Thank you to all who have prayed for me through the last several posts regarding my family's desire to move back to Minnesota. In the last few weeks we have seen God provide with some powerful answers to prayer.

We sincerely believed that the Lord was leading us to rejoin our extended families, so we prayed unceasingly for a new job and for the ability to sell our home in Mississippi. I was particularly inspired by the Lord's parables, where he taught us to persevere in prayer. My wife and I were confident that God was leading, so we stepped out in faith and made an offer on a home in Minnesota. It was a little backwards, and eyeballs were rolling I'm sure. Usually you get a job and then buy a home. But within two weeks I had a job offer (in a completely different trade!). And within another two weeks we found a buyer for our home, and we are closing on the sale at the end of this week.

After more than three years, we are finally moving back to grandmas, grandpas, aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters, nephews, nieces and cousins. We are completely in awe of God's wonderful mercy and rejoicing in His goodness.

On yet another positive note, my fifth CD is almost completely written. I'm hoping to save up for a good keyboard and start recording. Please keep this project in your prayers, too. I hope that the songs will draw many closer to our wonderful Savior Jesus Christ.

I still don't have a job in Minnesota, but I am more convinced than ever that God is moving us in that direction. This has been a good lesson for my two young sons on how we need to persevere in prayer. It's been a good lesson for me, too.

Maybe today...

If you're reading this, please offer up a little prayer for me and my family.
