Prayer Requests

For this week:

* Pray that we would please SOON get a call from Nebraska! We STILL have not heard Kevin's test results that he took almost two weeks ago to know if he could get a job there or not. We are getting sooo frustrated and discouraged about that, and we feel like giving up on it altogether but know we've waited this long and are so close now!

* It's also been a week since Kevin did the test and interview at the plant in Iowa, so we're also waiting for results from them too, although it is only our second choice for locations.

* Pray that God would work the details of our situation. Our "things" have been in storage for the last 2 months. I packed vacation-style: just enough clothes for what we had room for and the bare minimum for toiletries and everything. Well, both kids are moving up a clothes size (2T pants for Eli and 12-month clothes for Hannah) and I don't have much of anything for them. I had brought a box or two of spare contacts, but now I've used them all and am currently wearing my very last pair. They're 2-week contacts, and it looks that we'll be here at least a month more until we're in a house and our belongings are returned to us. Also, both Kevin's and my cell phones are literally falling apart. Our Sprint contract is up in January, and with the move we'll be switching service providers, so just pray that our phones will hold out until then. Just pray that all the little details will work themselves out.

* Pray for our finances. We've been two months without income now. So far we haven't had to even tap into our savings, but it's close now.

* It's Kevin's birthday next week, on Tuesday, and I have absolutely nothing planned. The things he's interested in are crazy expensive, and I just have no clue what to do otherwise. I feel really horrible about it and want him to have a good day, a special day, especially because I know he's been so stressed lately. Pray that it will be a good day for him, despite the circumstances. And if you have any ideas on what to do, please share!!

* Above all pray for peace and patience. We're all under great stress and frustration that we're snapping at each other left and right. We so greatly want to get settled and know that it's going to be yet another month for a house AFTER we finally get word on a job. Pray for joyful hearts.

Thank you! We'll keep you updated when there's something to update!

UPDATE! Kevin finally got a hold of the HR lady for Nebraska, and he passed the POSS test! We still have to wait another few days or a week or whatever for the actual job offer but we know it's coming. Without the actual job we're not sure what we can do for a house just yet, but for sure we'll be doing all we can to get the ball rolling.

"...but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience..." James 5:3

Be of good cheer, God is in control and He will take care of you!

Go read Matthew 6:19-34 and consider, God is your provider and He won't forget you! His timing is PERFECT - ALWAYS!!

God has left his peace, you just have to receive it!!

"Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." John 14:27

Strengthen your heart in the Lord!! There is no where else you can!! Big {{{HUGS}}} to you!!
