Where We Are At...

"Where we are at" is a phrase that can elicit several questions. Physically: In what place are you? Mentally: What are you thinking? As it relates to a task (such as publishing this Bible study): Is the process still moving forward?

Physically we have been on quite a journey. First Carlene, and after a couple of months Greg, traveled to the USA. Since March, we have assisted and supported two of our sons as they immigrated back to the USA. While we were there, we also celebrated our other son's graduation and marriage. All of our children and families now reside in the USA. Therefore, at this time, Greg and I are officially "empty nesters" South Africa ...together.

Mentally: the changes in our children’s lives create questions for us that we can't answer. We love our work here, and we are excited for our children and where they are each at in life. We are taking each day as it comes and trusting the Lord to guide us in our life and relationships. We love life and people on both sides of the ocean and will endeavor to keep up with each one.

We are excited and enjoy the opportunities the Lord has given us to share and, we trust, to one day publish Redeeming Sexual Love ...By the Power of God's Plan. The basic manuscript is complete, and includes nineteen chapters. We are progressing through the editing process, and have spoken with a couple of people in the publishing world, in preparation for submitting a Bible study proposal. Right now we are still investigating which publisher, and the process of self-publishing. We have no idea of the costs involved. 

We are thankful for those who have expressed an interest in the study, and supporting us in various ways as we work toward publication. I have compiled a participant survey to include in our initial submissions to publishers. The answers to these questions, are from individuals with whom we have had the pleasure of sharing life journeys by working through the study.

In view of the possibility that you might enjoy reading these questions and responses, I have published it on this blog site. You can find it in the "Redeeming Sexual Love Index" to the right of this post.

Thank you once again for your encouragement and support. We are trusting that God will guide us through the steps, providing continued direction and resources along the way.
