On the 17th of February we told you about the 5th wheel God gave us, and started a fundraiser to take care of various thing we would need to get out on the road full time doing marriage ministry. We are now approaching 75% of our goal, and it’s time to finish the fundraiser. I figure five months for a fifth wheel has a nice sound to it, so we will end on July 17th, regardless of where we are on the goal.

As I said recently, we’ve reached the point where heading out this fall is a done deal. Now it’s a matter of how functional and comfortable we will be. A couple of weeks ago I got up on the roof and decided the 16 year old AC unit was not worth trying to fix. We have put in a single portable unit which has kept the living room below 90 during a record heat wave here, but I’d like to add an RV swamp cooler.

Then our inverter went south, putting out 150 volts while claiming it was putting out anywhere from 80 to 120 volts. We plan to do a good deal of dry camping for a number of reasons, including saving money, and a working inverter is required for keeping our computer running when we dry camp. So we put the last of our available cash into a new inverter.

I share all this to give you an idea where we are and what we’ve done with the generous gifts we have received so far. I said at the start this would only happen if God was in it, and with the help of many who feel what we do it worth supporting. We’ve seen God do amazing things, and we’ve had 263 of you send a gift. It’s been mind blowing, humbling, and just awesome.

If you feel like supporting this, click here, or send a few dollars by mail to the address below. If you feel what we’re doing is a good thing, please keep us in your prayers, and look for us as we circle the country starting September 20th! We will post our travel route on The Generous Journey

Hold Your Ideas Loosely

June 30, 2015

I’ve always had very strong opinions. Or perhaps I should say I’ve always felt strongly about my opinions. Or I could cut to the chase and say it’s a pride issue, but let’s not go there. In large part, I thought acting sure of myself made me look strong. I decided to look sure of myself […]

Perfectionism vs Being Picky

June 29, 2015

I’ve discussed the danger of perfectionism a number of times on this blog. A similar issue is being picky. Picky isn’t necessarily about wanting perfection; it’s about wanting things done a certain way – your way.  I say this as someone who has been far too picky most of my life. In some areas, I […]

How Often Does Your Marriage Need Prayer?

June 28, 2015

Frankly, I wonder how unsaved folks manage marriage. Prayer is so important, and on occasion asking God (loudly) what was wrong with my wife was the only thing that kept me semi-sane. Your marriage needs prayer ALL. THE. TIME. It needs your prayer, your wife’s prayer, and the two of you praying together. It also needs […]

How Often Does Your Marriage Need Sex?

June 27, 2015

You’ve been waiting for this one, right? How much sex does your marriage need? Very possibly more than you think! Maybe not more than you want, but possibly, more than you fear is right. (See last Saturday’s God Made Men Horny! If you think you want too much sex.)  As the title says, this is about […]

How Often Does Your Marriage Need Non-Sexual Touch?

June 26, 2015

First, let’s define non-sexual touch. It does not, necessarily, mean no arousal or sexual interest on your part. If you’re young or sex starved it’s pretty much impossible to be close enough to touch your wife without being interested in sex. This isn’t about what what’s going on in your mind or your pants; it’s about […]

How Often Does Your Marriage Need Arguments?

June 25, 2015

Arguments, or heated discussion, or disagreements if you prefer, are inevitable in a healthy marriage. If a couple never disagrees at least one of them isn’t being honest about what they think and feel. It turns out a screaming fighting is less harmful to your marriage than both of you bottling up your emotions and going […]

How Often Does Your Marriage Need Talk?

June 24, 2015

Can I get you to go spend a few minutes watching How About a Little Conversation?, a brilliant sketch by Jay and Laura Laffoon? Women need conversation with their husband. Suggesting they need it as much as men need sex is not an exaggeration for most couples. In the same ways sexual refusal hurts a man, conversation refusal […]
