Spring still feels months away as I write this at the end of yet another snow-filled, cold, wintry day. However, it could be worse. We could live in Boston. 🙂
We really did get our “quiet” week that we have needed for a month. Life was relatively back to normal around here and we can tell that things are more in the usual routine based on how our kids act! Our week ended with Brian and I being able to finally have a date lunch and celebrate Valentine’s Day alone. Our last date was before Christmas; this was really nice.
On the MRF front: In the apartment suite, tiles began going up in the bathroom, the walls are getting ready for paint, and all the trim work is done. The suite is booked in two weeks, so they are doing mostly finish work at this point. The final walls are being built to close up the duplex so that it’s officially two homes instead of one. Another work team offered to come up this coming Saturday, the 7th, so that will help push it along quickly.
On March 13, we have a big banquet for local pastors planned. Well, I use the term “we” loosely – it’s our board president who’s done all the organizing; we just need to show up! This will be a great opportunity for MRF to have its name put out there more in the area and for pastors to become much more aware of who we are and what we do. You can pray with us for a good turn out for this evening.
For BCM: the BCM World is published! You can read it here. This edition includes two fascinating articles on Sri Lanka (did you even know BCM existed in Sri Lanka??). There’s an article on what’s up in Italy and then I wrote a follow-up on the first article I wrote for BCM – all about In Step with the Master Teacher’s reach into Bangladesh.
At GBC: This month is my training day. I have LOTS to do to prepare for it. Pray with me for a good turn-out and that things would fall into place this month as far as details are concerned.
Here at Home: I am thankful for the opportunity offered by some of the neighbor girls to come down and help out in the house starting this week. I’m noticing that I’m just not able to do as much these days, so having a few extra hands to sweep a floor or play with the kids for an hour a day sounds wonderful.
We wish you a Happy March! Here’s hoping spring shows its beautiful face at some point this month…
