Quick update ~ agh!

Are you wondering where we are?  Did we get on the road?

Well as a matter of fact, we did get on the road.  Just not very far down the road.  We are in Northbend, WA at Cascade Diesel Truck & RV Repair.  Yes we have been here before and find ourselves here again.

We left Blaine yesterday afternoon about 3:00 p.m.  As we started up I90 towards Snoqualmie Pass the motor home just didn't want to go.  It chugged along and Ron said he was pulling into Cascade as they have worked on our home before and Mark, the owner is a great Christian guy and it shows in his dealings with people and situations.  Because it was after 5:00 we could not call ahead for Mark to put the power cord out so we just parked in his lot.

About 7:00 p.m. I crawled into bed.  I was still not feeling well, it was dark outside and the battery on the mifi died.  I slept till Ron's alarm went off about 7:15 this morning.  I got up, got dressed and then promptly returned to my bed.  I slept till about 9:30.  

By 9:30 this morning Ron had already talked with Mark and they had a plan.  I have spent most of the day in the waiting area using Mark's power for the computer and mifi card.

It is now 3:00 and they have found a bad cellanoid (sp) not real sure what is happenin'...Don't know if it can be fixed today or not.  Will just have to wait and see.

Prayer request ~~

~ for me to feel better.  I have a horrible cold, sore throat and a headache

~ for Mark to figure out what is wrong and to be able to fix the motor home to get us back on the road
~ for me to keep trusting God in this....I worry about the money.  Lord help me to keep trusting you and not fret over things which I have no control.

Will update when I know something.

Gotta love those plans written in jello. As you so aptly stated, God is your pilot.

I am praying for a quick remedy and inexpensive remedy to your motorhome problems. I am thankful that you were able to stop at a place familiar to you. I know that you would have preferred to be further down the road, but at least here you trust the mechanic. Keep your chins up, Ali and Ron!

Alice, we do hope you are feeling better soonest! Also know that we will pray for you and Ron and that those items you listed will be resolved. Hopefully your motorhome will be squared away very soon. Take care and do get some rest.

Waiting to hear you are on your way. Remember, God is in charge!

But even knowing that, it is so hard to not worry about money. I do the same.
