A Happy Thanksgiving Note, a little early. | CIM Missions Update Fall 2016

Blessings to you, dear friend!

In a season where we are infiltrated with being busy, doing more, needing more... We have been able to take a weekend away together, just the two of us, and celebrate our 8 years of Marriage! We went to Two Harbors, MN, where we were married on the shore of Lake Superior in September of 2008. We praise our God for His goodness and richness in our lives! What a blessing it has been to retreat and rejuvenate our hearts. Thank you to all of you who have been standing with us solidly in this Native American ministry. It isn't easy, that's for sure! We have a hard time communicating with our fellow missionaries, we find it difficult to find the right ways to grow deeper with the Mokahum students, and we struggle with the systems that our friends are facing each day, cycling through poverty and "deserving things" generation by generation. But you know what? It's beautiful. Because God has called us to this place where we are building up the CHURCH among Native Americans. Little seeds, big waters, it is growing the church each day. Thank YOU for your gifts to us. 

Happy Thanksgiving, 
Tim, Amy, and the kids

p.s.
I know it's not the end of November yet, but I'm entering into this beautiful season of giving thanks to our God and King for His marvelous gifts for us all. I'm not ashamed to be thankful now, too :)

What it feels like to parent on a daily basis, completely exhausted.  Yet, still determined to get through the day. 

Hope you get a kick out of this as much as I did. :) Laughing out loud over here.

Celebrating 8 years | Marriage

Tim and I were blessed with a lovely weekend away on the North Shore, back to where it all began. Here is a photo from one of our days up there. We hiked at Tettegouche State Park, and couldn't have asked for better weather or fall colors!


Waiting on this place, Praising our KING

Well, rumor's are true: Tim and I are buying a home. We found just the right place for our needs and wants, and are now waiting to close on the property in the next couple of weeks. So, it is not finalized yet, and it is not OURS yet... but we are trusting in God for this to come through if that is His will for our family.

Guys, this place is SO great and really what we dream of. It's a foreclosure, and needs quite a bit of work, but is a newer home and we can't wait to get our Tim's hands dirty. :) He has some excellent strength, motivation, and skills. We're grateful for the community we have up here and around within family and friends that are willing to help us make this house a home. We'll be putting in flooring, cabinets and appliances as soon as we can after closing on the home. We may be living in a disheveled place for a little while, but are very much looking forward to putting these tough times on the memory block as "the way it used to be.&qu…
