Dunked at Decker

Well, this past Tuesday Beth was laid off from Decker College…along with the other 200 employees she was working with. The school is on the verge of bankruptcy and they are going under. They had a difficult time with keeping the grant money they received from the government to pay for the education of their man Title 4 students. Check out some articles that have made the news here and here.

Decker also was in the process of being sued by a group of students for not fulfilling their promise to provide job placement for graduates.

So, here we are, living off of the tremendous generosity of our fantastic family. Thank you so much!!!

The Lord has been very good to us in every way…providing for all of our needs and allowing a time that would normally be very high stress and hard on a young marriage to be a wonderful time for us to come together and become stronger. The Lord continues to take care of us and demonstrate His grace towards us.

The other day we sat at Panera Bread, Lee was studying and Beth was job hunting, and Beth watched a group of tiny little birds feasting on the scraps of bread someone had dropped. We were reminded of the Bible’s promise in Matthew 6: 25-28

“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?”

What an amazing passage about the faithfulness oat our great God and King. Look forward to upcoming good news about how He chooses to provide for us here in Louisville.

    Hey Lee and Beth. It is always a treat to get on the internet and see how you are doing. We miss you down here in College Station. So…we were thinking of having an upstream get together soon. Wanna come? I’ve been noticing some relatively cheap flights on the internet. Well we love you and continue to pray and thank God for you both.

    Lauren (Candace and Jess)…I think I can speak for them too.

    I am so proud of you two…and grateful that I see that you have new numbers…which explains why my call didn’t go through the other day…! It is neat and wonderful to see how the Lord is using what seems bad for your good, and His glory! I love y’all!
