When God says “Go!” you better be ready!
We put our house up for sale on a Thursday, and by Friday evening we had signed a contract with a potential buyer – who is working on a closing date before the end of October. Actually, we would like to “leave Dodge” (like they say around here) by October26, Lord willing! We will be travelling north to visit friends and supporters – staying for a time with our son Nate & Emily – before traveling across Canada to visit more friends and supporters. We will also be able to visit with our daughter Heidi & Mark in north Idaho, and our son Aaron & Avé in California, before returning to Alabam to pick up our stored stuff to move to Sanford, Florida. Will you be available for a visit along our way?
Martha and her two brothers are also working hard at sorting and clearing out the Peterson homestead, and I have been helping as I can with different projects to help it sell: like, installing new light fixtures, helping rebuild the front porch, mudding & painting walls, yard work, etc. We do ask that you pray with us that both houses will sell quickly. Then, there remain decisions about what to store, what to take with us, what to try to sell, what to give away or just throw away.
So we thank you for joining us in praising and praying for…
1- for our house sale to finalize quickly, as we move to Florida for about a year or so, to develop a primary school children’s curriculum for teaching Firm Foundation Bible lessons.
2- for wisdom as we sort and pack our things, keeping our 2-year overseas assignment in Haiti in mind (see the About tab in our Ministry website here. )
3- for major transitions in several West African countries in October (watch international news for updates.)
1- for many voices of affirmation as we again prepare for overseas service with New Tribes Mission.
2- praise God “in advance” (like they say in Africa) for the curriculum developing experience I will be able to get before moving to Haiti.
3- for the wonderful 4 years of ministry we have had here in Alabama.
