Choosing to trust in Him completely ~

So the lastest news that we have is that we will be moving sometime after Christmas! God brought in an additional 18% of the support that we need and provided our house!
It feels almost surreal that we are now in the final stages of raising our initial support. We are tired.... Yet through it all we feel encouraged and ready to run the race to the finish with endurance. Hebrews 12:1
Here is our October Prayer Letter. http://www.corbinlife.com/CorbinNews0910-web.pdf
Thank you for your prayers!

We spent our first night in Pensacola, then drove to Louisiana, and then to Texas. After a week of meeting with new people across these 3 states we headed to Oklahoma and have been here for the last 2 weeks. God continues to open new doors. We have gained 15% of the support that we need to move.
So our newest information to share is that we are going to be "house hunting" when we head to Arkansas on October 11th. We will stay in Arkansas for about a week and a half to find a home and meet with people there. We will also spend one day at FamilyLife taking care of all of the details related to our upcoming move.
I would love to share a story of a recent encounter with a potential ministry partner. When we contacted this family the husband later admitted that he was not all that enthusiastic to learn of our call and that they had agreed to give a special gift to our ministry. When we arrived at their house he was off at work and we were excited to meet his wife and adorable children. Within minutes he walked in the door of their home having been called home by some men that were working on their house. He joined us as we shared our calling to FamilyLife and then he began to share with us.....he began to tell us that from the time he decided to give the gift to us that God had been urging him to do more. He marveled at the chain of events that brought us into his home and how he "by chance" ended up coming home from work. He stated that seeing God orchestrate all of these details confirmed what he had been feeling in his spirit. They wanted to be a part of what God has called us to do! On this day another family joined us in ministry!
The exciting part for us was the reminder that God was working on our behalf long before we got into the car that morning. This morning as we joined my grandparents at their home church we listened to the pastor share about Joshua. He took the time to remind us that God is already working on our behalf. Whatever the need.....he is already ahead of us. Preparing the road for our journey.
"Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon....have I given unto you..." ~Joshua 1:3
Please continue to pray for each of us. We will be on the road for about 3 more weeks. Our specific needs are listed below.
- Safe travels.
- Health for each of us.
- Favor and guidance as we seek the remaining people that God is calling to our team.
- Wisdom as we look for our new home in Arkansas.
Love to you all~

Our news: Michael's replacement has been named. This week completed the "new guy's" second week of training. So, if all goes as planned, next week will be Michael's last week of commuting to Georgia. These weeks have been mixed with emotions of excitement and sadness. So much excitement regarding answering God's call, and yet sadness to leave such precious people behind in Georgia. God truly blessed our family with the Robinsons and SignPros! What precious, Godly people. Please join us in praying for their family and business as they move forward without Michael.
This coming Sunday we will be singing a song in choir titled, "With Every Chance". The words are:

- We KNOW that God has called us to work for him.
- We KNOW that the road looks long and hard.
- We KNOW based on the miracles of the past that HE will continue to work on our behalf.
- We KNOW that God continues to order our steps and in his timing we will continue to work for him as he directs.
Years ago (I won't tell you how long ago due to concerns over making us sound really old...) we were attending a young married's Sunday School class. One bright Sunday morning our teacher urged us to go home and work together on picking out a "family scripture". This would be a scripture verse that fit our family and that we would hold on to in good times or bad as we clung to God's word. We carefully chose: Proverbs 3:5 & 6. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight." (NIV) It is amazing how this one scripture has meant so many different things to us over the years. So now as we look at the road ahead, we are trusting in HIM and knowing that he will make our paths straight. One step at a time!

Team Mischief - aka "Snow Angels"
Naomi Anaiah was delighted to play in the snow! This was the first snow that she remembers!
Gabriel Micaiah was all boy in his approach to the snow. In this picture he was showing me how he can catch snow on his tongue. He also loves to "snowball" anyone in sight.....

So, not only do we want to challenge you to "Love like you mean it" all year long, but what a great reminder that God is in the business of "Raising Dead Things!" Maybe it is your marriage, maybe your personal prayer life, maybe your relationship with your kids.....He wants to heal and raise you - where you need it!
If you are interested in attending a Weekend to Remember Conference. Please visit http://www.familylife.com/ and as always, if we can pray with you or help you in anyway, please contact us.
