Thank you all for your continued prayers. God is answering – it is so obvious to us. Everything went exceptionally well with our move here on July 5. Most of our boxes are now empty!! Many thanks to those in Murphy and Greensboro for your time and labor in helping us accomplish this MAJOR task.
We’re so very encouraged and thankful for the responses of many of you who are considering (relocating here or joining with us locally) being part of our Core Team. Three families have already visited us here and others are scheduled to come for a visit before September. We would LOVE to have a Core Team in place before Thanksgiving. Our desire is for the entire Core Team to attend a “boot camp” together in preparation for the plant. Boot camp is so valuable. It’s not only a great strategizing and planning time; but it encourages cohesion and unity among the Core Team.
