The Googegs - Strangers in the World

The Googegs - Strangers in the World

Monday, July 27, 2009


I haven't updated my blog in forever, because the summer whirlwind hit and I hardly know where we are. Last week we went back to our previous church for the Vacation Bible School week. It is a week that leaves me feeling a bit worn, as we visit old friends and drive 30 minutes back and forth every night. We left that church because we moved away and we didn't want the drive to hamper our ability to participate. We try to return every year for Bible School and it is always a treat.

This week is our Nazarene District Campmeeting. That is our current church and campmeeting doesn't mean that everyone is camping. The week is scheduled at our district campgrounds, which are very close to us. Some folks have cottages or do camp. There are services held twice a day and three times on Sunday. The kids under 12 have activities arranged for them. The purpose is to revive the church. We love going and this year has been another great year.

Driving back and forth to VBS every night and now campmeeting twice a day is not doing wonders for my organization. I almost couldn't find a check I needed to deposit today and I plumb forgot to take the one load of clothes I actually washed off the line. It is a bit crazy here, but everyone got fed and everyone got a bath -- I guess that is a successful day.

We are also dealing with other big issues as we felt strongly led to leave our church. We were not angry with anyone or upset about anything specific, we just knew it was time for our family to step out -- that being said we have yet to have a clear leading on where exactly we should go. This has been a time of soul searching , much prayer and many conversations. At this moment we are "homeless", so to speak.

God is faithful and where He leads us we will follow...
