|"WE MOVED on December 18th, 2011"|
We've moved and are enjoying our New Home in Waxhaw! We apologize for not sharing this fantastic praise with you all sooner, but it's been a little busy in the Mohney Homestead. We moved the weekend before Christmas and only unpacked a few things than began packing for our trip to PA to celebrate Christmas with family. We had a very nice time with family, but we also caught a cold virus during our time there. When we returned home we opened the door to our New home....we had quite the job ahead of us of unpacking and organizing the house. In the mist of that, the entire family was sick with head colds/sinus stuff. Jim ended up with the worst sinus infection ever and was off work for almost a week recovering. We plugged away one box at a time and in about three weeks, we had a big dent in the boxes that were laying around the house and it was beginning to feel like home.
When we think back over the way the Lord orchestrated the entire process, it completely blows our mind. We serve a Savior who understands us completely and truly desires the best for his children. We are grateful to the Lord for this precious gift and are already sharing it with others. We have a deep desire to share the love of Christ through hospitality. A few weeks after we settled in we had several families in for food and fellowship. With Heidi's joy to entertain, the JAARS hospitality ministry has been a great fit for services. This ministry reaches out to families and individuals who come to JAARS for training or volunteer service which gives us and opportunity to connect with them. It's been such a blessing to us to hear God's story and how He's been working in their lives and ministry.
Being that my main ministry is in the home with my precious boys we are always seeking out ways we can reach out to others in a practical way. It's been really neat to see the boys eagerness to help out in the kitchen these days. We had heard of a need for cookies to be made to share with a large group of young people coming to JAARS for a morning tour. I had thought, this would be a great way for our boys to be involved in reaching out to others with the love of Christ through a cookie treat. So we signed up to make 6 dozen cookies and to spread those seeds of kindness to others. Another way we've been able to share God's love with others is connecting with families at JAARS and our local church. Heidi has also found a MOPS program here in Waxhaw, which has been a real blessing to connect with other moms in the community and be refreshed in body, mind and soul. Heidi has just recently started going to a ladies Bible study on Monday evenings. She desires to deepen in her walk with Christ as she studies the book of James through a Beth Moore study which also provides accountability and encouragement with other women of faith.
With moving to a new area we are beginning to form those relationships with others and building on that through play dates. We have met several families with young children about the same ages as Cody and Joshua. Our desire is to build on those relationships as we come together for play dates in each other homes and now that the weather is warming up again at the play grounds. Here are a few pictures of the boys and their new friends!
