Sick in Chicago
Okay, so since the last posting a few milestones have been met. I am self-unemployed now as of 6/30 and totally homeless and car-less. (That's car-less not careless) We are here in Chicago still and have been dealing with some illness. I (joe) have been sick for the past two and a half weeks with some sort of Martian virus. A few days in the hospital in Macomb and a visit to the emergency room in Chicago has left me sick of being sick. Things seem to be getting better though. It has been a bit difficult being here at JPUSA only because we are so used to doing tasks and jobs. So since we've been here we've been dealing with a little bit of cabin fever. But the Lord is trying to show us something while we are here and we are hoping to hear His voice. We spent a long week at Cornerstone Festival. It would have been better if I wasn't sick but it brought back some old memories nevertheless. I have never been to the festival with a wife and kids. The kids were blown away by all of the music and crazy people. D and I were intrigued by their reactions. All in all it has been a log couple of weeks but we're hanging in out here. God is good and faithful and has not brought us on this journey to fail. Thank you Lord for friends/family but most off all for your peace through your Spirit. Amen.
