A New Beginning

Thanks to everyone for your prayers this past week!!!! Overall, it was a good week. God is faithful. We moved into the house and started taking care of the girls Tuesday, although they still won't move out to the house for a week or two. Here are some pictures of the girls painting... They are all really excited about their rooms and have been a good help painting.

Isaiah 64:1,2,4... "Oh that thou wouldest rend the heavens, that thou wouldest come down, that the mountains might flow down at they presence, As when the melting fire burneth, the fire causeth the waters to boil, to make thy name known to thine adversaries, that the NATIONS may tremble at thy presence! For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor preceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him."
*Wisdom to deal with the girls as they test our boundaries and try to get away with whatever possible.
* That God's presence would flow down upon our new house here in Magdalena.
* That all here at CVE, all here in Magdelena, and that we may know more and more the greatness of our God and tremble at His presence... and that God will do above and beyond all we can ask or imagine.

So glad you were able to move into your house. Looks like the girls are having fun painting. No doubt this will make it seem all the more like 'home' for them. Praying for His wisdom to guide and direct us all!

Love & prayers,
A Carol

I have only gotten to know the girls from two week-long visits, but it didn't even take the 2nd trip for me to realize how special they are! I am so thankful that you have moved down there to give them the opportunity of family life and their own home. I love looking at the pictures and only wish I could be there to hear their excited chatter! May God bless your home with peace & joy through this big learning curve; my husband and I will be praying for you and your family of girls! Love in Christ from Michigan!

Keith & Emily,
Thankful to see your updates and the progress of your home. Looks like you could have used Tom for some plumbing. Maybe he still can help with something this fall when we hope to come. Love you and praying for you and the girls.

Looks like they had a great time painting! I wish I could be with you right now, but you're in my thoughts and prayers.
