Lee's NEW truck!!!

We feel so loved. I know that we are loved, but we really feel it today. Joey & Angie Harville have been on our support team since our internship. They have been so faithful and encouraging to us. We've hung out with them several times through the years...and Lee's been able to talk trucks and hunting and all kinds of guy-country living things with Joey and the guys from Jena. Lee made the comment once that it was his dream to own a Chevy Silverado Z71. When it was time for Joey to get a new work truck, they remembered what Lee said, and they decided to give the old work truck to Lee. I think they were more excited about giving Lee the truck than they were to get the new truck!! So, Lee is the proud owner of a '98 Chevy Silverado Z71 4x4!!!
A crazy thing about the Kingdom of God is that we all have to trust God with our finances and everything else that we own. He gives it to us - whether we're in full-time vocational ministry or not. When I was a teacher, HE was the One who provided my job and my salary. Sure, the money came in at the same time every month, but He was the One who made it happen...not the school board. Now that we're missionaries, and our finances come through people who choose to support us, and it's not always the same amount or at the same time every month...we know that God is still in charge of our finances. Being missionaries, He just chooses to have us partner with people. It's been a test of our faith on multiple levels, but God has been so faithful to us. He has given us more than we need...like a Z71 truck...a house with a yard..."Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart." He really has. He's been so good to us. In the times when things are hard, we can look around and see the things that God has provided for us. We can know that He has our best interest in mind. He cares so deeply for us...not because we're missionaries, but because we're His children. He cares for you just as much too...
