moving...

So, the request the other day for prayer... here is the deal...
Looks like we are moving to a different region.  Sometimes a door looks like it is open, but its really not... or maybe there was a lesson to learn by walking through it for a bit.  Anyway, we are basically starting over.  We aren't really sure what the next step will be, but we are waiting to hear.  Please just pray for strength, direction, peace, and sanity for us.  We will keep you updated as much as we can... keep reading.  Maybe I won't have to sell all those little girl outfits after all... When one door closes, another door opens... we can't wait to see what God has in store for us.  
By the way... a few of you have wished that you had a way to email us and you do!  Just check with my mom or Brad's mom to get the address... we'd love to hear from you. :)  Please keep the comments coming!  It gives us something to look forward to each time we do get computer access. :)  Love you all!  
One more thing... for more reading fun, check out Teresa's blog!  She's got some FUNNY stuff on there and enjoys picking on Brad a bit, so some good pics too! :)  Enjoy!

Try not to be too discouraged. Sometimes it's hard to understand at the time why things happen as they do, but I know from experience that God always has a plan and purpose behind it all, and this ultimately will be used for your good and His glory. You are in our constant prayers.
Love, Ron & Anne

Thought I would let you know, we took 18 to Mexico and brought 18 home, to Grace and Nancy's dismay!;-) We had a great time and accomplished our, excuse me, God's goals. Built the house, VBS with the area kids, visited a couple of orphanages and deposited a sizable amount of money in the Mexico economy. Katie did a great job with Spanish and the rest did, well I guess I should just speak for myself. At least I know how to ask for the restroom which was often.

I look forward to checking your blog to hear some news of how things are going. Love you and miss you.

Your faith is strong and will see you through. On your first Christmas with the little one you will look back at this and think of how fast everything went! You will!! At that time it will all be a blur. Enjoy the journey!! Your experience will help others some day. :)
