Hello from Washington!

Romans 12:17-21

(17) Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone.
(18) If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.
(19) Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God's wrath, for it is written: "It is mine to avenge; I will repay," says the Lord.
(20) On the contrary: "If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head."
(21) Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Sometimes, it is really easy to love your enemy and live at peace. Just leave people alone and just ignore issues right? 


God didn’t just call us to live in peace by just ignore the issues of the world. He called us to love our enemies, and to feed them. But what do you do when your enemy lives right next door and gets angry at things that seem insignificant? How do your really love your neighbor? It is really hard to not want to get revenge on someone that seems hostile to you. 

We don’t know what they are going through and we may be the only Christian influence that they see, and we can’t sully His name. It is really hard to not lash out in anger, but it is how we can show God’s love to those around us.

In the last few months we started attending a church called Summit. We were hesitant to try a new church because we had already been attending a different church. However, the first week that we attended we both felt that it was a good fit for both of us. It had a good mix of teaching styles that challenged both of us to seek God more. While we had been attending the previous church we didn’t experience the same encouragement and we had started to grow stagnant in our faith. While we are attending a new church we are also doing our best to stay in contact with those that we had gotten to know previously.

One of our favorite activities is taking our dog on hikes!

David is enjoying teaching  new Private Pilot students and he has three students (Jared, Andrew, and Graham) that he will be flying with from now till June. Instructing is a joy for him, but it is also a big learning curve to learn how to teach well. Pray that he is able to communicate with them well and that they would be diligent and ready to learn. 


Kirsten is also shifting back into flying mode. She just finished a few weeks of reviewing maintenance training, and a week of survival and first aid training, and now she is getting back into the plane to finish out her private pilot license! She is excited about flying again, but this section is mostly review of what she was taught last year and mid April she will be taking her Private Pilot exam and she is nervous about that momentous test. Pray that she would be able to quickly recall what she has learned and it would be a painless process.

I want to say thank you to everyone that responded so positively to us over the last two months! It was so encouraging to be able to meet with you and get to talk to all of you. The good news is that we have reached the minimum! Because of that David was able to start as full-time instruction staff with Moody Aviation! While we were able to raise the minimum amount of support, we are still looking for another $270 a month to meet our family budget, but for now we are trusting that the Lord will care for us in that small deficit. Another point of celebration is that the Lord has provided for the remainder of Kirsten’s school bill for this semester!
