God Is Our Fortress ~ Psalm 46

God is our refuge and strength,
    a very present[b] help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way,
    though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam,
    though the mountains tremble at its swelling. Selah
There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
    the holy habitation of the Most High.
God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved;
    God will help her when morning dawns.
The nations rage, the kingdoms totter;
    he utters his voice, the earth melts.
The Lord of hosts is with us;
    the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah
Come, behold the works of the Lord,
    how he has brought desolations on the earth.
He makes wars cease to the end of the earth;
    he breaks the bow and shatters the spear;
    he burns the chariots with fire.
10 “Be still, and know that I am God.
    I will be exalted among the nations,
    I will be exalted in the earth!”
11 The Lord of hosts is with us;
    the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah

I wanted to share some of what has been going on here since I haven't done a very good job of posting lately.

Our new house is almost done.  The details are being finalized and Lord willing we will be doing a walk through and moving in real soon.

I received my booklet for my next missions trip.  In less than a month I will be heading to New Mexico to work with widows and orphans.

Spent a weekend watching Max and

hanging out with Trinity while her parents were out of town.

I got Mom set up with her own email address...something that should have happened a long time ago.  Now it will be much easier for everyone to keep in contact with her.

I've been busy cat sitting these two brothers.  It's becoming a routine for me since I care for them twice a month.

We got a chance to meet up for dinner with some friends who were in town celebrating their 25th anniversary.  We hadn't seen the Downs' in years.  The fellowship that evening was very sweet!

We spent the weekend at the Venetian celebrating Father's day.  I'll post more pictures from that later.

The Bellagio was set up beautifully as always.  The detail of the creations they make are amazing.

Spent several days in my craft room creating and now my craft room is all packed away ready to move.  I can't wait to get into my new craft room.

Less than a day left...

...for this family to raise $100,000.  Read their story here, pray that they are able to meet their goal and if you are able to financially help I'm sure they would be greatly blessed by it.

LV Rescue Mission

Friday night we went to minister at the rescue mission.  Because of work we weren't able to make it for the food serving portion but we did get to minister through music.

 Four Men from church shared testimonies

 We sang two songs ~ Complete In Thee

and My Jesus Fair!

 Pastor ended the evening with a gospel message.

May God be Glorified through our serving!

The most recent update on the new house is we should be closing by June 21st.  Later than what we thought but we know that God's timing is perfect.  We did a quick walk through to check out the progress of the interior so here are some pictures of the inside.

God has greatly blessed us and we are looking forward to getting settled into this new house and having people over to fellowship.
