Time goes by quickly enough but it really seemed to fly by even faster with Rolf only home for 2 months!
We just returned from an enjoyable and restful 2 weeks in Florida – in spite of the fact when we left Sherri was being treated for bronchitis and then while there she had to visit Urgent Care with some breathing issues! We enjoyed some warm weather and the warm hospitality of Sherri’s sister-in-law in Gainesville and friends in Bradenton and The Villages. Sherri also met a friend in Ocala for their “annual lunch” date. The drive down and back was just like we like it – uneventful – no issues and no bad weather!! Thanks for your prayers!
Monday, January 27th Rolf will be returning to China. He will be starting a new 12 week “Faith or Fiction” class when he gets back. His leaders are now carefully recruiting new members. PRAY for God’s hand on those they recruit and for their hearts to be prepared for receiving God’s Good News!
It became apparent a while ago that in the future we would need to find more affordable housing. After thinking and praying and praying and thinking we realize the future has arrived. This has been a very difficult decision especially for Sherri. God had placed us in a very special neighborhood where neighbors have become friends that socialize and really care for each other. It has been a very safe and secure place for Sherri and of course that makes it hard to leave.
We were encouraged when we found that affordable senior apartments are being built practically in our backyard. They are scheduled to be completed February/March of 2018. We have already contacted the property managers and have our name down to be sent an application which we should expect sometime near the end of the year. Meanwhile we will be on the lookout for what else might be available. Please PRAY for the right move for us.
“The Sovereign Lord is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to tread on the heights.” Habakkuk 3:19
As long as we have been doing this it never gets easier to say goodbye. Rolf won’t be back home until June 29th. We cannot tell you enough how thankful and grateful we are for you to be on this journey with us. We could not do this without you. You are a blessing and pray God is blessing you in return.
