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.
