But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides. So do not worry or be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will have worries and anxieties of its own. Sufficient for each day is its own trouble. Matthew 6:33-34

Dear Ones,

It looks like the enemy is working overtime to try to discourage us. While God has been working to get us to Kwidzyn, Poland, Satan has been busy making things harder every step of the way.  Suitcases that are too big, sick children, more things to do than humanly possible, and so on....However, when we ask God to show us Himself and increase our faith, we never know exactly how He'll do it. God keeps showing Himself…Here are a few ways we've enjoyed watching Him increase our faith....
 
  • Last Friday's yard sale was a blessing in so many way…watching Meredith's parents pitch in with a lot of physical help was sweet and meeting new people as they came to shop and hearing their encouragement of our journey was inspiring.  One woman shared with us how all of her jeans were wearing out. Earlier in the week she had gone to Goodwill to purchase some "new" ones.  On a tight budget as a self-employed person, she couldn't spend the $6.99 (plus tax) on a used pair of jeans.  By her testimony, God led her to our yard sale where she found at least 3 pairs of jeans that she believed would fit….for 50 cents each!  She said, "Isn't it amazing how God provides for us when we trust Him?"  Amen!
 
  • After the yard sale, there were a few "big ticket" items for left over, so w promptly put them on Craigslist.  We had a few responses to one ad, but not much else.  I watched God at work as I sold 3 of the 4 items within 2 days to people we knew!  One item went to the single response we had on Craigslist…and one item sold within 5 minutes of publishing on Craigslist and sharing on Facebook.  This amazes us as these weren't really "hot" items we were selling….We don't believe any of this was coincidental" or "good luck."  The God of the Universe is over all and truly can show people the right thing at the right time and even inspire the purchase!
Please continue to pray for....
  • Our preparations...packing and cleaning
  • Health to return to the sick kids
  • Strength and good sleep for all
  • Safety in travel...6 more "sleeps" till we leave!
  • Those in Poland we are blessed to be ministering to and for!
As always....more information is available at www.boonesnews.com
Last week, I was also encouraged by a young man of 7 from our home schooling support group.  When I went to talk with his mom about something, she pulled a bill out of her wallet and gave it to him with that quiet "mom-voice" telling him something.  He gave me the five dollar bill with the words, "It's for Poland."  His mom then shared that he had hosted a cookie/craft & lemonade stand the weekend before and all of the nickels, dimes and quarters he had received had equaled five dollars.  He told his mom, "I want this to be for the Boones for Poland."  His giving heart is profoundly gratifying and a reminder that no gift goes unrecognized by the Giver of all gifts to us.  I'm pretty sure God smiled as much as this young man's mother and I.

Gifts continue to come in.  We are praising God that we are now at 94%!  We continue to trust Him, knowing that He will provide all that we need (not what we think we need, but what HE KNOWS we need.) Thank you for being a part of this provision!
Our address in Poland…(in case you want to surprise our sweet Paisley with a birthday card.  She'll be 14 on the 28th -- just 2 days after we arrive in Poland.)
