Our New Church Home

This is the sign that greeted us as we arrived.Our new church home--Crossroads Baptist Church. I don't have any pics of the inside of the church yet. I will take some soon and post them.

As lots of you know, we arrived here a week before any of our stuff. People in the church brought us all kinds of things in order to live without our stuff. One family brought this card table and chairs complete with a table cloth and fresh flowers. Another family brought us a tv with some bunny ears. Another family brought us a playpen and baby supplies for Justus. Different ladies in the church also brought homecooked meals for the first several days. They also brought us paper plates, plastic cups, plastic utensils, serving utensils, napkins, paper towels, drinks, dish rags, and much more. They did all that they could to welcome us and make our first days as easy and comfortable as possible without our stuff.

The first Sunday we were here the church gave us a "pounding". Each family was to bring us a pound of food. This is just a small part of it. We have a FULL pantry. We were also given some gift cards to go and buy more groceries. We are definately blessed and extremely grateful!
