Journal Entry – together on the Journey – How fast Life Changes!April 23, 2018 - Author: Editor
2 days ago my mother Carol Hill past from this life into the next peacefully in her sleep. We are sad and at the same time glad, for we knew that she claimed Jesus as Lord and Savior of her life. Thank you to all those that have shared with us in your kind comments, concerns, and offers of help in this time of grief for the Hill family. We will Celebrate her life in Christ and lay her body to rest on May 1st in Arizona.
How rapidly God works sometimes when we least expect it. I thought our life was upside down when I watched our brother James take the majority of our stuff away to Alaska without us. We were set to hunker down here in Nebraska as our home base and finish raising support, but that all changed on Saturday. We are now pulling up stakes and moving our mobile Embassy to Arizona as we hope to be help to my father Bill Hill during this time, and, well, I just can’t say no to God. We had at least 4 direct incidents on Saturday that both Sarabeth and I believed God was speaking very loudly to us. He is even putting details of our departure together as I write this update. So what we thought was going to be a few weeks round trip through Texas, Arizona and New Mexico, has turned out to be a one way, pack it all up, straight to family in Arizona trip.
We leave this Thursday Lord willing. We had a wonderful time of wrapping up with the wonderful church here this past Sunday, the kids got to attend the final Awana last week and Matthew will be able to attend the final youth group meeting this Wednesday to say his goodbyes. God has a such an awesome way of tying up things!
Can you see God working in our lives?
Prayer: for Safety in travel, for smoothness in travel, for a God honoring funeral, for strength to take advantage of divine appointments, for good time with family and friends, for more pledges of financial support so we can GO!
Praises: for God’s peace in the midst of the storm, our belongings made it to Alaska safely, for a wonderful family that has given us this temporary Embassy!
In His service,
The Hill Family
