yay update

sorry i haven't been able to keep one on one contact we finally got some email service down here that actually works so now i can keep in contact. But still find my time lacking to get on regularly. But yes the big day is the 24th and things are a green light, so please keep praying for us. And i hear that the church has moved, sounds like attendance dropped a little. BTW i asked sandals for a little help/support and they basically told me to go fly a kite lol. But just another message from the lord saying "you depend on me not on man".. Which is the best way to go about it, because i have a great God story for you.
Well you know that me and Jenny got a pair of rings donated to us. Nothing fancy, but it was the green light from God to get married. Well when i came back this last spring, i picked up a little engagement ring, also silver nothing fancy i think i spent $50 on it because i didn't have any money to purchase anything super nice. Well last week, jenny's engagement ring broke, and she was to scarred to tell me. But God was already on the job, he had spoken to the same couple that gave us the silver rings and called the wife, and asked her to give up her real set of wedding rings, not the silver, but her gold and diamond set.Now they didnt know that her ring broke and neither did i. But as i received the news about the ring breaking God provided the new set, as a surprise for jenny when we get married. Now that's how God provides, now i share that to say this. That although i doubt, and sometimes feel like i dont have as much as most missionaries do here at the orphanage, I know that God, Jesus, and the holy spirit are with me. Its a good reminder for all of us that God knows and cares. And loves us beyond all measure. But for anyone to personally experience Gods love and blessing, we need to submit in all our ways. And little by little God is teaching me to submit and lean on his understanding not my own. So i hope that lifted your spirits up a little and feel free to share that with your group. You can add and take out as you please. I know i am not the best writer in the world. and that's mainly why i dont write so often
but i miss yall and love you
