It has been a CRAZY weekend - it just so happens that the weekend the Lord moves for us to be able to begin the actual process of relocating is the same weekend as our community garage sale. Now...I am not a fan of garage sales, but when you need to get rid of a bunch of stuff in a hurry and want to make a few bucks in the process, it's not a bad gig. His timing was perfect!
One amazing thing that happened on Friday was that a total stranger came by to shop. Once she heard why we were moving, she handed Brigit a check for $500 to help us with our relocation - SIMPLY UNBELIEVABLE!!!
We have so many things to do before our departure at the end of July, but I know that God is going to be faithful.
Our major prayer requests are that we can find the right vehicle and house in Costa Rica for our family - so please stand with us for this to come to pass! (We still need $12,000 to come in to get our truck.)
Thank you all so much for your encouraging words over the weekend; we sincerely appreciate them!
Every week we are adding people to our team for this trip in July. If you have ever thought about going on a short-term mission trip, this is your year!

God is moving tremendously! Yesterday we had another $1,000 come in for our truck fundraiser - we are now up to $2,200....only $17,800 to go.
In addition, mission trips to Costa Rica are starting to line up. People are already asking about our July 2012 trip, I met with a Christian School that may bring as many as 30 kids the summer of 2013 AND I have another meeting tomorrow to discuss hosting a trip for a group of ladies from a 1,500 member church. God is good!!!
