"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind." ~~Wisdom from Dr. Seuss:


I'm Backkkkkkkkkkkkkk!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm back!!!
Well kind of sort of in a way.
See, we have NO INTERNET!!!  I know, is that not like one of the worst feelings? hahaha.
The only time I have access to the internet where I can actually have time to use it, is at Momma's.
So let me do a quick catch up and we'll go from there shall we????

We are still homeless from the flood.  We are staying at our Church in a nice 5th wheel camper.  Which is great, don't get me wrong, but home, well Home is Home, know what I mean??
Nannie and Josh are with Mom & Dad and since Keith is still at home, it made for very tight quarters.
We had home insurance, but not flood insurance (since we were above flood plain) so our insurance would not cover anything!!!  I mean not the first thing.  So basically we were able to salvage a few clothes, and my dishes.  It's kind of like when you are just starting out married.  Except the stress is much different, and well, it's not such a "happy" time.
We have already received some funds from FEMA would should help some but basically covers only your inside stuff such as washer, dryer, fridge, stove, etc. 
So now we are in the house looking again. 
Now that in it's self brings me back to our trip to Norway to be with the Speers. 
Who are missionaries from our Church organization
For several years we have had a huge burden for missions.  God has dealt with us for a long time about it.  So we finally went (to Norway) to see.  I have to honestly say when I stepped off the plane, I felt like I was home for the first time ever.  It was an amazing and odd feeling at the same time.  How can you grow up somewhere called "home" and suddenly it not feel like home? 
This now feels like home.

I cried almost the whole 24hr trip home.
I cried all day the next day.
Needless to say my Momma is not thrilled.
She is happy knowing God is calling us for a great work.
She is not happy knowing her only daughter wants to move 4,344 miles across an ocean to do it.
Now it is waiting on God to open up all the doors.
We have to find jobs before we can get a visa, which will only be good for 6months.
Then you have to continually reapply.

So in the mean time, do we buy a house?
Move closer to work, or continue to drive an hour?
So many questions, so few answers it seems.
I prayed for direction and confirmation about going/staying in Norway.
God graciously gave us both.
He just forgot to let us in on the details.
Until then, we will just wait upon the Lord.

Wow! So awesome to be called on like that! I hate that your insurance didn't cover anything.

That is a lot to think about but I know God will steer you in the right direction. Hopefully things will fall into place soon.
