Whew!

We've been back home for the past two weeks, and have had to hit the ground running! First, we moved from one side of Aiken to another. Our landlord, who has been such a blessing to us since January by letting us go month-to-month at a very low rate, needed his place again, so the Lord provided another place we were able to get at a 3-month lease just before our CSU trip!
One difference is that the new place was unfurnished, and we gave away some furniture before leaving California, stored a lot (most) of it in Florida, and had been staying in a furnished home. So we had to buy a few things in the last couple of weeks just to avoid sitting on crates and using spools (see images) for tables like in college.








We also have a new nephew! Our sister-in-law, April Eckburg, gave birth to Scout River Eckburg, 8lbs. 6oz, on Tuesday, Aug. 9th. Both Mom and baby are doing great today, but April suffered internal bleeding following the Caesarean-Section and had to have a second surgery. We'll try to get pictures up soon of John, April, Tessa, Tyler and Scout.

Please pray during this back-to-school time that we'd be able to gain lots of new appointments (and partners)! We are now (gratefully and prayerfully) expecting the Lord to wrap this up soon and we are wanting to be diligent!

We will be working on a new prayer letter to catch our ministry partners up with our experiences in Colorado and since returning.

Jerry, you're awesome!

Thanks so much for your encouragement and prayers. We obviously need 'em. We're still in God's character development program in the backside of the desert!

Love you, bro!
Mike
