The Lord has been doing some wonderful things in our life these past few months. Both of us are excited to see that the Lord has once again begun to use us for His purposes! It has been a step-by-step restoration of the years the cankerworm and the palmerworm and the locust have eaten.
Can those times be recovered? No. But, the word of the Lord is sure that they can be restored (Joel 2:25).
Without going into great detail as to the dealings of the Lord that have brought us to this place, suffice it to say that we are moving. We have known for quite some time that the Lord is through with us here in SW Missouri; but we were not clear on what was next.
Now we are clear.
We are in the process of packing what few things we must have, leaving the rest behind, and moving to a small town in east central PA. It is happening so quickly that it is quite possible that the next message you will hear from us will be from that area.
There are some who have criticized us in the past for what appeared to them to be a sudden return to the Lord. Then, as now, this only appears to the natural mind as being sudden.
We have no idea about the dealings of God in a person’s life when they are being kept hidden from view.
Moses “all of a sudden” appeared in Egypt after 40 years of people deciding that he must be dead. Jesus “all of a sudden” appeared on the banks of the Jordan after not being heard from almost 20 years. Paul “all of a sudden” appeared in Jerusalem preaching the gospel that he had once destroyed.
We are “all of sudden” moving to PA after many months of the Lord’s speaking to our hearts. We have waited upon the Lord, kept His word close to our hearts, and He has given direction each step along the way.
It is an exciting time for us as we step out into the great unknown.
Your prayers for us are greatly appreciated.
