We made it to Costa Rica!

Well we made it!! We spent our first day unpacking our bags and walking around with our big brother and sister from the language school. We have no internet service in our house so I am writing from the Dixons apartment. We will do our best to keep you all informed about our journey. God is always good. He's faithful and He knows what He's doing. More to come soon.

He has a plan!!

It's coming fast. In less than two weeks we will be in Costa Rica. We are still frantically packing and trying to get ready to leave. I have a half day at work tomorrow and then I am done at the Gas Company possibly forever. At times it seems crazy that God would keep me there so long only to move me. At other times it makes me stand in awe of how He orchestrates our lives. There is no other way that I could have grown in the ways I have these last eight years. I have been shown so much about myself, true ministry, evangelism, and perseverance. I have been truly blessed with this job.
I know that we are in an unsettled transition phase right now. I can feel myself slipping into old habits and patterns of life due to the stress that I'm under. Erin, at times, seems on edge and the kids are pretty cranky and a little irregular in their activity. It is odd feeling so rushed and so stressed but knowing that God is conducting the choir of our lives right now. When I stop to think I keep going back to His great faithfulness and goodness. He knows what He's doing. He knows how we feel and how we'll react. It's so comforting to know that no matter how fast the world spins around us, He is never moved or changed by it. He has a plan!!
