March came in like a Lion!

yes we are under a lot of snow here in the North East! The night of march 1st into march 2nd brought over a foot of snow, this was on top of 2 other storms that dropped at least that much before it! One of which forced us to cancel the dessert that I mentioned in my last update!! I will say though that it is beautiful and our boys LOVE it! So thank you if you were praying for our NZ Dessert on the 22nd, just fast forward your prayers to this next sunday March 8th. The blessing of the storm is that by rescheduling we picked up a few couples who can come to the 8th. So we will be presenting to 5 couples that afternoon. God has also answered our prayers on the work front for Rob, the last few weeks has brought some work his way, we are so thankful for that. Please pray that work continues through our winter months. In the next week we will be meeting with the missions board of the local church that is taking us on. They are giving us time in that meeting to hear our vision, the vision of cession|community, and what our needs are. That has prompted some great discussion with Brett in NZ, and has been a good process for us to go through as cession (and ourselves) continue to develop during this time of team building. We will also have some opportunities to continue building relationship with another local church that Rob met with last month. So, we have our "to do" list and our marching orders for the next month as we continue to plan up coming meetings/contacts with individuals and churches. We are also trying to "think out of the box", Rob has been setting up a "join our cause" page on Facebook, and we have other creative ideas in the mix. One of my big reasons for writing tonight was to share praise for our awesome God, first He gave me strength and peace during my recent MRI, and secondly He continues to confirm my healing as we found out the MRI is CLEAR!!!! Thank you for taking the time to check our updates, it makes us feel that we are in touch with you and being a part of our journey means the world to us. Check out prayer requests on the side and we will be updating again soon. Until then Grace and Peace..............
