Exceedingly More

We've had a few full days of bus travel for our crew this week. In fact, as I write this, we are passing snowdrift after snowdrift as we approach the North Dakota border -- quite a change from the sunny beaches of Florida we enjoyed only a few days ago! [smile]

And we're approaching the final leg our our journey before heading the bus towards Nebraska. While our hearts and minds are starting to think *home* more often these days, we are looking forward to finishing strong as we share at the North Dakota Homeschool Conference this weekend. Thank you in advance for your prayers -- this will be our first homeschool conference, so we are seeking the Lord for His grace through the weekend, both in singing ministry and a workshop.

But to give you a quick re-cap of our week (besides endless hours on the road!!!), the Lord has blessed us with a new trailer! Yes, after 6 years and thousands upon thousands of miles, our faithful black trailer has been nearing the retirement stages of life.

As we drove through Georgia en route to South Carolina on Wednesday, this was made even more apparent. Ol' Faithful's wheel bearings went out to the point of almost damaging the spindle. In God's time-table, this *happened* to occur less than a mile from a first-rate trailer repair shop! Before long we were fixed up and on our way...



And on our way to South Carolina where a dear family business had a brand new trailer waiting for us -- at a fraction of the retail value! It is beautiful and sturdy -- and much better built for the heavy speakers and equipment we haul around. A huge THANK YOU to you dear friends in Abbeville! God used you to bless our family exceedingly above in both our physical needs and spiritual fellowship! We love you!

"But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
Now unto God and our Father [be] glory for ever and ever. Amen."
Philippians 4:19-20
