"Give me neither poverty nor riches;
Feed me with the food that is my portion,
That I not be full & deny You & say, “Who is the Lord?” Or that I not be in want & steal,
& profane the name of my God."

Packing to move, packing 6 more bags to send to So Sudan & YARDSALE 4/29-30
Thank you for your caring prayers as I (Patty) recover from malaria. I am feeling well & working on getting back my stamina. Trying to do a little each day toward packing up our personal belongings in order to move just after Mother's Day 5/9/16to our new home & adventure as Inn Keepers at Maplewood Lodgings in Otis, MA, Berkshire County.http://www.maplewoodlodging.com/
BUT, our first task is to pack up all the wonderful donations we have already received of clothing, shoes, soccer balls, sewing kits & discipleship material that are piled high in our small living room (first pic). The duffle bags we ordered arrived and we filled four with 50 pounds each of donations!! The second picture shows you how much we still have left over and then some. This pic does not include the two more bags of donated medical supplies and discipleship materials & more stuff that Jon requested.
God is good and His people are so generous!!!
We also plan to have a YARD SALE on Fri./Sat. APRIL 29 & 30here at 86 E. Bacon St. Plainville, MA, in order to raise the funds needed to purchase additional medical supplies and discipleship materials, as well as, to cover the cost of extra baggage fees to get them on the plane with the Levi's on May 1.
If anyone local wants to donate yard sale items to sell, Roger can use his truck to pick them up. And any donations toward the cost of last minute purchases and extra baggage fees would be a huge blessing!! WE'D LOVE FOR YOU TO STOP BY & VISIT US before we move west over those two days 4/29 & 30 if you're free!!!
So much has been happening in our lives that keeps us constantly on our knees, crying out to God for physical healing and restoration of relationships, and for God to do what we cannot do on so many levels. It is a time where God has shown us our prayers are way too small for a God so great!! The Battle is His and we praise the King of kings & our Father, Who is able, powerful and more willing than we can imagine. To Him be the glory!!!
Thank you for taking time to read this and for your prayers & support.
