And here I thought we would be without internet!!!! What was I thinking? Is there anyplace in the world without it anymore!

I know you have been wondering what is going on -- why the mystery -- questions with no answers! God has been working, and surprising us!

This past Tuesday we were taken a bit by surprise at our staff meeting. Turns out Mercy Response is going to do some "restructuring" and our "services are no longer needed." Like I said, we were a bit surprised but also knew God was opening a new door for us -- a new adventure -- a new chapter in our walk with Him.

These past few days have been filled with unfolding blessings, new horizons and uncertain details.

Many questions still remain unanswered but one thing we do know -- we are continuing in disaster ministry and will not be walking away from what God has called us to do.

We are currently taking some time off, time to put things together, time to spend with God and time to restructure ourselves. We have had offers from numerous relief efforts here, all begging us to stay and join forces with them. There is so much work to be done and so many relationships have formed -- and isn't God all about relationships?

Many things are in the works -- if you are one of the homeowners we have been helping -- know that we are NOT walking out on you! Your home WILL get done! Diane will see to that! Mercy Response is not closing their doors -- they are still working with teams and working on homes. They will be relocating their warehouse and taking a look at what the future holds -- as do all of us from time to time.

We are so thankful to God for always knowing just where He is leading us and His promise that He will direct us. When Monty and I stepped out in faith back in December of 2005 to start this disaster ministry we stood on those promises and remain standing on them today.

We are excited about the future -- we have great plans --we know where God is leading us and we know we will follow.

For all of you who have been praying for us and helping support us -- we are blessed beyond measure because of you! Just know that God has opened a wonderful door for us to continue in this ministry -- be sure and stay tuned as the final details are made -- as we have them you will have them!!!!

"The body of Christ coming together."

Until next time . . . be blessed and have a great Memorial weekend! Susan and Monty
