“It shall come to pass that before they call, I will answer; And while they are still speaking, I will hear. Isaiah 65:24 (NKJV)

Jehovah-Jireh – God Provides!! We have been reminded once again how God provides for our needs. God has given us the desire to move near the home office. The list of things that needed to happen to move was simply overwhelming. How or where do you even start? God was already preparing that answer. Brian’s parents have made many trips to help fix up our house to sell. We have also had 8 other adults labor alongside of our family. We know that God is behind all of this and we know we could not have done it on our own and we are grateful.

As we defined our dream home to buy in Michigan we came up with our list of desires. We found a house that would work and they accepted the offer but the inspection failed and we pulled our offer. We were extremely disappointed. And then God did what only God can do. A house was coming on the market that was within a ½ mile of the CBM office. We heard about it on Thursday, our realtor looked at it Friday and highly recommended we look at it Saturday. We traveled to Michigan to walk through the house, put in an offer that night and they accepted. This property passed inspection and while it isn’t perfect, it’s better than our dream house.

While on deputation, God also provided a young man who volunteered his time to help us update our website. After many hours of work the website is finally updated. Please check it out at: www.thekruegfam.com.
