Rhoadarmer update 2-20

It's good to be home.  After spending 13 days on the road spending each night in a different location, and spending way too much time in the van bonding with our little children, we are finally home.  We had a wonderful trip to the NW.

Highlights of our trip:
~3 Open Houses with over 75 people in attendance (2 in Salem and 1 in Portland, OR)
~Visiting Clear Creek Community Church (Gresham, OR)
~Meeting with folks from Grace Church (Molalla, OR)
~Noah and Hannah's first trip to the Pacific Ocean
~Going to a wedding of a very dear friend and supporter (Seattle, WA)
~Countless other visits with many many people!

It's good to be home.  Thank you for your prayers as we traveled.  The Lord kept us safe from 2 deer, 1 rabbit and 4 snow storms.

Now that we're back there are many things coming up in the next couple of weeks we'd like to ask prayer for.

1)Our first IMPACT (VBS training ministry) meeting is tomorrow.  It's an information meeting and we hope there are many kids who would like to be part of this exciting ministry.

2) Homestead Bible Camp yearly Cajun Boils start soon.  We are raising money to redo some of the electricity in a 100+ yr old building.

3) We will be attending Ethnic Worker Summit in Phoenix, AZ  March 17-23 and need someone to watch and love our two beautiful children during that time.  This is a HUGE prayer request and weighs heavy upon our minds.  Our registrations were paid by a donor and we will be unable to take the children with us.

4) We will also attending the AMF Camping Conference in Nebraska March 26-29.  We are planning on taking the kids to this conference, which should make things a little interesting.

As you can see we have a busy month or so ahead of us.  Please pray for us and that we get the rest we need as well.

Thanks for all your encouragement and prayers!
