Back in the Office, back to work, back to School

Greeting [NECC] Nation,

Keelah and I are sitting at our dining room table working on the calendar for this year. Quite a daunting task. Today we visited a local daycare center for Jared to spend a few days a week. That went pretty well, and we are considering all of our options. Linea and Noah have returned to school and are getting settled into their routines. And Chips is chewing happily on a bone beside me after successfully sitting, laying down, and staying on command!! Yeah Chips!

God has been especially gracious to us today. Most of you may know that we are in the middle of a campaign to raise $52,000.00 for the down payment on the final mortgage for Paul and LaRue Soyster's House and Property which Keelah and I know reside in with our family. One of the options for us to explore was to sell a piece of land 5 acres at the very back of our property. We posted the property on Craigslist and in two days had an interested buyer. Partly excited at the prospects of a buyer in today's market and partly sad that we might part with some of NECC's Land. However this past weekend the buyers decided they didn't want to pursue the land any more and all discussions came to a halt. Today Keelah and I went to the mailbox and opened the mail to find a very generous donation of $10,000.00 from a great supporter of NECC. So when God closes a door he opens a window! We are very encouraged by this and know that God is going to provide the $52,000.00 we need. We are at about $35,000.00 leaving us with about only $17,000.00 to go. So all you out there in [NECC] Nation need to continue to pray for God's blessing as we inch closer and closer to our goal.

Well, back to calendar planning. Thanks for listening tonight.

Glad the tomb was empty,
Keelah and Tai
