"We Walk By Faith, Not By Sight"

Cantwell RV "Park"-ing Lot
As we continue to head south, the weather has been great for traveling.  The sun keeps shining and there isn't too much wind though it's a bit chilly when we stop for a break.  We decided to spend a couple of days in an RV parking lot in Cantwell.  They call it an RV park, but that's definitely a "misnomer".  


As we were preparing to leave, the park owner mentioned that she was heading down to Homer for the winter.  She said it's a nice place to spend the winter, much warmer than Cantwell.  I quietly stored away another mention of Homer as this town has been brought up to us more than once.  


At this point, we feel the pressure of concern about the coming of winter even as we continue on in prayer seeking HIS Will and HIS provision in this matter.  We've been struggling with unbelief about staying in Alaska for the winter from the beginning.  It's just not a logical thing for full-time RV'er's to do, or so we think, as our thoughts tend to fly south.


Now that the time has come for us to settle in and prepare for that winter, we hear the roar of silence and we're left to wonder - did we hear wrong?  Our faith is on the line and the magnitude of what lies ahead of us hasn't escaped our imaginations.  We go back and forth from what HE has done for us in the past to the reassurance of HIS promises and yet, there's nothing to do at this point but watch and wait.  


After a brief respite in Cantwell, we head south to Wasilla to meet up with friends.  Even with the tension that we are struggling with, it's important to us to walk out our ministry and try to be an encouragement to others.  Sadly, our timing wasn't the best as our friends were out of town much of the time we were there.  We were able to share a wonderful meal with them on our last evening in Wasilla.  It was time to get back on the road and head south.
