OCTOBER 2022 will go down in our history of one FULL of God's fingerprints!
From the start of the process of buying a house in a crazy-market, to this moment that I get to tell you that WE ARE IN our house in Corpus Christi Texas! As I sit and ponder it, it seems like a million tiny miracles!

The Bible tells us over and over to REFLECT on those miracles or blessings...
Psalm 103...and forget not all His benefits.
Psalm 103:11 He removes our sins...
Psalm 103:13 He has shown compassion to His children, those who fear Him.
Psalm 105... and make known His deeds among the people!...Remember the wondrous works that he has done...

 Psalm 118 Oh give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, His steadfast love endures forever!
Philippians 4:8 Think on the things! That are true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable and praiseworthy!
2 Peter 3:9 He is patient towards us...

May we be seen and found reflecting often on ALL He has done!
May we not be slack lest we put down our weapons of warfare in the face of the enemy, like the "men of Ephraim"...they "refused to live by God's law" why? "They forgot what He has done, the wonders He has shown them."
(Psalm 78)
May we share with our children the things that God does in our every-day-lives! So, that they too will be built in faith and trust in our Almighty God! We are then passing down who He is to the next generation! (Psalm 78)

We pray - He answers - again and again! In one way or another God has done it! By His great grace alone..
*The tiny travel trailer sold quickly!
*The house purchase went through!
*We have all the furniture we need through friends and family and               Facebook marketplace, free or cheap!
*Our metal shed was moved successfully by a local small business, half the price we originally thought it would cost!
*The girls and I (Leslie) were able to attend the Chayil Women's Conference with my mom in Crosby, Texas as planned! It was a BLESSED time! 
*The big travel trailer is safe in a storage unit locally - and at half price (until it sells! Interested? Email me!)
*Our family is happier and settling in quickly! 
*The DTS continues and is doing well!
(pics below!)
*AND lastly and MOST surprising, God gave us the opportunity to check out a sailboat. Israel drove to Roscoe, TX last week to see it. The Lord orchestrated and moved in ways that leave us speechless! So, he brought it home Saturday! In short, it was FREE! Minor repairs needed and paint of course, but the hull looks good! This story will go into the future blog about this season of God-sends and divine appointments. God knew our need in YWAM Ship CCTX for a training vessel! He knew our willingness to take on this project and in His perfect timing, we should have it ready for SONS School 2023 to use for training! HOW EXCITING IS THAT??

Many things are right around the corner as this busy season continues!
We are prepping another trip to the children's home in Mexico, and this time the girls and I will get to go with Israel and the church team!
We appreciate your support for these trips and for investing in the ministry here in Corpus Christi.
Thank you for all your many prayers, they are heard by our faithful Father.

We are praying for you as well! If you have something going on that needs prayer, please don't hesitate to let us know how we can join in prayer.

May God's presence overwhelm your lives faith-fam, as you remember where He has brought you from and how He blesses you every single day.

In His grace, The Bailey crew
