Yes, I know

I know - I've been absent from Blogger for awhile. I have reasons. Thanks to those who have missed me... :)
Because of our prolonged absence from our home in Mexico and no immediate medical release for Logan in the near future, we had to pack up our things and store them in Mexico until the time when we can return. We could not continue to pay the rent and utilities and not be living there.
Another factor in that decision was the fact that, if Logan stays stable, we will need to return to raise our Share Support for the next 3 years. If Logan can be released either from the medication completely (which doesn't look likely) or transferred to another specialist in Indiana, then we will begin raising our support this summer, likely stretching until some time in November.
So my Easter weekend was spent packing, cleaning, storing furniture, boxes, etc. You get the picture. We're SO thankful for the Stetlers who helped us tremendously with this huge task! Without them we would still be packing boxes...almost true!
We spent Easter Sunday at our Bible Methodist Church and with our people in Saltillo. It was a wonderful time. I will be back soon to post pictures.
I'm so glad my feet are on Christ, the Solid Rock during all these changes. We firmly believe God is in control and is using the events He's allowed into our lives to work out His will for us. Believe it without a doubt. We are thankful for His leading, His preventing, His allowing, His correcting.....He's in control and we're just doing our best to follow.
I hope your Easter weekend was good.
Love to all!

I appreciate your faith...May God continue to lead you in His perfect will! I am still praying for Logan's healing! I know that transition periods are not easy...I hope that everything works out. If you do come home...maybe you all could come visit at our church! We would love it!

Sorry you had to pack up your house but it sounds like you are in good spirits about it!
We will continue to keep you in our prayers!
By the way...we are in revival with your parents this week at our church! We are enjoying their ministry! (Your mom looks so young!) :)

Look at it this way - when you get back to Mexico and are able to UNpack, you can pretend it's Christmas...it might feel like all the old stuff is "new"! :-) At least, that is how I feel about just getting all my maternity clothes away and replacing them with my "skinny" clothes....smiles...

Hi, Melodie! Just wanted you to know you guys are thought of often. I don't know how many times I've wished I could just drive on over and visit with you. Hopefully we'll see you this summer. You all take care.
Love, wl.

Sorry you've had to pack up everything and leave Mexico; it's hard to understand everything and we may never; Hope to see you this summer!

Dare I get my hopes up that we might get to run into you sometime between summer and fall while you're here? Or will you be constantly on the road raising spport? Is there an itenerary or something so we can chase you around to a service somewhere in the midwest?

I miss you.
