Well, we moved into our new home this past Friday. Boxes are everywhere. I thought I was going crazy packing everything, but I believe I might be losing it more unpacking. I absolutely hate not being able to find things that you know are somewhere in the land of the lost, in one of the zillion boxes you have stacked up in the garage. I guess, I could turn into a game and pretend I was on a treasure hunt. Then again, later on when I begin to discover these “lost” items, I might feel more like an archeologist digging up things of the past. Anyway, I feel like neither of these at the moment. Aside from all the craziness of unpacking boxes, we stil have no furniture. Our furniture is due to arrive on Thursday, and hopefully that means early Thursday morning. We DO have beds, but we have become the outside dining family (since we do have our outside patio set). While inside the kids stay mainly in their bedrooms since they have a place to sit. I am eager to wash and dry clothes. Yes, you heard me correctly. I WANT to do laundry. I have never wanted to do laundry this bad in my life, I don’t think. It is funny how you miss things when you don’t have that luxury at the moment.
Brian invited a young man over the day, and they sat outside and discussed the new church plant and the vision that my hubs has. The young man has been in ministry and would really like to help in worship and getting the church started. So, we have officially had our first guest. Brian has invited other people who are interested in what we are doing to come over this weekend. (Yay! The furniture will be here then!)
Kirstin and I went for a walk/jog around the neighborhood last night. It was nice getting out of the land of crazy for a little bit. The temperature was just right (although K insisted that it was still too hot, and we should have waited till the sun went down). There was a slight breeze. My body was loving the activity! I actually think I might get to do my Chalean Extreme workout today! Yippie! Hopefully, I can get the rest of the fam to join me in an early evening walk today.
I will update on our new journey more, but just wanted to give everyone a peek into what we have been up to lately. We are excited about all that God has in store for us here. I know God is going to show up in mighty and awesome ways. He always does! He knows no other way to be. There are going to be doors blown open for the Kingdom of God, and doors slammed shut in the face of Hell.(Hell shall not previal!) God has laid His claim here, and we surrender. Please continue praying for us and the new church start. Pray that God will provide in supernatural ways for our family. Pray that God will bring people who will be vital in this church start. Pray that those who are seeking and searching will be drawn to Him. Pray that we will be filled a passion for Jesus like none before! Pray that the Kingdom of Heaven will be made known to this community. Pray that God will reveal to us what He wants for this church start, and that we will have the eyes to see it. And lastly, pray that God will reveal to you how you can help.
Stay tuned for more of the Turner happenings…….
Grace & Peace, Jaclyn
