If I thought May was going to be a whirlwind of activity I don’t even know what to say about June!  So many things happen every day it’s hard to keep track of them all.  Tia is at home with us now,  which is a blessing and a half considering all that we’ve done and all that needs to be done!

We’ve been spending our days cleaning out the house, selling items that won’t be going with us to Hawaii, preparing for yard sales, and our move at the end of the month to stay with our good friends the Gaunavinaka family. We’ve been amazed to see how faithfully the Lord is providing for us as we do our part in preparing to leave at the end of July.  His faithfulness abounds and His mercies are new every morning!


Our yard sale on the 9th of June was a great success, thank you to everyone who donated items!  It’s truly amazing to watch the Lord work, and to see His body being a part of what He’s doing.

The comfiest bed in the world, for sale.

That being said we still have some things to sell and another yard sale happening this Saturday the 16th, 8 am to 2.  Come out and see us 🙂

Our BBQ fundraiser will be on June the 23rd, we are looking forward to a great day of volleyball, good food and fellowship.  (The date changed because we didn’t want to interfere with a rugby tournament on the same day!) The BBQ will be at Rincon Valley Community Park, starting at noon and each plate is $20.00. Let us know if you can make it (or if you’d like to donate to the BBQ itself.)

The boys are enjoying Vacation Bible School at the Lutheran Church next door, swim lessons and a lot of staying up late.  Naca has decided that it’s about time to be walking and is slowly but surely mastering this new skill; he’s so amazing.  Joshua said to me today, “Let’s get to Hawaii already!”, which I thoroughly enjoyed hearing and totally agreed with!  Step by Step.

There is so much joy in the journey, watching our Father work, the rest and assurance of walking in obedience, and stepping out of the boat.  It’s both exhilarating and exhausting, and the heat doesn’t help either.  It will be a relief to have it only be in the 80’s when we get to Kona!  How fun is that?

A big thank you to our family and awesome friends who are giving so much during this time to help our family, to encourage, support and lift us up.

We couldn’t do it without you and we don’t want to! We love you all.

Set a fire down in our souls, that we can’t contain, that we can’t control; we want more of you God!

Tia, Haley, and the Yum Yum Stand Boys
