312 – We Had the Support of Our Friends
August 13, 1988
God, please send helpers! And please have a friend invite the boys to go swimming. IT’S YARD SALE DAY! [We made $956. God sent Larry and Stephanie Craft! PTL!]
The house is EMPTY and the Wilsons are already moving in!
The message at the Livonia church this morning impacted me: Hebrews 3:1 Consider Jesus. “All He did for me makes all He asks me to do for Him seem small.” Pastor George Davis.
I will fix my eyes on Him.
We went to the Belcastro’s for dinner and the Porters (our home group leaders) came also.
Numbers 2:34 So the Israelites did everything the Lord commanded Moses—so the Lemaires did everything the Lord told Dan Lemaire to do!!
Dan was offered two more weeks of work at his job at SouthCo. So rather than his last day being on the 2nd he would finish the 17th. He prayed about the decision for two days and felt he should take the work. That meant we would be here for the Billy Graham Crusade and also we would be able to give the Livonia School District our ‘intent’ letter to homeschool for the 1988-89 school year. We would then be covered as we head across the country.
All of the boxes are taped for shipping and are on side porch and in the mudroom. WE ARE MAKING PROGRESS!
Each day the boys help us and then swim or play with the neighbor kids. Each night someone has invited us over to dinner. Eddie and Joan Carl gave us a goodbye party! We have made so many fine friends.
We moved into the Pletcher’s house until the 29th, maybe longer if they extend their vacation. God, YOU ARE GOOD.
