What we've been up to

So what have we been up to this past month? Well, a lot actually. Randy got the conditional offer from Cedar Hill FD and went through the last round of testing. After the results were in, he didn't pass so they didn't give him the job. We were bummed. But we know that if that wasn't the job God wanted him to have, then something else is out there. So we are trusting in that. He is now in the interview process with Arlington FD. I'll keep you updated as things progress.

We also met with a Realtor to start looking for a house. Our lease is up in a few months and we both are excited about the possibility of having our own house. Keep us in your prayers. Stuff with the economy and financial markets are so up in the air right now and we want to make the right decisions.

Last weekend our church, TCAL, had its 2nd Anniversary Celebration. 2 years ago in October, we started having weekly services. Wow! Look where God has brought us now. We went from 40-50 a week to averaging 400 in September. It is all God. Randy and I have been serving in the kids minstry since the beginning and we've gone from max 15 kids to over 100 a week! Now we have 2 services, so that adds a new dynamic to the picture. We had a Celebration Picnic & Baptism on Sunday night at the property. Here are a few pics from it:

Good luck with the house searching! Now is the time to buy if you are able to get a loan.

On a side note: did y'all ever get that playhouse worked out? I realized the other day that i didn't follow up with you about it. If you still need help, i should be availible.

On another side note: we need to hang out some time. I still have some of Randy's transformers and it has been awhile since we have seen y'all.

Good luck to Randy, I can see if Rick can talk to the Cheif and put a good word in for him. :)
