Flowers for the college

Kent and I have had our RV house parked at South Western College for most of the last month. Last year I planted and maintained flowers for the college in exchange for our site with electric, water and sewer. We had hopes of doing that again. So last Friday we bought 450 flowers for the college and I started in planting them. I love doing this and was really enjoying myself.

Here are the flowers waiting to be planted

On Saturday afternoon we had the news that the college was going to build a baseball field and it would take out the RV park. So all of the volunteers living in RVs there would have to move to another location. This was fairly disturbing news to the volunteers but in light of the tragedy that had just occurred in nearby Tucson, it gave us perspective on it.

Kent and I already had a trip of nearly two weeks planned and so we were going to leave on Friday anyway. We just don’t know for sure where we will come back to after the two weeks. We know that the Lord knows these things and we are trusting Him for that. 3 other couples of RV volunteers for the college are all settled in a nice RV park not far from the college. So there is that possibility for us too.

In the meantime we are on a journey of trusting God for all these future things. Kent has been doing a ton of interviews of new candidates by phone. One couple we had over for a meal a few days ago. So God has work for us to do here and He knows all about all of these things. Kent even got to share the gospel with someone we just me the other day. May God keep working on her heart.

Thanks for all of you that stand behind us as we continue to serve the Lord here in Phoenix and the surrounding area. I hope to still be able to care for the flowers but God may have other things for us to do.

I do pray that God blesses you today as He has me.

Love, Jan for the Roaming Reimers
