Goodbye News from the Nest...Hello Mountain Views

New ministry, new house, new church, new perspective, now new name of our newsletter also!  We were trying to think of a clever name for our newsletter.  The style , location, and unfortunately most of our furniture just don’t fit the personality of our Tennessee Mountain home.  We love our new house and most especially enjoy the view  of Roan Mountain from our windows.  Mountain Views reflects our personal views of ministry, both Globally and personally as well as the lessons we are learning on a daily basis from the Lord.

     We are pretty much settled now.  We still have boxes we have stuffed in the closets or garage to go through later.  We had our very first out of town visitors last week so it helped motivate us to go through the remaining boxes in the guest room.  Charlie’s  sister Anne and husband Ken came to see us  from California .  They were our very first out of town guests when we moved to Virginia, so it was very fitting  that they be our first guests here.  We had such a great visit that it was hard to see them leave.  What a blessing they have been to us all our married life.

    We helped with Trunk or Treat at Grandview Christian Church.  Our daughter Suzy loves to dress her family in theme costumes.  This year her theme was board games.  She dressed like a Scrabble game, and our grands were Twister, Battleship, and Mr.  Monopoly.  In keeping with the family theme we chose to go as Clue characters.  We were Mrs. White and Colonel Mustard...what do think?  Did we nail the part?

   We are busy getting ready for ICOM in Louisville, Kentucky this month.  I am busy writing brochures for Global as Michael will be hosting a workshop on discipleship.  Charlie is busy working on a new website and other special projects.  Please stop by and see us if you are going to ICOM.  Our director Michael Householder has been    having wonderful responses in Myanmar and will be coming home soon.

    Thank you for your prayers and support.  God has given us many assurances that we are exactly where we need to be.  Please pray for our preparations for ICOM, travel and extra expenses involved in ministry.  
Charlie and Kathy
