News from Mina Oglesby

July 2016

Hello, dear friends!

In retrospect, I think these last four months have been the most consistently challenging and exhausting of our lives!! "Downsizing" after 36 years in the same area (2 different houses) was a project I dreaded for months beforehand, and which proved to live up to my worst expectations!! ☺

All I will say to you is: If you are in your fifties, DO IT NOW!! Don't wait until you are past seventy and past eighty!! to have this fun project!!

Both Eddie and I testify to the absolute keeping and providing grace of God throughout...even when our tempers were short and we felt as if we could collapse, HE showed Himself strong on our behalf and provided for every need, many before we even KNEW we had one!!

We spent from March 9 to June 23 (in-between meetings) sorting, hauling, cleaning, packing, and left for Sebring, FL, on June 23. Dear new friends from Sebring, Dwight and Janet Pfeiffer, offered to drive up the 632 miles to Chattanooga and bring our huge Penske truck down!! We arrived on June 24 and hired a crew here to unload and place furniture and boxes... For the next three weeks we have unloaded and sorted boxes...several ladies helped unload boxes, and Jesse Eaton has hung EVERY picture and object on the walls (Trust me, for that he deserves a medal!!) Just two nights ago we began to "live" in our newly remodeled house here in Maranatha Village outside of Sebring! Oh, I can't tell you how delicious it felt to sleep in our big, comfy, king bed again!! ☺

Now we are in the process of bringing over what we need from the "Little Blue Castle" (read: mobile home!) and so the packing and moving go on!! However, we DO see the end in sight and are thankful! I know that many of you who know us have prayed for us during these months, and we will say "THANK YOU" for getting us through...we love you and hope to see you in a meeting somewhere this fall...may our Lord be glorified in us is our prayer!!!!!!!!

Bro. Ed and Mina
