More blessings to tell about…

Ah, this busy life. Last I updated my blog, we were still househunting, and “preparing for rain.” Well, we’re still preparing for rain. 🙂 This is life in our neck of the woods. Two of us have a house (I love my little house!!!) and two of us are still waiting and searching, and holing up at the new center while waiting. Would you mind helping us pray?

This week is also a big week for us at Ransom. We’re putting on a big banquet and inviting lots of girls. At the banquet, we’ll be introducing our new Discipleship Skills Training which is designed to help women find new life in Christ, and new opportunities vocationally. We need prayers! That’s what I mean when I say we’re still preparing for rain. We’re taking a plunge, and there’s lots of really big things that only God can do. But it’s exciting to be a part of the adventure! I wouldn’t trade the opportunity for the world. 🙂

Thought I might just put up some pictures to give a little glimpse of life in my little corner. Crazy, fun, hard, inspiring, draining, amazing, stretching, wonderful good this life has been lately. Here’s a little taste…

We moved! Thankfully we were able to stay smiling and happy through all of that packing and dividing into two separate locations. 🙂2014-03-17 19.34.33

one of my favorite parts of staff retreat, besides the people, is the mornings outside with God, enjoying the beauty and quiet. and the coffee. 🙂IMG_3487 IMG_3500 IMG_3501

We watched a DVD series on encouragement, and then had small group discussions after each session. I loved my small group!
