March 11th - Georgia - 8:18pm

It was a blessing to be able to meet up with the Wissmanns this past week.



May you all have a safe trip home and ‘finish strong.’ ; )

We got up at 0228 with the Wissmanns to watch the space shuttle launch! (Yes, that’s 2:28AM) And we certainly weren’t the only ones up since traffic in front of the church got awful busy right after it was over!


As you can see I did not get a good picture. Basically all you can see is sky all lit up. It was very cloudy so we only saw it for a few seconds. The BOOM from take off took a little while to reach us but it was pretty neat.

This morning we received pictures of our house which had been broken into and trashed. Some of the details of what was taken are still unknown, though the losses could be large we are trusting God for His will to be done in our lives and in the life of the person who did this. We’re reminded of the verse, “where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” May our goal be storing treasure in heaven where thieves do not break in an steal and moths and rust cannot destroy.

We also received word of the death of a friend back home after a battle with chronic illnesses. Prayers for Beverly Priestley’s family would be appreciated.

Our stop at a rest area brought some excitement with a private truck trailer with Ron Paul all over it!


Awesome! Oh how our bumper stickers pale in comparison. : (

By the time we find wifi and post this we will only have 4 days left of this trip. Home is in sight. : ) May the Lord grant strength to finish out these last few days.


P.S. We’re not in Georgia now! We’ve traveled a little ways since the 11th and we’re in North Carolina. Home is getting closer everyday!

We're sorry to hear of the robbery, and will definitely keep you in prayer as you face this. Also, we'll pray for the Priestley family. May God bless you all richly with His peace and comfort.
