Just in case you are wondering what 82 days is all about, that is the number of days we have until we leave for Colorado! It hardly seems possible! We have been dreaming, planning and thinking about this day for over 10 years and now it is right around the corner. This Sunday Ed and I are giving a presentation at our church, Trinity Bible Church in South Sutton, New Hampshire, on our plans for Soaring Wings Ministries. Tonight we were at the church setting things up for the presentation and I told Ed that sometimes it all seems like a dream that this is really happening...that we really are going to be permanently moving to Colorado in 82 days and that Soaring Wings will quickly move from the planning stage to a REALITY! For many years I have been wondering about who would live at Soaring Wings Ministries and very soon we will have the priviledge of meeting the families who we will be sharing our lives with. The Colorado Coalition for the Homeless has reported that the number of homeless families has increased by 19 percent in the past 4 months. It is rather abstract to think of "19 percent" but "19 percent" translates into families. These are families who have no place to live. Families with children who don't have enough to eat. Families who perhaps are living in their car instead of a home. It bothers Ed and I that there are families who are trying to live under such conditions and it bothers God too. Is it a coincidence that we will be leaving for Colorado in 82 days just as the percentage of homeless families in Colorado has increased in the past 4 months? No, it is not a coincidence. It is God's guidance and timing and it is His love for the homeless families in Colorado that is directing us to leave for Colorado in 82 days to help these families. Please be praying for us as we prepare to leave for Colorado in 82 days and please be praying for the families that we will soon be serving through Soaring Wings Ministries. We would love it if you would come to our church this Sunday to hear our presentation on Soaring Wings Ministries. It is Trinity Bible Church and the address is 539 Rte. 114 South Sutton, New Hampshire. The church service starts at 10:45 a.m. If you would like for us to come to your church to give a presentation on Soaring Wings Ministries just let us know. We would be delighted to share with your church family. From the bottom of our hearts, thank-you for all your prayers!
