This update comes much nearer the middle of the month than the beginning…….however, we have had full schedules and full hearts!
February was comprised of several things……..
* The second stage of our RV repairs
* A trip to North Georgia to visit with some of our Tribe, rekindle some relationships from days passed, and an impromtu college visit with Chloe to Truett McConnell University
* Time in Florida where I (Casey) had the honor of speaking at a women’s retreat…then we were able to snag a few days of vacation
These first couple of weeks of March have been full of appointments and lists as we are in the final stretch before we hit the road. Caroline’s procedure went well last week and she has recovered much easier than we were expecting. Her next orthodontist appointment is this week and then we will be all set until her next check up in late May. Our lists are long this week as we go back through all of our mental checklists to make sure we are prepared for our 2023 travel season…….which starts FRIDAY!!!
It’s ended up that we’ve been home in South Georgia for about 4 months this time. It was never in the original plan to “sit still” for this long. In some ways, we’ve struggled to not feel “bogged” down in the waiting as we’ve worked to accomplish all of the things that we’ve needed to accomplish during our time at home.
Yet over and over again, we have been reminded of the Lord’s sovereignty and His goodness and faithfulness to us. It has been quite clear and evident that the Lord’s timing is always best. In this season of waiting, we’ve seen Him do some crazy big things for our 2023 ministry season. We’ve seen Him answer some deeply personal prayers. We’ve soaked in some really sweet time with friends and family…….time that will fill our tanks for the coming months. And we’ve been overwhelmed by unexpected blessings!
This season of waiting and “sitting” has reminded me of our choice and declaration to put our “YES” on the table and let God do with it whatever He will!
So with excited hearts, we invite you to step into our journey and come along with us as we adventure across America again in 2023! We have big plans to make our way all over the country as well as into Canada this year!
With grateful hearts as we look ahead,
Kevin and Casey
