Life in Indiana is going well, but still trying to get use to the temperature of early winter. We have already experienced the tornado sirens going off, to blustering winds, to a day of snow already! And we are only in the first full week of December!
I know, I know.....it will only get worse (weather wise!)
Other than the weather, our greatest challenges have been learning our way around and getting to know people. We have had some great opportunities to meet people representing different areas of our ministry. We have met with folks from the State convention, other ministry leaders, pastors, and of course international students. Arriving here in the area at the end of the semester appears to be to our advantage (thanks to the Lord!) because it is giving us a chance to get to learn our "environment" first before offering our "services." The other awesome thing is how God has sounded the trumpet of our arrival based on His reputation of providing us a house. We have people coming up to us, when they find out our name, and say, "I heard about how God got you here!" We are constantly reminding our family and those who we meet that this is ALL God's doing! He gets the credit!
Now we are getting settled in, trying to get adjusted, but also, earnestly seeking the Lord to see where He is working and to join Him. We know without a shadow of a doubt that we are to be here! It is now praying for discernment and wisdom in daily decision making for our home and ministry. Please continue to pray for us!
