What do you do when you feel God has led you down a path only to find the door doesn't open?
That's the question!!!
As you know, we felt led to submit a proposal to a prominent family who believes in giving everything they own into the Kingdom. We spent countless hours preparing it, editing and having several people helping us to make the best presentation we could. (Those that helped, we are eternally thankful and pray God's amazing blessings on you. Your sacrifice of time was a gift that can't be measured, but will be rewarded by the Lord.) We submitted the proposal and this past week we got the reply. They said no! They said they were compelled by our ministry and the obvious need to expand and reach more people, but their funds were tied up in long term projects.
- We believe God gave us this vision and has been preparing us both our entire lives for this season.
- We believe God is directing our steps, even when the outcome is not as we hoped.
- We believe that there is an appointed time for this vision to come into existence and know that God will open the "right door" at the "right time".
I will place on his shoulder the key to the house of David; what He opens no one can shut, and what He shuts no one can open. Isaiah 22:22
So, what's next for us? Many of you have been asking us what's the plan? Here it is! Next steps!
1. Continue in prayer, fasting, contending and believing!
2. Stand in faith & watch the salvation of the Lord!
3. Leave it in God's hands!
This devotional came the day after we got their response. This is exactly where we are at and how we will forge ahead.

We do covet your prayers. This walk the Lord has us on is not easy. He is faithful, however and for that we are so thankful. At the suggestion of a friend, I am attaching a link to our proposal. Copy and paste this link into your browser.
Would you please pray for us that God will open a door soon. We feel grace has lifted for us and it is time to move on. It feels very similar to when we had our house on the market in KC and awaiting God's direction ----to move here. We are weary, but hopeful. Our hope is in the Lord!
Ken - He is faithful to work at a place that is very difficult in many ways. The work environment is hard. The pay is minimal. Thankful for the job, but wishing for a full time - sufficient pay - job - until we step into destiny. Pray for energy, stamina and sleep. Pray for something to shift soon.
Pray for God's faithfulness to provide for our daily needs.
Michele - pray for complete healing to manifest. I am getting sleep for the most part.. not perfect but much better. We still both have trouble on the nights Ken has to be up and to work at 4 am. I am really fighting the temptation to get another dog.
Ministry - well you know - please pray for open doors.
Job - God has given us two business ideas - that could be used to support us where we are going. Pray for open doors and finances and the perfect timing.
