Notes from the South

Hello! There's been a lot happening here - a lot to update!
We received word on the house today that there is only one small step left and it is ours! - Very exciting. We are anxious to be in our own home and settle in a bit more!

We have tried a couple churches - Morning Star and another much smaller church in Charlotte. We are praying and listening for where God wants us, though we do have a pretty good feel at this point...God has been good to bless us with some divine encounters with other believers who have loved and encouraged us!

I was talking to a friend the other day and had to tell her of some of the cultural things I am noticing here. Back in the Tri-Cities it was not at all uncommon to see Taco Trucks on the side of the road. Here, however, it is all about the BBQ. There are random signs in parking lots that say "Bobby BBQ - here on Tuesday" - And it is quite the ordeal - they are packed out! Just yesterday I saw one called, and I'm not kidding - Pig Palace - um...a little weird, yeah - but true.

In family news- Micah has started walking!!! We were having dinner with friends and he took the plunge. We had the camera on hand and caught his first steps - he is soooo proud of himself!!!

That's it for now! Thanks to all of you have called and listened and prayed and supported -- I love you tons!
