MOVING

Well, I hate to say it, but we moved out of our cute little house in Helena this weekend. I do have pics, however all of my cords and stuff are all packed up somewhere. We are staying with my parents for a week until we move to Tulsa on the 3rd because the people who bought our house wanted to start moving in today, so right now we are shuffled from here to there and to there again. Anyway, I am just glad that we actually sold our house in 3 months in an economy like this. It just goes to show you that no matter what the circumstances, God will always take care of you. He wants us in Tulsa, so we trust him to take care of every detail and we know that he will. Sometimes I wish I could fast forward through the times of uncomfortable transition, but then I wouldn't realize how much our God cares for our every need and want. I know that Jeremy and I have nothing to worry about. I am sure that some people would say that we are crazy to move across the country, away from our home, our good jobs, and other material things, but we have learned to follow our hearts and the voice of God no matter what our head says. As we embark on a new year and new chapter in our lives, we know that God is with us every step of the way. We are so excited to be going to Tulsa to learn from the best, John and Martine Smithwick. Visit there websites: http://www.johnsmithwick.com/ or http://www.globalventures.tv/ . If anyone out there is curious about the mission field, or fills a tug on there heart every time you see a person in need, please take a look and see what they/we are all about.

Blake is home!!

My little brother Blake is home from Oklahoma for Christmas and I could not be happier!!! We have missed him so much. He will be home until we move out to Oklahoma on the 3rd.
I guess you all should know that we have finally sold the house! We are scheduled to close on Monday night, so everyone pray that everything goes smoothly. They want to move in the day after Christmas, so that means we have to be out by Wednesday! Ahhhh, so hectic!
I am also DONE with school and I am now officially a graduate!! I am so happy about that, I can actually feel the stress leave me! I think I will finally feel at ease after the holidays and when we are settled in Tulsa. So much to be excited about I cant express how I feel. Just to let everyone know, never doubt GOD, he will ALWAYS take care of you and keep his promises.

House Update!

Well, there is a good chance that God has sent us the buyer for our house!! The guy made an offer last night, but he's going to be out of town for the weekend, so it gives us until Monday to think it over. We are so excited about this, but to tell you the truth I wish we could take it with us. I know we've only been here a year, but it has been perfect! This is me and Jeremy's first home and we thought we would stay here until we grew out of it in 5-10 years. It's okay though, I know that this is God's plan for us and I know that he will reward us for putting him first and following his will. If the chance ever comes for us to move back to the Birmingham area, we will more than likely move back to Helena. We love it here and it is such a great town to raise a family.

Blindfolded Election

Checkout this video that my friend Holly in Oklahoma made. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VHoPowgQlPY. It is about the election. When will we stop letting the media form our opinions for us? When you vote next Tuesday, do what your heart tells you. Can you really vote for someone who has terriorist for friends??

Poor Tigers!!


So, I am really starting to feel bad for our Auburn Tigers. It hurt really bad the first two times they lost, but now we are used to it. I love them, but they are soooo sad this year! I wonder why both teams in the state cant be good at the same time, its either one or the other! Oh well, maybe they can redeem themselves next year.

House Update

Okay, so we got an offer on the house! However, it was 20,000 less than what we owe on the house! Can you believe it? Anyway, we did a counter offer, but she said she would have to think about it for a while. Jeremy and I have a really good feeling about this girl and her Realtor told us that she still really loves our house and she doesn't even want to look at anything else right now. Everyone just keep us in your prayers because we would really like to close by next month. I know that God is taking care of this situation and we trust him. I just get a little anxious sometimes.

House Update


I finally showed the house for the first time last Thursday! The guy seemed pretty interested and said he was going to see what he could get approved for! Hopefully, he will call back soon so we can get this ball rolling. We've had some others call about it, but they have'nt come out and look at it. I know that if we can just get them in the house, we will sell it in no time. We are trusting God that he is taking care of our every need so that we can do what he has called us to do.

War Eagle!

Football season is finally here again and not a moment to soon! I am pumped, I love football season and the weather that comes with it. I can't wait to get down to some Auburn games this year, especially since they have a really good home schedule. I love to see that eagle soar, it gives me chills! Haha, I know all the bama fans think it's dumb, but it is great! Anywho, to bad we will be in the car on the way to Tulsa most of Saturday, we are leaving at 3:30 am!!

Tulsa for the weekend

We are going to Tulsa for the weekend! My little brother is moving out there to intern with JSMI, the same ministry that Jeremy and I are moving out there for. Anyway, we are going to look at the duplex that we will be living in and meeting with Bro. John and Mrs. Martine to get some more details about our move in January! I will share pictures when we get back home. Everybody say a little prayer that lots of people want to look at our house when we get back!

Anybody want to buy a house in Helena?

Well, I hate to say it but we are selling our cute little house in Helena. We are planning to move to Tulsa, OK in January. We decided to go ahead and put the house on the market now so that we could prepare for the BIG move. I hate to leave this place though. Jeremy and I are moving to Tulsa to work with the missionaries that we went to Peru with this summer. We had been praying for an opportunity, and we believe this is the door that God has opened for us. It is a great house, I just hope someone falls in love with it like we did when we saw it for the first time.

Beach Trip!

Here are a few pictures from our beach trip! We had a great time even though it rained a couple of days. Oh how I LOVE it there! Oh yeah, if any of you guys go to Panama City you have to try Hunt's seafood. It is a little hole in the wall, and a little rough around the edges, but worth it!


This is what we saw most of the time, Rain!



Me and my hubby!

Sorry Blake, this is the only picture I had! haha

More Pics from Peru

These are a few more pictures that I thought were cute from Peru. The last day we were there we went to a burger king type resturant called "Bembos" funny name, right? They served the biggest burgers I have ever seen and they weren't beef. They were Lamburgers! Anyway, we had a great time!

Peru!!

We are back from our mission trip! We had a great time and we miss it so very much. It was so bitter sweet leaving because we were ready to get home, but we didn't want to leave Peru. This trip has changed me and Jeremy's lives forever. We believe that this purpose is worth giving our lives to. We are praying and believing that God will show us what steps to take next. Going to a third world country or a developing nation will change your life. You don't realize how much you have until you see how they live everyday. I cant put into words how much the mission field feels like home to me and Jeremy. The final count for Peru is:
26,749 salvations and 569 miracles!




This is a picture of the kids crusade. 8,000 people were there.
That is a South American record!!
