Dawn & Dave with the San Diego Harbor in the background
Dawn & Dave tired, but all smiles as we move into our new home

Our house hunting saga has come to an end as we found a wonderful house that the Lord provided for us. Yesterday we started moving in! It’s such a relief to have a place to call our home.
In many ways this is just the beginning. The launching of our ministry on the San Diego – Tijuana border. Something we’ve dreamed about for a long time. Praise the Lord for bringing it to fruition.
My legs and back are sore from all the lifting and carrying our belongings up and down the stairs. At times like this I wish we lived in a smaller home, and had less stuff. Yet, I know that the Lord is in the middle of all of this. He is leading, guiding and directing. We look to him. Our prayer is, “Lord, please use us to be salt and light in our neighborhood and the surrounding area. O that many would bend the knee and give their life to Christ.”
I’m bushed from all the physical labor. All the change has made it extremely difficult to get a chance to write. So here it is 11 PM on Saturday night, and I’m carving out a little time. God is good.
On a sadder note, I wanted to let all those who have been following know that Kim Anderson’s memorial service was held today. I feel bad for the family. I saw some of their notes on Facebook, and it’s sounds like it was a wonderful service, but so much heart ache and pain in a short period of time. I was really hoping the Lord would heal Kim. I know ultimately she is in a better place with her savior, but it’s hard on those that love her.
I pray the Lord’s presence will be felt as the family grieves for the passing of Kim. She was a wonderful woman. The Lord used her in the life of my children and countless others.
In His Grip, Dave

    So glad you can settle in now and recuperate from the move! I was brought to tears when I read about Mrs. Anderson’s death. It makes our God even bigger because her family has had more than any one should have to deal with. Blessings!

      Thanks for your encouragement. We are glad to have a place to lay our head.
      It’s sad that the Anderson’s have been through so much – continue to hold them up in prayer

    Funny, yesterday John spent a good part of the day helping his brother move. Meanwhile Gina, Maria and I were helping clean the condo of a widow that we know so that her grand nephew can move in which involved a lot of packing things in boxes! What a blessing that you were able to find what you were looking for in a house. Yes, this is a beginning. Fitting that it would start as the school year starts. A time that folks tend to start new learning but enjoy routine. May God work to bring many who may be taught of his love in both words and deeds.

      Thank you – we stayed in our new place for the first time last night. It’s so good to have a place to lay our head and minister out of.
