Well, we finally made it to Alaska! We have just finished 10 wonderful days of vacation with Rob's family in Washington state! We had a wonderful time, and saw some absolutely beautiful places!! Rob's Uncle Steve lives 3 miles south of the Canadian border in a tiny little town called Curlew. What a beautiful place! We had a much needed time of relaxing and visiting with family before we headed to the far north! When things settle down a bit I will post some pictures of our vacation...
We arrived in Fairbanks around 3:30 pm this past Sunday afternoon. Pastor Paul, and Chris and Jeannie and crew were there to meet us at the airport! The boys were so excited to see their buds again! Then, that evening our new church home, First Assembly (Fairbanks), held a welcome barbeque in our honor! Rob spoke and basically shared with our new church family about the amazing ride we have been on the past few months! God has truly shown us how big and amazing He is, and how all we need to do is trust Him to provide for us, and He will. I'm not sure if all of you reading this know that we sold 6 vehicles in about two weeks right before we left Greenville! The amazing thing about that is that these vechicles were all pretty pricey, and Rob and I basically sat around with our jaws wide open as one vehicle after another was driven out of our driveway! Anyway, back to the barbeque... We had a wonderful time of meeting our new church family, and of course eating wonderful food. Then, to top things off, the church had a pantry shower for us! Let's just say there is so much stuff, I'm not sure where it is all going to fit! We have truly been blessed by our new church family!
Now that we are in Alaska, hopefully things will settle down a bit, and I will be able to post updates more frequently! To everyone in Greenville, we love you and miss you, but we KNOW we are doing what God wants us to do!
One final note... I just want to say again, for anyone reading this that may doubt God's will and blessing for your life... all you need to do is be WILLING to say , "YES". If you do that you will truly be amazed at the miracles that will unfold as you walk along that path of faith!
