We spoke with Mom last Sunday afternoon and a long and very enjoyable conversation. One of the topics of conversation was the lifestyle that Linda and I are currently living. You see, Mom and Dad lived this lifestyle for many, many years and Mom still lives in an RV resort in Yuma, Arizona at 96 years young.

I was telling her about parts of our journey and she was reminiscing about her and Dad’s adventures. She was very content with their lifestyle and wondered why more people don’t retire to travel trailers and I wondered the same thing. Fear I guessed, fear of losing their possessions and the need to be around a strong support group of family and friends. Any number of things can root us to a location or a lifestyle.

Linda and I decided that we could put our trust in the Lord, giving away our possessions and forsaking all others. When we did this, He not only gave us the strength to let go of our things and our relationships, He gave us better things. He renewed and strengthened our important relationships and provided us with new friends. New friends who help in our spiritual journey, who encourage us.

This has been an interesting 3 days. Thursday, we completed what was, perhaps, our most rewarding project yet. Friday, we packed and drove to Shreveport, only to hook up and find a water problem. 100 dollars later problem solved.

Meanwhile, we had a wonderful and bittersweet visit with the man and his wife who stood tall in Linda’s life when her Dad passed away. He is now in a nursing home and they have decisions to make. Their lives have been full and their positive influence has been felt by many young people.

Woke up this morning to a different water problem. This one has a temporary fix that we can use until a permanent solution presents itself. So, today we pack up and move on to another site for 2 nights, then another site for 2 nights and then we settle for 2 weeks in Arley Alabama.

During all of this, Linda is sleeping poorly and some of her health issues are acting up. We know we are being effective in our ministry when we feel this joy in our hearts and satan begins to work hard to discourage us. Time to move on, time to spread His love some more.
