We arrived in Oregon!
Thank you all who prayed us through— state by state! We prayed through each state over the five day journey and became even more aware of God’s longing to revive our nation.
Your prayers gave us passage! We had challenges but each challenge was met with a quick solution. From a nail in our tire only one block from a tire store open late on a Sunday to a gas leak two hundred miles from our final destination which held until we arrived (had it happened sooner we would have been delayed for days). Each “problem” faced had a simple and almost immediate solution and we credit that to all the prayers going up for us along the way. Thank you so much!!
We signed the papers on our new home with only seeing four photos and looking at some aerial views on google maps. We felt that the Lord said this was the house and how right he was (as always)! It’s the perfect home and neighborhood for our family— just perfect!
Though we’ve only been here a few days now, we worked hard to set up our kitchen and living room area. Everything else is in boxes because née carpet is being installed on Wednesday. It’s good to have a couple of rooms that feel like “home.” We had sold all of our furniture in the East, therefore— on our long drive I spent many hours on FB Marketplace looking for furniture and arranging pick ups. Honestly, every piece has been perfect for the house— just perfect! Our home in the DC region was elegant but this home is homey and far more “us.” Isn’t God good?!
On a separate note, I began to have some health issues come up throughout this move as we bridge East and West. My lungs developed something that was increasingly distressing. I was coughing terribly and my lungs were so constricted that I couldn’t talk more than a few words at a time. Once we arrived in Oregon I felt a terrible pressure on my chest that made it even harder to breathe and was causing dizziness. I spent over four hours in the ER on Saturday to get it checked out but it was so busy that I finally left without being seen. On Sunday, our church here in Portland, prayed for me and although I was home resting— the pressure lifted and my breathing feels normal again. I still have extreme fatigue so I will get checked out by a doctor here. Will you join me in praying for my lungs and heart or whatever was impacted? Thank you!
There is a lot of spiritual activity in both the DC region and the Portland, Oregon area— therefore, to say “yes” to both areas can create some unusual warfare, even against our physical bodies. We are declaring that “no weapon that the enemy has formed against us will be allowed to prosper!” We are also declaring that over all of you and your families!
Once again, thank you for carrying us in prayer through a very intense month and a half. We have seen the hand of God move us into miraculous sudden transitions that could never happen this quickly without his hand and his grace to see us through.
If you are in a transition, leave me a message and we will pray the same favor and wind of his Spirit upon you as we have experienced since June 1st. Of course there have been challenges along the way but there has been divine wisdom and sovereign answers as we posture ourselves in trust. The key is to respond to God rather than to react to the challenge or battle. This posture will keep you from becoming entangled in the snare that the enemy set for you. You will remain at peace in the refuge of the Almighty.
Please continue to pray over our health, family and for the ministry base in the DC region and our home base here in the Portland region to be established. This weekend we will be hosting leaders from Washington DC in Portland— establishing Isaiah 54 in our nation.
With Gratitude and Love,
Jeffrey & Kathi Pelton
