August 2010

We were home for one week when our Lord provided Micah with a part-time job at a histology lab in Mt. Jackson, VA.  It is about a 15-20 minute commute, which is the closest place around unless you could get a job as a farmhand.  We had not started praying about it or anything yet, it just goes to show how our Father takes care of us in all circumstances.  Micah works about 25hrs a week and is a full-time seminary student.

We are living out in Basye-Bryce Mountain.

Last year, visiting the Feldman’s cabin.  Who would have known we would be staying there?  God did.

Friends of ours are being more than generous with letting us live in their cabin while we look for work.  Sarah is currently a stay at home wife, writing a lot of thank you notes, learning to cook, clean, manage the household, etc.  She drives to the library for internet connection to look for jobs.  Those college loans will start knocking in a couple months…

Besides that we are driving into Harrisonburg on Sundays to worship and serve our God with our Aletheia church family. We try to have people over to minister and be hospitable.  We take walks, attempt to do P90x workouts, read and sing psalms and hymns together.  Most importantly, we are doing our best to glorify our Creator by loving and ministering to one another.  So far, marriage has been a beautifully easy transition.

  1. I have never met two people who display the truth of God in everything that they do… Thank you Sarah and Micah – Mr and Mrs. Downs.
