Blasting off

Hello from beautiful Hamilton, Virginia where it is muggy and we have had a wonderful rain shower already this morning. I want to take a minute and catch up on the last week.

We continue to be amazed and overwhelmed by God's goodness to us. That He brought us here for a purpose (or multiple purposes) is evident every single day. The wonderful Tigges family that owns the bed and breakfast where we are staying has already become so dear to us. Our children are playing and hanging out together. Us grownups are enjoying good conversation and fellowship. We are enjoying learning about the business and helping out where we can. Emma even went on a camping trip to West Virginia for four days with some of the T family and had a great time. What blessings we are living and experiencing! Bob is meeting new people almost every day and we are encouraged about settling down in this area. God is already at work here and we are thrilled to join in on what He is doing.

Backing up a bit, Bob had the privilege of going to Houston over the weekend for The Response that was held in the Reliant Center. It was an important time of prayer and fasting for the country. He was also able to spend time with his dad and mom, as well as a short but special time with his sister and her children who were also in town visiting.

We have been continuing to seek God's face regarding the purposes He has for us here and how He wants us to minister here. We are prayerfully considering starting our own non-profit organization. Please pray into this with us, that we would know His purpose, His timing and His provision for what we are sensing. It is exciting!!! And please let us know if you are praying...email me at scarlettroyce at gmail dot com. You are such an encouragement to us!

Here are a few photos from that past two weeks...

The sunsets have been stunning lately!
