Just wanted to give an update on our stay at the land. We’ve been here now about three weeks and it’s been a real blessing. Actually, things are coming together very quickly. The land we have is at about 8,000 feet so it’s been getting cold. During the day it’s in the high 40’s and 50’s and at night it’s been between 4 and 27 degrees (in fact the pipes on our trailer freeze every night!). When we got here we contacted some contractors and talked to them about getting some work done on the land. We wanted to get septic put in, get a water tank, some gravel put in, a shed built, and a barn type dwelling. At first the contractors said it was getting too cold and they wanted to wait until the spring. However, a couple days later they decided to go ahead and do the work and they were working on the land a couple days after that. So right now we have everything done except the barn which should be here in a couple weeks. So, Lord-willing, we plan on staying here through December which should give us enough time to get everything finished. The land itself is really nice. It basically full of huge pine trees and surrounded by mountains. We’re on about 10 acres but we’re literally surrounded by thousands of acres of state and federal land. So the backyard seems almost endless! We’ve always lived in the city.   Aside from us there are just a few other people nearby. However, we do see a lot of wildlife..especially deer and elk. In fact, I went on a hike a couple nights ago and as I was almost back to our trailer I walked right up on two elk. They’re big animals. I was about 100 feet from them and think I startled them as much as they startled me. In addition to getting things done here we’ve been using our time to stay in the Word of God and in prayer. I was telling a brother how easy, and fulfilling, it is when God is filling you with His Spirit and using you in ministry. It’s been much more difficult for me to be removed from all of that, to slow down some, have a little work to do and spend the rest of the time seeking the Lord. Not that seeking the Lord is difficult but more so being isolated, away from brethren and preaching. But I know the Lord is using this time to refresh our souls before He sends us back out. So I’m thankful the Lord is giving us this time to rest in Him. Extended times to be away from others to seek the Lord don’t come often so really we’re thankful for it.

I've also written about a few things I’ve been thinking about lately on my blog. I figured I would set up a blog to write about topics that don’t necessarily have to do with either our ministry or family update. You can read my post by clicking on this link:
