All Packed and Ready to Go

June 29, 2010

Today was the big day – our container came and we packed it full. We had an amazing crew of helpers. You see most of those who helped in the picture, but there were some who didn’t get in. Most of them are from staff of Calvary Chapel of Siegen – a wonderful group of brothers and sisters in Jesus who really love God and love His people like they should. Many of these same people helped us unload a container at that same house seven years ago. We’re going to miss working with these great men and women of God, whom He is really using to build something special in Siegen, in Germany, and in Europe.

It was a lot of work, but they did it all with a cheerful heart. They canceled normal staff meeting to come and help, and Pastor Alex even joked that this was the most productive staff meeting they ever had! And the work was done fast. That whole container was loaded in well less than 2 hours. I didn’t think that would happen, but it did.

As for Inga-Lill and myself, we are just happy that it is over. All our “stuff” is packed and on the way to Santa Barbara. There is a real sense of relief and freedom in having that hard job done. Thank You, Jesus!

Thank You Jesus for strengthening us through this big job.

Thank You Jesus for Jonathan and Karen who worked so hard to make this move happen.

Thank You Jesus that You brought so many wonderful people to us here in Siegen.

Thank You Jesus for all that You have ahead for us in Santa Barbara.

Thank You Jesus that You and Your work for us on the cross is bigger and better than anything and everything. Thank You that all that “stuff” of ours in a container is just that – “stuff.”

    The picture reminds me of what you said when you were here last time; you are not “leaving” them, they are “sending” you. Our thanks to all of them, and to God for bringing your family to CCSB.

    Congratulations! Moving is hard except for knowing God is making the way. I like the verse about Abraham ‘going without knowing’. Life is an adventure in the Lord! Eric and I are enroute to Green Bay , WI for family reunion and the 4th of July. We will miss welcoming you on your first Sunday in SB but look forward to many Sundays to come!

  4. What an amazing team !!!
