We moved out of motor home for winter with snow on the ground and the temperature dropping. This is the first time in our 8 years we have fully shut down our traveling ministry home. We have had some adjustment to living in an apartment. We can’t hear the rain on the roof and the rooms are huge. There is a echo when we talk.
We have been organizing, cleaning, and discovering new places here in the Mission’s Outpost building. Stephanie’s ability to have fun is infectious. Seeing her in a crawl space 8’ off the ground was precious. I have been sorting through keys and re-keying some door locks for more efficient access to areas of the building. It is unusually cold here in North Carolina and we are learning how to keep the building warm with minimal cost.
We are making changes to the RV park. I am looking for equipment that will monitor electric usage on each site to charge the correct amount.
When we took the Gibson family to the airport we had a key hand-off moment. It was hard to leave the airport seeing the family of 11 standing there collecting themselves for the journey ahead.
We drove off in 2 trucks and an SUV, realizing how God helps us say, ‚”Yes” to new adventures. The Gibson family will be in Hawaii until August, and we are running this ministry center while they are gone. In October we cared for the Gibson kids while the parents were at an inner healing prerequisite for this Hawaii trip. We thought about how expensive hiring a nanny for this time would have been. We are happy to help.
We also had friends and family visit, along with a missionary from F.I. It was nice to have a place to host people.
We were asked to clarify what DOTK is. Stephanie has a dream to encourage women in ministry, facilitating times of encouragement and prayer. We hoped to have a gathering this month but we had to cancel.
– My (Brian’s) dad continues to have fatigue and weakness.
Patience and Wisdom to make good decisions while running the facility.
We sold our car hauler trailer! Only $8,000 to go to pay off our truck!
