Blessings, Prayer Requests, and Schedule

Last Week’s Blessings:

  • Spending our last week with our daughter and grandkids, and even staying at their place while our trailer’s roof was replaced.
  • Safely arriving at Highland Lakes Camp before the snow and cold hit.
  • Having fellow SOWERs already at Highland Lakes greet us, all eager to get started on our projects here.
  • Literally, a new roof over our heads! 🤣 

You can pray: 

  • For everyone’s safety as we work at Highlands Lake. We will learn what we will be doing on Monday. 
  • We continue to wait, watch, and ask for His direction on our Apr and May SOWER projects. Due to the COVID issue and not being sure of what to expect next spring, we seek God’s wisdom and direction to know where He would have us work and travel for these projects.
  • That we keep our eyes always open to ways we can serve and encourage others around us wherever we currently reside.

2021 01 04 Blessings:

  • A warm, dry home. We had some pretty cold, stormy weather and were so thankful for our cozy little home-on-wheels.
  • Spending a little more time with our daughter and grandkids.
  • Being able to relax and catch up on a few things before moving on to our next project.

You can pray: 

  • Monday and Tuesday we are preparing our “land yacht” to get underway after sitting in one place for two months. Wednesday, we will travel first to Denton, TX to get our roof replaced. Then, on Saturday we hope to head south to Spicewood, TX for our next project. Please pray for safety as we travel, and that all will go well when our roof is replaced. This includes all the components removed from the roof working as they should when reinstalled. We remain hopeful there has been no structural damage due to the deteriorating roof and all that is need is the new roofing material installed. 
  • Two friends of ours have lost loved ones recently. Both are now taking care of older parents who were married 70+ years and lost their lifetime mate, and they lost a parent. Please ask for Father’s shalom during this time of loss.
  • We still wait, watch, and ask for His direction on our Apr and May SOWER projects. Due to the COVID issue and not being sure of what to expect next spring, we seek God’s wisdom and direction to know where He would have us work and travel for our Apr and May projects.
  • That we keep our eyes always open to ways we can serve and encourage others wherever we currently reside.

2020 12 28 Blessings:

  • Spending some downtime with our SOWER workmates, talking and playing Corn Hole. 
  • Attending a Christmas Eve Candlelight Service. It has been a long time since we’ve been able to do that.
  • Celebrating Christmas with our Allen, TX family! (But we missed our Idaho Family!).
  • Having some wonderful weather to work on projects needed to prepare for our departure the first week in January. We’ve been here for 2 months and that’s a long time to park; it tends to make us a bit rusty when it comes to travel preps!
  • Although we officially completed our project on Dec. 18, we went over to the Grayson building and fixed a few more things. It felt good to be able to help a bit more.

You can pray: 

  1. That we not stress too much about preparing for our departure and continue to take time to simply relax and live in the moment, enjoying the time we have left here in the Dallas area with our daughter and her family. Getting our “land yacht” underway after sitting in one place for two months takes a lot of attention to detail so as not to miss something important.
  2. Those who have come down with COVID: that they will recover quickly. Also, we will continue to remain healthy!
  3. We continue to wait, watch and ask for His direction on our Apr and May SOWER projects. At this point, we plan to be in AZ in March and are not sure which direction to head. A lot depends on what happens with the COVID issue next spring. We seek God to direct us to where He would have us work and travel during this time.
  4. That we keep our eyes always open to ways we can serve and encourage others wherever we currently reside.

2020 12 22 Blessings:

  • Completing our December SOWER project at Lake Lavon Camp (https://lakelavoncamp.com). What a blessing to be able to help them and at the same time visit with our daughter’s family.
  • One of the SOWER couples at our next project stepped up to the plate to cover for us while we are “missing in action” getting our new roof installed (see last week’s prayer requests). 
  • For no injuries as we went up and down ladders, used power equipment, and contorted our bodies into strange shapes reaching various places!
  • Our furry little travel buddies, Mr. Lucky and Gracie, who keep us entertained with their various personalities and antics! 
  • Continuing to spend time with our daughter and her family.

You can pray for: 

  • That we will take time to simply relax and live in the moment, enjoying the time we have left here in the Dallas area with our daughter and her family.
  • Those that continue to come down with COVID: that they will recover quickly. Also, that we will continue to remain healthy!
  • We continue to wait, watch and ask for His direction on our Apr and May SOWER projects. We will be in AZ in March and are not sure which direction to head.

  • That our eyes always be open to ways we can serve and encourage others wherever we currently reside.
