The providence of God and a garage sale...

"God governs in the affairs of men." A great man once said. And I believe that even more after the garage sale yesterday.

We had been planning this event for some time, in hopes of selling some of our un-needed items before we head to Malawi. There was some discussion about a good date, and we finally decided on yesterday, March 29th. As we cleaned out and priced items and prepared for the sale, we got a little nervous when predicted thunderstorms for the weekend. It was definitely a test of faith as we continued to prepare and pray that the weather would be nice.

To make a long story short, we woke up Saturday morning to a little bit of mist and a gray sky, but we proceeded to put our things out, and ended up having a WONDERFUL day. We had a pretty steady stream of people all day and when we tallyed up our totals at the end of the day, everything (including the money my family made from it) totaled $529. Sorry Crystal, we have more junkaholics where we live:) Personally, Victor and I made about $230. What a blessing!

Today (Sunday) Victor spoke at Fredericksburg Chirstian Fellowship on his call to Malawi. We had a wonderful reception there, and it was a wonderful time.

Tomorrow, we head out for Florida. My family will be coming with us, and helping us move. The time has gone by so quickly, and it's hard to believe we're already on our way to Florida. You probably won't hear from me again until later in the week.

So... until then.
