ACTS 16:9,10: And during the night a vision appeared to Paul: a certain Mac‧e‧do′ni‧an man was standing and entreating him and saying: “Step over into Mac‧e‧do′ni‧a and help us.” Now as soon as he had seen the vision, we sought to go forth into Mac‧e‧do′ni‧a, drawing the conclusion that God had summoned us to declare the good news to them.

Homeless But Happy

   What can I say, I never cease to be amazed by Jehovah's blessings! When he gives, he does so very generously and it always surpasses our expectations.
   Just a few weeks ago we owned a fully furnished house. Within the span of a week we sold everything. Yes, ONE WEEK! We were especially surprised that our house went under contract in only 4 days!!! Given the housing market here in Central Florida we were expecting a prolonged time to sell but thankfully that is no worry now. Several friends in the congregation were able to buy or take furniture and household goods off of our hands. What we didn't sell went to Goodwill and the rest went into to storage ( where did we get all this STUFF? ).  We closed on the house this past Friday and now we are in the clear...homeless and jobless but we couldn't be happier!
   With our few remaining days we are kicking off the "Windhams 2012 Farewell Tour", making the rounds visiting with the friends here before we leave. We received a very warm send off from both Lake Mary English and Longwood Spanish, the two congregations we have been serving with here. Our last few days we'll spend with my family, gotta show Mom and Dad some love before we go!
   So we leave for Mexico this Saturday and expect to arrive sometime on Friday morning. We are taking our time driving across the SW of the country. We have never been west and are looking to stop to take in some sights along the way. Next stop, Nogales, Sonora....Mexico!
