enough is Enough

~~ We didn’t fall off the planet!! Although you probably thought that based on the lack of posting & updating here. Sorry friends. — We’re still in the USA, & we’ve been on the road a lot. Like every, single, week. LOTS of driving. LOTS of miles. And LOTS of great new friends & new team members too!! It’s a joy & privilege to share our story & our journey with people every week! But between the epic, 6week long #k6eastcoastadventure in our trusty minivan, homeschooling 4 kids & all of the chaotic moments of #movingnotmoving that seem to come with our time in America… we have been neglecting this blog. *sigh* Thanks for your understanding & especially for your constant prayers that keep us trucking along on these long road trips! Anyway, in an effort to get back to this – we not only have today’s thoughts, but also a new newsletter coming in another couple days. Be sure to sign up at the bottom of this post. 🙂 ~~

After an encouraging & somewhat challenging phone call with one of our directors/mentors yesterday, I had another good jolt upon opening my email this am. Try drinking your coffee, thinking about the huge mountain in front of you, feeling you can climb it well – but only if you continue on in the ever so careful, slow & steady pace that has so far kept you from falling off the cliff… Then try reading the following (from yet another mentor on our journey) & see if you aren’t ALSO challenged to get up & get going – faster, stronger & with deeper drive & purpose to just “Get ‘er done!”… So grateful for the mentors that Father has given us. Without them I might still be in bed sleeping, instead of working diligently to reach the flag at the top of the mountain!! There is much to do if we are going to get back HOME to our precious China before the end of the year… More coffee please!
The fulfillment of desire is conditional on the intensity of the desire to fulfill it. When we want something enough, we will move heaven and earth to obtain it. We’re all guilty of saying, “I don’t have enough time” or “I don’t have enough money.” {That simple modifier, enough, makes all the difference.} The truth is, we seem to find the time and the money to do or buy what we really, really want.
 
“Before we can be filled with the HS, the desire to be filled must be all-consuming. It must be for the time the biggest thing in the life, so acute, so intrusive as to crowd out everything else. The degree of fullness in any life accords perfectly with the intensity of true desire. We have as much of Father as we actually want.” -A.W.Tozer

misty rainforest Peaks

wuzhi-mountainThis is the peak that rises from the rainforest, through the mist, just outside of Wuzhishan City, Hainan – where we plan to live. We’re not certain what type of housing we will have, or if we will actually be able to live in the cit of Wuzhishan or somewhere else nearby instead. That’s just the nature of life as an expat most of the time. We are used to ‘going with the flow’ & in China, the flow can be very slow moving & somewhat unpredicWuzhi_Mountain_-_Topographical_maptable at times. What we do know is that once we are finished with out language studies, this is the general area that we will be moving to. Please pray that we will find favor with the city officials when it comes time to begin a new business there. Exciting times friends! We can’t wait to share it all with you as the journey continues…

“”O LORD, God of my master,” he prayed. “Give me success and show kindness to my master, Abraham. Help me to accomplish the purpose of my journey.” ~Genisis 24:12

“But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and manifests through us the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place.” ~2 Corinthians 2:14

hainan maWuzhi Mountain (Chinese: 五指

; pinyin:Wǔzhǐ Shān; literally: “Five Finger Mountain”) is the highest mountain in Hainan, China, towering 1,840 metres (6,040 ft) above the center of Hainan Island. The surrounding areas of Wuzhi Mountain are inhabited mainly by the Li ethnic group.

Various Li myths concern the name for the mountain in the mist (Five Finger Mountain) and its formation. The overall shape extends like the five digits of a hand. Tradition has it that this is the hand of Sakyamuni and that the legendary Monkey King cannot escape from its control. One legend has it that the five mountain peaks are the fossilized fingers of a dead Li clan chief. Another tale is that the five peaks are dedicated to the five most powerful Li gods. Numerous historical poems have also been written about the mountain, the most famous of all by the Hainan writer, Qiujun.

New Year, New States… New Tires?

We have been a bit busy friends.I’m sure you can tell by the lack of postings here. Sorry!!

We all enjoyed exploring the beautiful Grand Canyon in between our Arizona meetings. (Feb. 2015)

Since October we have survived our first Thanksgiving & Christmas as a family of six, 3-4 broken bones with AnnaBelle (more on ‘Brittle Bone Disease’ another day) & officially racked up over 17,000 miles (across 3 states) with all 6 bodies crammed into our amazing (ever faithful) minivan! I’m writing from Las Vegas today & preparing to send out our next NEWSLETTER. We set out on the road from California over 5 weeks ago. We’ve spent 4 weeks in Nevada, taken a week long drive through Arizona, & we’ve been back in LV for almost a week with at least 1 more to go… for a total of 6 weeks, 11 Community meetings & over 7 meetings with individuals – and now I’m wondering if it’s time for new tires!?!?

Below is a fun video we made to thank all of you for your love & support – after you watch it, be sure to click the link & update your email with us. Then watch for our eNews to come very soon!

Back in the US of A!

Greetings from sunny Roseville, CA! Summer went by fast for the six of us. Everything since May has been a blur. We started with a whirlwind 8 day pack/move back to America, where we hit the ground fast & furious with a week of meetings just 2 days after arrival! Next up was a family cross-country drive to Missouri for a month of strategic training with leadership. Then Joy & I flew back to China in July to pick up our precious Annabelle. (The {5k+1} has finally become the new {6k}!!!) Once back in California, we started our crazy traveling/speaking schedule the next week. Aug. & Sept. have been such a busy & blessed time full of meetings where we get to reconnect with old friends & meet new ones. Father always encourages us through all of you on this journey. We’re excited to see & introduce you to our little Princess Belle before we return to our home in China!!

We will continue traveling & sharing all over the USA for about a year. Our goal is to have our budget at 100% & be ready to return to China by Fall 2014. If you would like to have us speak at your meeting (small or large) please send us an email.

Don’t forget to check out our {prayer} page!

Check our speaking schedule & contact us to book a date!
