Well we have been in Madras for almost a week and finally felt like we may be catching up on sleep. In my post I mentioned feeling stretched and now I must admit to feeling squished, which led me to think a clay and how it has to be worked to be useful. How does a car full of stuff feel like too much? When you are trying to put it in out-of-the-way places in someone elses house for an indeterminate amount of time. Perhaps the only one of us not experiencing a lack of personal space is Renna, who is gobbling up the constant attention and proximity of parents and grandparents. I am truly thankful for the opportunity to be here in Madras while we finish raising support, thankful that we are packed up and out of our house,and thankful that God is working in us as he prepares us for our move to Peru. So for now you will find us in Madras, Oregon listening for what is next on our journey. While we are here we are getting our mailing lists together (so if you want to get our news letters from us be sure we have your e-mail or physical address), reestablishing good habits (physically and spiritually) as these were hard to maintain on the road, and starting what projects we can for Extreme. Pray with us that all this stretching and squeezing will be to good effect and help us to better reflect the glory of God.
6 For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ. 7 But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from Godand not from us. 2 Corinthians 4:6-7
