Great Is Thy Faithfulness...

Okay, so I finished my first day of work at Fremont Community Church, and am working at getting us into this house over the Thanksgiving break:

I can't write much more now, but all I have to say is that GOD IS GOOD, and that His faithfulness has been incredible over this entire transition! I can't wait to see what He does next in our incredible journey! Thank you to everyone who has been praying for us! I'll let you know more as I get more time and information. But for now... it's off to bed!



The Saga Begins...

A long, long time ago... okay, maybe not that long ago... well, yesterday, to be exact... we finalized plans and I signed my contract with Fremont Community Church to begin working there THIS MONDAY!!! AAAAAUUUUGGGHHH!!!

So that means insane packing and cleaning and shopping and what-have-you-not to get everything together to find housing tomorrow and begin working on Monday. But... God has opened so many doors for this to happen so far, and He has been faithful each and every step of the way, so to Him be the glory! Just please continue to pray for us as we take this next step of faith, trusting in His provision to get us into a place and settled sometime during the Thanksgiving holiday. Whew!

I'll have more info and hopefully pics as we get things a little more settled, but if there are any of you in the Fremont / San Jose area that can give me a few pointers (I'm always good for a nice Cantonese style Chinese restaurant recommendation...) for the area, let me know.

At any rate, it's exciting - to know that we are in the center of God's will, and to know that He has placed us where we're going... God has been incredible over the past few years as I've watched Him grow and stretch us - I can't wait to see what He has in store for us in this next chapter of our lives! Please pray for us!

Thank you everyone - and as soon as we get settled, you'll be hearing from us again!

God bless,



Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!” (Mark 9:24, NKJV)

Tonight at The Well, Brad gave an incredible message about the things that would keep us from following God wholeheartedly. (If you don't go to the Well, it's worth subscribing to the Podcast. Just go to the link above and click on "well radio." And as I thought and prayed about it, I began to realize that there is so much that I need to do to get my life completely right with God. Not that I need to, though - just to clarify for those of you who are doing the "Losing My Religion" study with Shadd... It's just that as I desire to be closer to Him, the questions then remain:

1.) How much am I willing to really lay at His feet in surrender?

2.) How much do I really trust Him with all that I am?

3.) How much do I believe that He will really take care of my every need?

As life has seemed uncertain over the past weeks, my prayer is that God would continue to help my unbelief, allowing me to lay more and more of myself at the foot of the cross. What are the idols in my life? I think the biggest idol I struggle with is me. What a daily burden it is for me to lay myself down for the sake of the cross. Why do I do what I do? What are the fruits being borne?

Lord, I pray that you would be glorified in my life, my family, and all that I am. For those of you who have fallen victim to my struggle against me... forgive me. I love you all.
