No Facebook….

Posted by joelbyer on July 25, 2009

Just a quick updated to let everyone know that the local Tunkhannock library doesn’t let me access Facebook. I’m posting this on my blog which automatically posts to Facebook. Thus any comments you leave can’t be responded to me. however we expect to get internet hooked up Monday.
Well, off to my first ever pastoral calls in Tunkhannock. Woohoo!

We have arrived!

Posted by joelbyer on July 24, 2009

Yup, we’re here in Tunkhannock, PA! We got in last evening and had a good trip with no hassles at the border…except for a period of waiting in line. THANK GOD!
We’re looking forward to connecting with people in this community and sharing God’s grace. If you live in the Tunkhannock area, stop by and say hi! Seriously. Come sit on a pile of boxes and chat, or help us unpack and chat. It’s your choice 🙂

We’re leaving this morning…

Posted by joelbyer on July 23, 2009

Well folks, it’s 4:46AM, and we’re planning to leave somewhere around 6ish. It’ll be a big day! We’re moving all that we have from Dawn Valley to Tunkhannock.
We would appreciate your prayers that we make it safely through the border.

Most of all, we would appreciate your prayers that in the chaotic business of all that’s going on and will go on, we won’t lose our focus on what’s most important! (Matthew 22:37-39)

The U-haul has arrived

Posted by joelbyer on July 21, 2009


Silly you. And here you thought the main purpose of a U-haul was for packing. Nope. It makes a great bike/trike/scooter playland. 🙂
Seriously, we are packing some this evening, but mainly tomorrow. There is a mixture of emotions to be sure, but we are looking forward to what God has in store!
We plan to officially move Thursday. Please keep us in your prayers!

Twitter!

Posted by joelbyer on July 15, 2009

A new feature on this blog is the “My Twitter” updates on the middle of the left hand side column. You can keep updated on all the trivial insignificant data of my life.
Why?
Because you have the time of course! 🙂

A little BBB update…

Posted by joelbyer on July 14, 2009

Well folks, this blog has pretty much fallen off the face of the earth these last few weeks. Things have been busy, our lives have been in upheaval, and I sit in a study of boxes as I speak!
However, God has also been really working in our lives and we have been blessed beyond measure.

Last week our family went to OIHA Camp, and to be honest, I was a little worried. New passport regulations at the border threatened to dramatically reduce attendance, and as is every year, the finances of the camp always weigh heavily on me as I endeavour to direct the camp.
Let me just say that unless you actually are in charge of something, it’s pretty hard to understand the weight that it brings!
BUT! God gave us a great camp with a good crowd and the finances came in too! (Well mostly…but at the very least if anything it was even better than last year)
Praise God!

So tonight, as I sit in my study of boxes, getting ready to change the other rear brake pad and rotor on my minivan, I can truly say that God is good!
Hopefully, I’ll be able to post some pix later…
