Boats and Dreams

Kim’s turn to write
The first sentence is always the hardest. We believe that you really care and can only guess that if we sat down for coffee, you would ask how we are doing. Overall, we live mostly in hope.  We are standing in what Jesus said and commanding this sickness to go. We enjoy each other and catch ourselves laughing and then crying. We seek to draw out the thoughts of the heart and honour wherever each is at while inviting to truth and life.  At this moment though, we are all feeling quite vulnerable and tired.  Things that would normally be simple can be overwhelming – like our yard work this morning.

Many smiles and ahhh’s came from the last two days when we spent time on a boat in Kalamalka Lake and at our friends’ pool.  Here’s a video and a pic of the boat ride.  Being near God’s creation brings perspective and refreshment.

During our last prayer time, our friends blessed Jordan to receive revelation through dreams. That night, he had a vivid dream in a medieval setting where two giants were overwhelming a fortress until one archer, who just would not quit, began counterattacking. Just before awakening, Jordan witnessed the main giant wavering. God spoke to Jordan in his language and in a way that encouraged him to be tenacious.  And for that, we are very thankful.
