Rise of the Home on Wheels


As some of you may know, our family has been seeking God’s will about our next steps as a family in serving God through Rise of the Home. We’ve been praying about how to proceed with our work given the increased demand for our time and need for mobility. As we’ve been traveling, things have become more and more difficult on our family going in and out of others’ homes. The lack of consistency in environment has been difficult on all of us, and so we’ve put it to prayer. At least for now, God is asking us to continue working on the road on a somewhat regular basis, and we’re trying to follow His lead.

I traveled to Ohio last week and, through an divinely interesting turn of events, made an offer on a large camper trailer. I was able to put down $2,000 on the purchase from donations we had received. It’s a very nice 2006 Gulf Stream Cavalier in virtually new condition. It will have a few small necessary repairs and a couple of things done to make it more adequate for daily living, but overall it’s a pretty amazing deal. In fact, it’s being purchased for about one-third to one-half of it’s market value. Praise God!

We’re still in the process of raising the money for the remainder of the purchase of the camper trailer and the vehicle we’re going to use to pull it, but know God is working all of that out. We’d love to have prayers as we pack, sort, and try to get our lives down into a small trailer. It’s not an impossible task, but it is nontheless challenging.

Thanks for continually lifting us up before the LORD as we serve Him. We’re excited about the steps of faith He’s asking us to take and the work He’s given us to do. To God alone be the glory for the things He has done.

“For we walk by faith, not by sight”

II Corinthians 5:7 NAS
