Container, Tractor & Dad

The container was delivered Friday.  The tractor came Monday and we loaded it and the cutter.

We loaded most of the other stuff we are taking to Tanzania, Africa Tuesday and Wednesday.  We are now in Arkansas again to help with Dad returning home on Saturday.  Doug has to pick up a few more things for the mission station and a few things for us and then we will have the container finished.  We will not ship it until our visas are officially "issued."  They are approved but have not been issued.  God has allowed us extra time to be here for Dad as he is recovering from his accident.  I am so glad that we are here for him during this time.  Dad is really looking forward to having a massage therapist (Doug) full time in the house for a couple of weeks.  If the visa's are issued in the next few days, we plan to leave on the 27th of this month.  If they do not, it will be 2012 before we set foot back in Africa for the third time.  God knows where He wants us and when.  We will continue to rely on Him for His perfect guidance in all things.  We look forward to continuing to be tools in His hands in Africa (or anywhere in the world,) and we are content to be here, doing all that we can do in Him while we are still "home." 

It is quite strange not having a "home" anymore.  I hope the people that bought our property are blessed.  I am thankful that we have been able to spend more time with my family as we have waiting for things to finalize. 

We are so, so VERY blessed.
