Another Waiting Season

Its been like a game of red-light green-light! We can only go so far without the sale of our home at this point. Please continue to pray! We can make our plans but we trust the Lord has HIS timing in all the things and will direct our steps! We're trying not to be overwhelmed! Transition is challenging! Although we wait for a buyer, we are very busy in the meantime!

{ A Note to our donors using tax-deductible giving with ODE }

It has come to our attention that we should reiterate that when you send a check to Open Door Enterprises that you should not put our names on the check anywhere.

Please put a sticky note with our name on it in your envelope and continue to write your check to ODE. Send checks to:

Open Door Enterprises
P.O. Box 569
Van Vleck, TX 77482

Don't hesitate to reply to us here if you have any questions.



On that note – We want to invite you to come on this journey with us in faith and missions! Would you pray about joining our monthly support team? Our team has become like our family and we know they(many of you!) are there for us when we need a helping hand, whether to encourage our kids, for prayer, a phone call, and REALLY the Lord uses you in ways you will never fully know! And totally feel that we could not walk this road without the servants of the Lord by our side and in the spirit!
A financial commitment of $50-$100 a month is a normal giving amount for many of our donors and would be AH-MAZ-ING for you to join our family and the Kingdom going forth in this way!
Hit reply and let us know how the Lord is leading you to join us!


March was a blur! Wow! and yet...His grace is sufficient!

*In Corpus we met our new YWAM team! We're happy to get to know them better and join the vision of YWAM Ships Corpus Christi in due time!

*Israel had the opportunity to preach at Turning Point Church in Bay City, Tx. And get to know the new pastors! We are blessed to be apart of the body of Christ wherever we go! God is so faithful to keep us connected!
*Also, we got to see my(Leslie's) grandmother and celebrate her on her 89th birthday! She and Evey share a birthday week!
*Evey turned 15 years old on St. Patty's Day! We are blessed by this gifted and servant-hearted girl every day! We thank God for her!

Currently we are purging, organizing and preparing for the sale of our home and our newly-coming and full-time RV-life!
We appreciate your prayers during this transition! God is so faithful with grace and peace over us all to go through moving, again! The Lord is good in all He does in us, and thats sometimes painful, but perfecting us! (More on that in a blog, maybe!)

Thanks for reading, reaching out, and praying! 
love, the Bailey crew

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead..1 Peter 1:3

We can't leave out this birthday boy! He just turned the BIG 10! We celebrated in Franklin, Texas with friends and he was so blessed by a little surprise party with cake, gifts and swinging a stick at a pinata! God has given us such a gift in our son, Nate! This month was so rewarding to celebrate so many precious people in our lives!
