Since I have been so good a keeping up with this lately, I decided that I may as well title this entry for the month. Chances are it will be the only one. Lately things have been great! We, of course, are busy as usual, but all is well in the Haney/Jewett/Bair household. Yes...that is as ridiculous as it sounds. Life is always an adventure in our house.
This week was incredible for all of us. We attended a church planter's seminar, and we all got so much out of it. I now find myself encouraged, motivated, and completely overwhelmed. There is so much to do! I know that it is going to take nothing short of 1000 miracles for God to make this happen. All of us are beyond thrilled and excited to be a part of what God is doing and what He will continue to do in the Pacific Northwest. Lately it seems like at any given moment God will throw us something new. A couple weeks ago a guy from Portland literally just showed up on our doorstep! He just happened to knock on our door as part of a community outreach project, and he just happened to be working with a church plant here in Dallas. We have since visited with him twice about what we are going to be doing in Portland, and he is helping us establish connections and learn the city. Unbelievable!
Then this week a pastor at the seminar asked if we would be willing to be his missionaries for his summer week of camp. He wants us to come and share and teach and lead as the camp financially supports ThePortlandProject. Again...unbelievable!
I am sure these seem like small simple things, but we are learning the importance and the significance of every victory and affirmation that God gives us. When we stop celebrating these moments, we will begin to forget who is behind it all. God is so good, and we are so incredibly blessed to be called to this ministry. Please continue to pray! We need prayer more than anything!
