Special Delivery!

Jonathan went to the mailbox today and came back in with a very interesting envelope. It was hand addressed and didn't have a return address. Inside was a note that said "God is watching out for you...and so is your church family." There was a check for $100! It was a cashier's check so we have no clue who sent it to us! Again this gift was the exact amount of a tithe that we had put in the offering on Sunday! God is awesome isn't he? We are still in awe. He really has provided for us during these very difficult times. We just wish we could thank whoever sent that to us. Wow!

On another note, Jonathan interviewed for a job today. Not his dream job, but it would be better than a temp job or no job. It turns out that at the end of the interview, one of the people interviewing him had seen him in the Stud Muffin video at Southland and brought it up. That can't hurt with him getting the job, right?

He really is starting to enjoy his temp job. We just wish that he would be able to do this job permanently! We have to wait on God's timing...and we're trying to have patience with it.

I didn't know J had an interview today. Who was the interview with? Good for him! Wow about the check - how awesome is that? It's just simply amazing how provisions are made, isn't it?

Hey, thanks for the comment! I'm glad to see things are going well, despite the current economic situation. That's a cute little furball you've got, too (Dakota, that is, not Jonathon).

I don't know if we'll be in Japan permanently, but we'll definitely be here for a few years at least. I got a contract job that's renewable up to three years in Nagasaki, so we'll be there for the time being.

Feel free to do all the vicarious living you can handle. I'm trying to keep up with the blog and photos, so hopefully things will remain interesting.

Hi Abby,

I saw your link over at my blog and I came to "meet" you. I have enjoyed my visit, reading back over all your posts and I am in AWE of God's goodness shown to you through this time in your lives. Wow our God is GOOD!

I will say a prayer for Jonathan's job situation. I can't wait to see what God has in store for you guys next!

I'm so glad you stopped over so I could meet you & have the chance to read all of what God's being doing for you & your sweet hubby!

Hugs :-)
