Are We There Yet?

Post by Nicole:

This seems to be the girls' favorite question...needless to say, the answer was usually no. On Saturday morning, we left Fort Jackson, SC for our new home....Fort Hood, TX. We had everything planned out for the trip, including a reservation for along the way. Needless to say, the baby didn't want to cooperate with our plan. We ended up cancelling the hotel and finding another one two hours short of our original stop. After two very long days, we finally arrived on post this morning.

The Lord knows what we need when we need it. As I was sitting in the parking lot, waiting for Angel to get information on housing I received a phone call from a lady who attended our old church in Hanover. She wanted to let us know that we have been on her heart and mind and that she was praying for us. I gave her an update on our situation and she encouraged me about the housing that at least we are all together. Not long after that Angel came out and said that we would be receiving on post housing in the next day or two. YEH!!

Are you looking for a breakthrough in your life? Trust God! He may not always move in the manner in which we think He will.....but get ready for Him to move! Tonight Angel met with someone in housing and rec'd the keys to our 4 bedroom duplex.

Graduation Day

Today marked the culmination of the last 12 weeks of training at Fort Jackson.... GRADUATION DAY! It was a beautiful morning. Angel's family (mom -Sara, brother - Paul and sister - Damaris and her family) were able to join us for this momentous event. We were also pleased to have CH (Ret) Scott McCrystal from Springfield, MO and Superintendent of the SC District, Steve Brown attend Angel's graduation ceremony.

Here are a few pictures from today.
