yep, God still rocks

so i talked with my MPD* coach this afternoon and told him that i felt like we were getting to a spot where the "honeymoon" phase of fundraising was coming to a close.
right after New Staff Training we were all fired up, excited to make appointments, and confident with the tools that we'd be given.

now after 3 weeks…we're juggling a 40hr work week, kids determined to live in a messy house, and people forgetting or rescheduling the appointments they'd previously set with us.

but through it all God is faithful. i have a job that i'm thankful for and enjoy doing. we've been blessed with a babysitter who not only watches kids, but cleans as well. and deb have enjoyed getting to spend unexpected time together when our schedule is suddenly "freed up".

plus, after FOUR appointments this week that were cancelled, rescheduled, or simply forgotten we were blessed with another couple who have partnered with us for $100/month.

that's exactly what we needed at exactly the right time.


thanks God, you rock! :)
