Moved in!

All Oldbury girls have moved into their new homes! Thank you so much for your prayers. We definitely had a smooth move and a really good transition into our lovely new abode. Prior to the move, the girl’s houses were a good 20minutes away from each other, which meant fellowship and community time for the girls was kind of difficult. But now, we barely have to step out the door to see our neighboring sisters.

When I first arrived, living in community here was described to me as a “pressure cooker of sanctification.” Hits the nail right on the head.

Everyday consists of eating, working, and everything else together. We have the opportunity to have incredible conversations about life, struggles, joys, and pains. It is such a vulnerable place for God to shape and mold us, that I can’t thank Him enough that I can first hand witness his work. Living at a comfortable temperature in life is an easy place to fall into, but room temperature doesn’t exactly cook food to a consumable state. I would really challenge you (and I’m speaking to the choir here) that if you live in room temperature pot, step into the pressure cooker and see how God can heat up your life.

Prayers & Praises:
– Move went well!
– Strength for our new girl as she gets ready to start working jobs this week and go to church for the first time

Culture Corner:
– Baked beans on toast is a common breakfast here. Tried it for the first time this morning and it was actually quite tasty.

  1. I’m glad your move went well. Been in the pressure cooker. It is amazing to see God’s faithfulness. The irony is that we are always in the battle. It’s just that sometimes the deceiver convinces us that we aren’t. There is no doubt that you are facing some very difficult circumstances. You can do everything God has called you to do when you trust in Him for everything. We love you and miss you. I thought of you yesterday, when we did the lake day. You’re in my prayers, Mr. Roberts
