"'O LORD, God of my master,' he prayed. 'Give me success and show kindness to my master, Abraham. Help me to accomplish the purpose of my journey.'" Genesis 24:12

If you have ever traveled I-80 through Nebraska or I-70 through Kansas you know that is seems as if you are never going to see anything but fields of crops and you will never reach the beauty of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado.  You have to realize that you must travel one mile at a time and be thankful for each mile that has been traveled because you know that each mile you travel will sooner or later get you to the beauty of the Mountains.

That is what we have learned since October 7, 2011 when our daughter Justina went home to be with her Lord.  We have learned to live one day at a time and with each day that passes we are thankful to God for the strength, direction and faithfulness of our God that carried us   through another day. 

We have emotional scars we must carry each day, but each day they heal a bit more. We learn to lean on our Savior Jesus Christ a little more each day and we are growing spiritually stronger each day.  We need to continue to go through this healing process and listen to God to tell us the next steps we are to take in ministry.  When we are emotionally and spiritually healed and prepared to move forward with a Cadence International ministry God will let us know in His time.


The Monday before Justina’s accident I finally showed her how to check the oil in her car after her asking me to show her many times.  After I explained in detail how to check the oil, I hugged her and said, “I love you” before she took off for her week of school.

 I have often thought about where my spiritual level is.  I ask myself, “How much more can I take?”   “When will all this pain disappear?”  Have you ever thought about how you would make it through a tragedy like losing a child?  Check your oil; check your spiritual level.

Keep reading your Bible and keep fellowshipping with other believers and keep the prayer line open because you never know when you will need to draw from the well of faithfulness, grace, mercy and strength of our God.


Pray for emotional and spiritual healing.
Pray for guidance in making ministry decisions.
Pray for financial and prayer partners to join us in ministry.
