A Prayer Request

(photo uploaded to Flickr by gerlos)

For those of you who might not already know, my family is taking a huge step of faith and leaving Thunder Bay, ON for California. You can read more about that move here.

We are leaving Canada this Friday, June 25 and planning on arriving in California on June 30. We thought we had secured housing. We were simply waiting for a lease agreement to sign. This morning, I received a phone call from the landlord stating that his wife no longer wants to rent the house out… Yep, you read that correctly… no house… I’d like to type some choice words, but this is a children’s ministry blog…

Anyway, I’m asking for those of you in the Elemental CM community to please pray for our family. This move, alone, is stressful. Now with this rental falling through after talking with the landlord for a week, our stress is multiplied. Please pray that we find someplace to rent and soon. Please pray that we have peace in the midst of this.

If any of you have any connection in the San Francisco East Bay (preferably the Concord area) or know of anyone who might have connections, please email me at henry(at)zonios(dot)org.

We rest in the fact that we know this move IS what God wants. It’s the “adventures” on this Wild Goose Chase that are challenging! Thanks for your prayers.

    Praying and trusting Henry. I just know God has a plan – He always does! If you detour through Virginia, you're welcome to stay with us for a while!

      Thanks for the offer Theresa, but I think VA is in the wrong direction ;)
