Just wanting to let you guys know a bit of what I'm up to next.

I've have an awesome opportunity to attend the school of ministry at the Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship. I was really searching for direction while Trev and I were out there. It's coming up pretty quickly, you can check it out at http://som.catchthefire.com/heart.

It felt wrong to be cleaning out our home in East St. Paul without Ramona there to organize everything (and do more than her share of work). I took the last load out of that house today.

I also totalled the car Ramona and I used for the last 3 years. I brought that car in today too.

My belongings will be spread through out Morweena as I spend the next 5 months at school in Toronto.

I again thank you guys for praying for me. Now, three months after Ramona passed away, I still have numerous people telling me they're praying for me. Within the last few weeks it feels like my head has begun to clear up a little bit...I guess that's a good thing.

Earl, definitely still thinking about you...thanks for this post, I will keep you in my prayers as you are stepping forward and leaving MB for 5 months. My heart always skips a beat when I see an update on your blog...One thing I think of is how you & Ramona fought so hard together and how Jesus was right there with you as you leaned on Him through it all. Praying that you will continue to feel Jesus so powerfully and that He will lead & guide you.

Earl, I'm supporting you in this step too. Seems everyday I can't believe Ramona has moved on and still grapple with so many thoughts and wonderings. But one thing I know is that the way we Jesus interacting with you through everything was so real and like nothing I've witnessed before. I pray for you everyday and will continue to do that. I know Ramona had so many dreams and you had a central role in those dreams. As much as you and all of us wish you could be heading out together, you are left to carry the flame that God placed in your hearts. I will pray you'll have courage, boldness and vision. That nothing could blow out the flame but that the Holy Spirit will fan it into a fire. You are close to our hearts Earl and we send you a big hug. Our hearts ache for you and are full of hope for you.

Earl, blessings to you as you head out. I have been thinking about Ramona a lot these days... Memories of angel soup (and so many more!) are tucked away in my memory.
Definitely wish you Gods best!

Earl, I too wish you many blessings and still think of you often. I also want to thank you for the way you were there for Ramona every step of the way. You were very good for her, and I'm so glad she had you in her life. Your dedication and committment to her were admirable and inspirational. I wish you all the best during your stay in Toronto.
