Jeremy and I just across the road from our house and a block through the woods!

Here is a picture of the church taken yesterday from our upstairs window. Jeremy’s office is the first window on the left, and we can see it from our upstairs hallway.

The sanctuary of the church, with the fellowship hall, Jeremy’s office, Sunday school and nursery rooms off to the right.

This is home sweet home, this picture taken before it snowed while we were here candidating.

One of my favorite windows in the house with some flowers one of our members brought to welcome us. This window looks out from our kitchen and dining room to the church.

These are the steps going upstairs to the bedrooms, with some of my favorite people being goofy on them (my children and some of the cousins)

And finally, one of the “coolest” parts of living here. . . SNOW, and clean enough to eat and spend hours sledding on!

I can’t say it enough: we serve a GOOD and merciful God! Jeremy’s first sermon yesterday went well, and many aspects of this move have been better than we could ask or think. We look back and see that God has been leading us here for a long time, and has been preparing this church and location for us. We could never have imagined this in a million years. God is perfect, even if things don’t seem perfect to me, HIS ways, in the end are always right, just, and better than anything my sinful heart and mind could have come up with on its’ own!

God is SO good. We have been enjoying your updates!

Have you ever read The Family Nobody Wanted by Helen Doss? It is a true story of a pastor and his wife and their 12 adopted children from all different races, in a time when races didn’t mix. The book starts around seminary and first church and follows them around the country. Reading your updates reminded me of it so I thought I would mention it, in case you have a few free moments here and there to read it. I read it when I was a teenager and recently read it aloud to the children. They loved it.

Love,
Cassie

The church looks so picturesque all covered in snow. I am a little jealous of the snow! So glad you are settling in well. I know you guys will be loved by everyone in the community!
