These were taken yesterday afternoon. Considering the circumstances, we are all doing EXTREMELY well (better than expected).

February to November is a long time, that’s all I have to say. If the Lord so blesses us, we may see Jeremy briefly between training and his actual deployment.

I’m thankful God is so good to us! Thank you for all your prayers and notes of encouragement – we have needed both!

As soon as I have a good address for Jeremy, I will pass it along.

During the conclusion of my latest ladies’ bible study on prayer (excellent, by the way!) our family was blessed with some verses that have been especially applicable as we grapple with the weight of our circumstances. I share them with you for your encouragement and so you have a little idea of the great hope and joy we have been basking in.

“He is the rock, His work is perfect, for all His ways are justice, a God of truth and without injustice; righteous and upright is He.” (Deuteronomy 32:4) “No king is saved by the multitude of an army (we have to laugh because Jeremy is deploying to an Army unit!) a mighty man is not delivered by great strength. A horse (or Hummer, or body armor, or weapon, or armored vehicle) is a vain hope for safety; neither shall it deliver any by its’ great strength. Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him, on those who hope in His mercy, to deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine. Our soul waits for the Lord; He is our help and our shield. For our hearts shall rejoice in Him, because we have trusted in His holy name.” (Psalm 33:16-21

Additionally, Jeremy’s chaplain shared Psalm 91 with the entire group. . .another good passage.
