That's about how things have been going. Dru just found out today that she will be receiving 9/10 time instead of the 7/10 she was originally given a contract for. What a blessing that is. We also made a deal on a four year old washer and dryer set yesterday. I think we got a good price for them considering what they cost new.
Thank you to all of you who have been praying for us. If you could please continue to pray that would be great. Dru and I are in the process of finding a home church. Fun but stressful at the same time. Since Dru is a P.K. and I went wherever my folks went and just came out of working for a church, we have never really "searched" for a home church on our own before.
The first week we were here we went to a local mega church because Dru was feeling stressed and just wanted to blend in. The worship was great, but I expected that. The entire stage was decorated as a backyard complete with grass, a picket fence, a full house mock up, even lawn bean bags and a tire swing. The message was ok. Not incredibly deep but good nonetheless.
This past week we went to the local Free Methodist church in town. I have never been to a Free Methodist church. From what I can gather, the Free Methodist church is the more conservative of the Methodists. They still ordain women and all that good stuff, but their appears to be more of a "God and Country" theme going on. I actually enjoyed worship somewhat. They had a band but were singing Twila Parris songs. (Mom, you would have loved it.) The sermon was very good. Something to munch if you know what I mean. I don't know that we will go back. I got a copy of the doctrine and don't completely line up with all of their core doctrines. It was a very good church though and the Minister of Students even stopped in while we were doing laundry at the laundry mat last night. That was nice. I think the main reason why we won't be going back is because the dude is from Michigan. He actually said, and I quote, "I bleed blue." AAAHHHHH!!! Run away!!! What else can I say?
So, how would you guys go about finding a church? Dru and I really aren't partial to any particular denomination. We know that the music will be better at a large but we just don't know if we are large church people. We know that the community will be great in a small country church, but we don't know if we are small country church people. This is hard. What do we do? Please Help!

The Big Move
The truck was sixteen feet long and to be honest with you I was scared that not everything was going to fit, but since Mitch is a master packer(watch it) we got it all in. Dru, Jake, Dan and I headed to Saint Louis after stopping at a local Arbey's for lunch. (Of course you can't really consider it lunch at 3:30 in the afternoon.)
We arrived at Dru's parents a little before 9. I think. To be honest with you it's all a blur. Donna had din din waiting so we scarfed that down, unloaded the furniture that wasn't going with us, sat up and talked to Mustoe until 1 in the morning then went to bed. Because we went to bed so late we weren't out of there until 9:30 in the morning. I decided that I was ok with that and let it go. (Typically, I like to leave early in the morning.)
Dan and Jake are studs. I don't know if you knew that but they are. We had the entire truck unloaded in about 2 and a half hours. It was great. (This is the funnny part.) Since Dan and Jake so graciously gave of their time to help Dru and I move we planned on renting them a car for their return trip. I honestly didn't think that it would be over $250. Perhaps a little pre-trip research would have done some good. If you plan on renting a car for a one way trip from state to state...DON'T! They want to charge us the cost of the rental plus (dun dun dun) $700 bones. That's right, a dollar per mile on top of the car rental. Well, to make a long story even longer, we were able to find them each a plane ticket from Louisvile (about 45 minutes away) to Kansas City for $116.00. Can't beat that.
Our town home is awesome and we picked up a four year old queen size bed for $100 bucks, box springs and all. Don't hesitate to call, we've got a place for you to stay anytime.
I'll have more a little later. Bye the way, I am going to be publised on TheOoze. That's exciting. They are going to use two posts...The Ins and Outs...and...I'm Tired. Check them out.
