it’s all about community

such a beautiful, peaceful place to stay

The big question… why are we still stuck in San Diego? Friends have speculated that God is protecting us from something that would have happened on the road. Or that we needed to be here to help with the staff transition in the Foothills youth department. Or that we were never meant to leave, and God will open a door soon for us to somehow stay.

We may never know all the reasons, but one lesson has been hammered home:

Community is so important.

While we’ve been here, we’ve been uplifted and ministered to as we spent valuable time with friends and family, and have been so so blessed with a beautiful home in a peaceful neighborhood and even a spare car to use when we needed it. We’ve had opportunity to worship with our church family and to be useful to various ministries.

If we had broken down in any other location, it would have been a very different story.

All this to say – wherever we land, finding a church home and community will be priority one. And no matter where we go, we will always consider our Foothills Church community and our San Diego friends and family as our second home.

As the saying goes, no man is an island… we really don’t survive well without the love and support of family and friends.

Honestly, we can’t express how grateful we are to have been surrounded and supported by our San Diego community during this long waiting period. We hope we can be as much of a blessing to them as they are to us.


Ok, enough sentimentality! Moving on to the news of the day:

The RV engine has been reassembled, and is currently being reinstalled and tested. As a bonus, the mechanic has finally figured out how to repair our cab A/C and heater. (It stopped working last time we were in San Diego when they had to replace the compressor, but at the time, they couldn’t get ahold of the RV manufacturer to figure out where the master switch was. But now it’s HOT, so it will be awesome to be able to use it.) They’ve already taken out the dash, diagnosed the problem, and ordered parts which should be in soon.

The last Honda part is now scheduled to arrive August 5th. Once all the parts are here, the repair shouldn’t take more than a day.

So, it looks like we’ll have both vehicles back by mid-August (maybe?) and be leaving shortly thereafter. To avoid the heat, we plan to head up the coast all the way to Washington, then across through northern Idaho into Montana.

My next post will hopefully be from the road! Thanks for keeping up with us!
