Back from Ohio

We had a great weekend in Ohio, scouting out places to live and jobs to apply for. We got to West Union Saturday afternoon and had a great time with the Reagans. The Sunday services also went well. And in spite my short nap, it was a wonderful day. Bro. Jimmy is a very good preacher and Jamin and I were both helped and challenged. It was nice to spend some time with the church people there. Many of them kept telling us how excited they were that we're moving there. I think we are going to have a wonderful church family! Today we went to look at a house! Yea! A lady in the church there is trying to sell it, but she's willing to rent it to us for very cheap for about six months. We really are hoping to buy soon, so that will give us time to save up and find a place closer to the church. But the house is great, it's a manufactured home (or a double wide) with three bedrooms, a large kitchen with great appliances, big windows all over, room for visiting families, just beautiful! And the low price would really help us in so many ways. Some of the church folks also had great ideas on jobs, so we're praying something can be settled soon. The job will determine if we can live in that house or if we'll have to find something in a different location. I cannot begin to tell you how excited we are! We are so thankful to the Lord that we are going to have a church home again. We talked about all these things most of the five hour drive back today. We can't wait to be there! We also looked at some newspapers on the way home and there are some really great houses for less than I expected. They say it's a buyer's market right now. I hope it still is in a few months when we can do something about it.

The next ultrasound is tomorrow. Can you teach children to obey while they are still in the womb? I'm trying it anyway. :) *She* will cooperate tomorrow.

It is fun to be able to keep track of your new baby, new job, new house, new church family, etc... with the click of a mouse!
