I started to work for an in home care organization a couple of weeks ago.  Things are going well.  The girls have all been sick this last week and are beginning to recover.  We love being in the south as we are avoiding most of the cold and wet white stuff.  We did have some a couple of weeks ago but that is long gone.  I still have things that need to be repaired on the van and am asking for Yah's provision in that area.  Abigail has gone back to help Sarah and John with Manasseh until Hanukkah when she will be back to join us for the celebration. 
   We praise our Father for his provision for a reasonable place to camp while we rejuvenate and get our resources replenished.  We are also renting a 15x10 foot storage unit which is on the same place as the campground.  This gives us a little more room to spread out. 
   Please pray for us in the area of finding friends and fellowship as well as the rest of our needs which I have made known to our Father.  We try to patiently wait for His provision. 
I think we have had our next place verified to us but we will wait until Father gives us the green light through His provision to head in that direction.

The proving of belief

Praising Elohim.  I had an interview this morning for a part time job with housekeeping.  It is for 20 hours and the pay is pretty low.  It would pay for a camping site plus my gas for work.  I also have an interview on Monday for in home help for the elderly.  The hospital this morning was excited to have received my application.  They are having a hard time keeping their housekeeping staff.  (can't help to wonder why that may be...perhaps it has something to do with the pay).  One drawback on the part time job is they require a flu shot.  Due to my religious convictions about what I put into my body, that won't happen.  They had a couple of more people to interview yet and will get back to me on Monday or Tuesday. 
   The interview I have on Monday...When I filled out the application they said they didn't have anything at the time but that could change.  When I talked with them yesterday they went so far as to say they had someone in mind for me even before my interview. 
   I will continue to look for work and look forward to seeing how Elohim works these things out as we continue to serve Him.
    I talked with a gentleman named Terry in the parking lot of Walmart today.  He too was from Minnesota.  He saw the front license plate on the van and started talking with me.  I mentioned we were Torah Observant believers, he asked me where we were fellowshipping as Baptists are extremely dominant in this area.  I told him we don't have a fellowship persay but there are others of like mind in the area.  He then invited us to his church on Sunday.  So, I think we were both trying to evangelize and talk of Elohim to each other.

This sums up where we are at today.
Jas 1:2 My brothers, count it all joy when you fall into various trials,
Jas 1:3 knowing that the proving of your belief works endurance.
Jas 1:4 And let endurance have a perfect work, so that you be perfect and complete, lacking in naught.
Jas 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of Elohim, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it shall be given to him.
Jas 1:6 But he should ask in belief, not doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.
Jas 1:7 For that man should not think that he shall receive whatever from the Master –
Jas 1:8 he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.

The testing of Faith

  At this time in our travels we find our faith is being sorely tried.  We have some repairs that need to be made before we journey onward and without the finances to make those repairs.  We are needing to move to another location as the water where we are will need to be shut off for the winter.  Our finances are dwindling and I have not yet been able to find work to bring in a steady income.  We look forward to how Abba El will be meeting our needs with anticipation.  For some there are doubts, some of us are hanging on by a shoestring as we bring our needs to our Father who knows all things before we ask.  I have lived for Elohim too long to actually give up my faith in His Word but there still remains that struggle.  I know all the scriptures that tell of His love for us and how He will meet those needs.  It is one thing to know in my head but another all together for those head messages to reach the heart.  I hesitate to share here what the needs are as I desire to leave things in the hands of Father and to watch as He meets those needs.  One need we had that has been met is a hot water heater.  Ours rusted out and until I can replace it at the cost of 500.00 we have no running water again in the camper.  My daughter who is with us has offered her savings to have it replaced so we are able to move forward.  I am praising Elohim for this answer to my prayers and ask that He will continue to guide and direct us.  I trust that all is well for those who are following us.  I am sorry I am not able to update the blog very much as we have to travel to use the internet.
