Well, our time on the road is coming to an end --- for now. Steve and I are going to stay put in the Toledo area for the time being. I have an internship at Westgate Chapel, which I am very excited about, that will begin August 1 and run through November. We were going to head to Wyoming for a rally, but we have important things like finding me a car, finding a place to live, getting utilities and the like set up, etc. to worry about - - not to mention the $1,000 it will take in fuel to get us there and back. YIKES!!!! So, it just made good economic sense to stay here until after I finish up at Westgate. Plus, we get to head to our cottage in northern Michigan to spend the 4th with my extended family on my dad's side. That's always a good time and we are looking forward to that.
After my internship is finished, we will be heading south to resume an adult lifestyle - - meaning, I go back to work!!!! I am finishing my seminary studies and looking forward to beginning my second career. I will be working on my resume and sending that out while here in Toledo, focusing on Charlotte, Hilton Head and the Ocala areas for permanent employment, but who knows what God has in store for us. We just put it in His hands and pray.
Thanks, everyone, for your well wishes and comments on our website. It was fun to do and served two purposes - - it kept you up-to-date on where we were and what we were doing, plus it also served as a permanent record of our trip for us. We had an absolutely wonderful time and highly recommend it to everyone. We were truly blessed to be able to spend two years on the road and see this beautiful country. And, who knows. It may not be over. We may find a traveling ministry in our future and if that's the case, you will be the first (or close to the first) to know!
Take care and for most of you -- we will see you soon!
Steve and Lauren
