Behold, how good and how pleasant it is…

God is so faithful, isn’t He? Not only has He provided us some wonderful friends in a foreign land, but He’s also given them the same desire for a home church. We LOVE Don and Gina and their children!

We are in the beginning stages of establishing a home fellowship and feel we have so much for the Lord to teach us.  Our desire is to throw out all our preconceived ideas about what church is supposed to be like and instead rely totally on scripture as a model.  This is a lot more difficult than it sounds when you find out that a lot of what you thought was important in a church has little or no scriptural basis! (so where DID it come from?)  Once again we can see how God’s timing is always purposeful and perfect!  How awesome to have two families move to the same area within a few months of each other who have so many of the same goals!

The adults are outnumbered 2 to 1 by children, and we like that very much!

Our children seem to tolerate each other pretty well.

Here’s Gina and her little sprout, Abby.  Gina can do anything.  Like sew, milk cows, build stanchions, and butcher all manner of animals.  Maybe if I don’t aggravate her too much, she’ll teach me a thing or three.   She is  so sweet!
