Stories in the Missional Journey of Bruce & Deborah Crowe

Container Update!

Autumn, our wonderful office manager at Cypress informed me today that they’ve spotted our container floating in the Atlantic! June 29th it was in Kingston, Jamaica, now heading toward the port in Odessa. The new arrival date has been pushed to August 20… which is the exact date the Perhai’s (apartment we are renting) return… co-incidence everything could come together at the same time?? We can’t wait to sleep in our own bed! home_botm-img.jpg

In every thing give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” 1 Thes 5:18

PS our bathrooms are functional at the house, and oven installed… almost there!!

    I’ve learned having a Plan “B” is never a safe thing if you are going to follow Jesus. You guys have thrown yourselves out their to taste and see that the Lord is good. He really comes through. Though at times He seems late, He knows just what He is doing. Without being willing to experience discomfort and even suffering, we can never have the chance to see Him come to the rescue, or find out that He truly delights to do so!
    We love you guys,
    In Christ, Bonnie

    Bruce and Deb,
    God has a sense of humor in that He has ways of helping us learn to depend totally on Him. Your container being where it is is no accident and the arrival date is right on time. As the house comes along you will be ready for the contents to arrive upon completion. May you cling to the Lord for His guidence in all things.

    Your house looks like it is coming along pretty well, knowing the working schedule there. Tea times and all.

    Count it all joy that God has you where He has you doing what you are doing. To be in the center of God’s will is such a sweet place. Take comfort knowing that our hearts, thoughts, and prayers are with you.

    May God light your path and give you an extra portion of grace!

    I was praying about your container and I feel that it’s probably on a boat right now in some kind of body of water. perhaps it is going on a vacation, it’s not easy being a container, always being stuffed fill of other peoples stuff. it was probably just tired of being a container so thought it would go for a little trip. We love you container. -Deryk
