6 days to go!

It is time for the Bee family to head on an adventure! God has called us to go to Kenya and we leave June 4th. … about 6 days till go time!  We appreciate your prayers and support during this time as we transition and get settled into the children’s ministry.

Our blog that we will try to keep up with:
Our U.S. address: 13461 Stone Dr. Bristol, VA 24202 (we know there is a different address that you got on the magnets we sent out but we had to change it from SC because of all of the paperwork it would take to change 501(c) (3) to a different state.)
Our Kenyan address: GOGCC PO BOX 141 Kaptagat, Kenya - East Africa

Everything is so busy right now as we try to wrap things up in the US. We praise the Lord for answered prayers and how He has provided for this move! We love you and keep in touch! David, Laurel, Lily and Levi Cheromei (Bees in Kenya!)

Attacked but not defeated.

The devil is hard at us now that the days are drawing near for our move to Kenya! Wow. Today especially we have felt it as it seems that the devil does not like it when the Lord is praised! When God prevails through the impossible the devil likes to see how to get us from another angle. To bring us down when we were just praising and thanking God a minute ago. Been feeling like Job today and just remembering to praise God through these storms. To thank Him for how He is still working on our behalf. How the angels are watching over us when all the demons want to attack us and bring us down! We will keep on trusting and praising the Lord even when all we want to do just give up because it seems too hard. It is more IMPORTANT to live out God's purpose for our lives than to try to live an easy carefree life that does not have any challenges. If you don't feel attacked or challenged recently you may not be bothering the devil because you are not standing up for Jesus and shouting aloud all HE has done for you! Just a thought... take it or leave it.

Please keep us in your prayers as we prepare for our adventures and mission in Kenya! We thank you for how you have supported us and given us encouragement! Much love from our family to yours.

God is flexing His muscles

I heard a sermon recently about how God likes to show up in big ways when things seem impossible. How He loves to flex His muscles and show that He has control of the situation when it seems like nothing will go as planned. God has been working on my TRUST in Him. He has asked me countless times lately to just TRUST.

Trust that He has good plans for our move to Kenya.
Trust that everything will work out and the house will be sold.
Trust that He will protect us no matter where we go.
Trust in His provision to pay off all of these bills before we move.
Trust to sell our vehicles.
Trust in Him at all time, in everything no matter how big or small. To stop trying to do things on my own. Spend time in His Word and He will be able to give me wisdom and encouragement!

This verse has encouraged me lately: "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:5-6

Thank you God for flexing your muscles and showing up in AWESOME ways!  Praise God with us... our 2 cars our sold, our house is taken care of, we are moving forward and trusting.
