Lady Traveler off to Wimberley, Texas Part 1

The MH* Restoration2  2015
Here she is, our new vintage mini-home.  
Out of nowhere, she appeared.  
My friend, Iron Mary, mentioned her over breakfast a few weeks ago, 
then I mentioned her to Rob, 
so we took a drive out to the country and looked her over.  
"Great condition for an old gal," I said as I checked out the mini-great-room.
The whole time I was thinking,
If we do buy this, I'll turn her into a shabby chic MH.
We drove.  We went home.  We prayed.
Then the next day God placed a vision in our hearts but Rob verbalized first.
"Hey, why don't we buy the old RV and volunteer for two years with Christ In Action?" www.christinaction.com 
Amazingly, I agreed.
  Here we go again, I thought.

MS* Restoration1 1994-95

In 1994 Rob and I volunteered on an old World War 2 ship
MS* Restoration
We were on the maiden voyage
to help rescue Russian Jews from
Sochi, Russia to Haifa, Israel.

The two ladies have several parallels.
Both thought their glory days were over.
God saved them both for such a time as this,
and He is giving us our very own MercyMotorHome.

Same colors, blue and white.
Same mission: to help those in need.

Together, Rob, me, and Resti2
--I had to give her a nickname!--
 will journey towards God's vision.
Mile by mile.

Our first destination is
Wemberley, Texas
The recent flood has devastated thousands.
We can be a small part of making a big difference
in the lives of our fellow Americans.

Pray for us as we hit the road this week.
I was hoping for a few 'test runs' with Resti.
A local KOA in the country.
A few days in Myrtle Beach.
But God has different plans. 

You can travel with us via my Facebook page.
I'll be posting some inside photos along the way.
Until then, we covet your prayers as we take
Resti2 on the road.

Oh, by the way,
what is God preparing you for?
Adventure could be just around the corner.
So get ready.
And remember,

Our road will be smooth and untroubled
no matter what care life may send;
if we travel the pathway together, and
walk side by side with friends.

I know what it is to be in need,
and I know what it is to have plenty.
I have learned the secret of being content.
Philippians 4:11-12 NIV
