Monterey

We just received the word early this morning that we are moving to Monterey.  We had put in our application and most of you know the threat that came with it.  We continued on faith knowing God's sovereignty, and we are overwhelmed that God would continue to be so merciful toward us.  Jake could have easily been deployed for a year, as that was the intent of his higher up in the Marine Corps Chain.  Again we are excited and thank you everyone who was mindful to pray for us while we waited for the results.

yes, california! Isn't that great? The high there yesterday was like 66 degrees and lows in the 50's. We are so jazzed!

Enjoy your summer now :) I'm so happy for you, but so sad for me. Maybe you'll even get our "old" house! What degree is Jake after?

Jake, "if you love me, keep my commandments." John 14-15 "my brethren count it all joy when you fall into various trials knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience but let patience have its perfect work that you may be perfect and complete lacking nothing. James 1 2-4. proverbs 10-9 "he who walks with integrity walks securely." Like your dad, you have been tested big time this year regarding your christian faith. "like your dad your integrity is not for sale, and you are not politically correct" therefore this secular world will hate you! We are pilgrims this is not our home! Mom and I are proud of you for standing your ground and putting your family ahead of work, all glory to Christ our savior.
