Thanks for joining us on our adventures as we build a non-profit disaster relief ministry. We are building a mobile soup kitchen and church on wheels, you could say. We have sold just about everything we own including our house in order to follow the mission we feel God has called our family to.
(Our Mission:) The Fellowship of the Believers
42 They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. 43 Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. 44 All the believers were together and had everything in common. 45 They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. 46 Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, 47 praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved. Acts 2:42-47
We know that sounds pretty crazy. We would think so too if it were not for all of the miracles, green lights, and open doors we have received along the way. There have been a million of these moments. For a long time I just wrote them into my journals.
You see, I feel it is so important to journal the many blessings that I receive and the prayers on my heart as well. Why? Well, for me it is a way I stay connected and in tune to conversations with my Father. I love it so much that I started a group for women at my church to journal our faith walks together. Mostly we talk about what we wrote during the previous weeks, drink a lot of coffee and eat “friendship frittatas”! So, for a long time our church family kept asking me to “PLEASE Write these miracles where everyone can see them”. Thus, this blog was born!

During the process of selling our home we received a generous donation from a complete stranger. She gave us her RV to live in so that we could get our mission mobile! We have spent the past nine months waiting for this baby to be renovated! The RV is almost but not quite complete. She is a miracle all on her own! Besides being donated, she has had the hands, prayers, finances, sweat, and tears of so many people we know and love to help her to be created. I mean, if we didn’t decide to call her Pearl, we might have had to name her with the first letter of each of their names… It would look something like this: Avltcdjpjbmbppnlkalqwytweopbxgrpdgtheyakapouy… Ummm I lost track..I am sure I am forgetting some letters. 🙂 So we call her Pearl
So, here we are ready to move into our new home and get on the road to help feed people in areas that are in need of disaster relief assistance. More than likely we will not be first responders but more like second or third string. We have a great compassion in our hearts towards the reality that often after the first responders are gone and the news cameras, that most people move on and forget that these folks are still struggling to rebuild and move forward.
Our family has been dreaming of this for a few years and everything is now coming into fruition. All along the way we have seen miracle after miracle and witnessed God’s provision over his plan as well as many learning and growing lessons. We can see how God,in his goodness has been preparing our way. People ask me everyday to share these stories with them and provide a place were they can keep up with the going ons as we progress towards our goals, so here it is. To me, This blog is a love story. A snapshot of the moments I treasure each day, with my family, getting to know God a little more and growing closer to him each day.
