Change of plans

Hello Friends - Here we are again with an update. Not a great one unfortunately, but an update none the less.

Eric was scheduled to leave for Angola in 6 days. He has spent the last 4 months preparing and training for the trip. Last week he spent 2 days in Houston packing equipment to ship ahead of them. This past Thursday we received an email from the sending organization that stated that Eric was no longer going. It was very disappointing and hurtful at the same time.

We have been praying for clear direction and I guess you can't get clearer direction than that! In the mean time we have enough to keep us more than busy over here. Our basement continues to leak water, our hot water heater went out last week so we just changed that, Eric has returned to work full time at our company in hopes of boosting sales in this sagging economy and I (Renee) started working at a not-for-profit resale shop where all the profit goes to assisting orphans in Africa. Just a plug for the store if you live in the Holland area. Africa's Child is located next to Goodwill on Lakewood Blvd. They are a "higher scale" resale shop, so the products are in really good condition and the store does not have that "used" smell! Visit us M-F between 10am and 6pm. If you have good quality items please feel free to donate to us also! OK - done with my plug!

This journey to full time missionaries is longer and more tedious than we expected, however God has a plan and we want to be where he wants us -for now that is in Holland.

Blessings to all!
