(Michael) T-minus 7 days until we pack it all up and head out to the land in which Bobby Knight* once was king. Wow! Things have moved faster than we ever imagined. We knew that we would be moving sometime during this year but we thought it would be in late fall. To our surprise, God put some things in place that made it clear that the wisest course of action was to make the move at the end of this month. The biggest of these things was a family has been kind enough to open their home to us until we move into Orchard Glen Apartments in July. This will save us nearly $2,000 in living expenses. Even know most things are falling in place we still could use some prayer in a couple of areas.
We have only three major prayer requests for this week. First, we ask that you would pray that the move goes well. We have a fairly tight timetable in which to pull this move off. Any little thing like our moving truck breaking down or a helper getting injured would really mess everything up. Please pray that God would ease our travels. Second, we ask that you would pray that our fundraising campaign goes well. We are given out the majority of our letters this weekend to friends and family. Please pray that God would help us find folks how are both desirous and able to invest in our life’s ministry. Finally, please pray that Michael is able to land a good part time job in Bloomington. He has several strong leads but has yet to hear back from any of them. Thanks!
