The Big News

Phil just talked with the detailer this morning and she will be drawing up orders for us very soon! The plans are to head to Little Creek, Virginia for Phil to be stationed on the USS Swift (HSV-2) in August. The orders will be for 3 1/2 years. Here is an idea of the ship:



You can see more at the ship's website: http://www.cmwc.navy.mil/Swift/default.aspx

As much as we're not terribly excited about going to Virginia again, we're really excited about this ship and are feeling good about heading out that way for now. Please be praying for us as these moves take a lot of planning and preparation! We'll probably be listing the house as soon as it starts to get a little warmer here so please be praying for that as well! If you have any questions, feel free to email us or put a comment on here and I'll get back to you. This is all very breaking news so we'll be learning about it all right along beside you!

The swift is awesome! It had a port call in Gaeta when we were still in Italy. There's a plus about moving to VA too. You'll be closer to us. :D Not to mention all the other folks that are there from the Lighthouse. I can't wait to hear the next update. I'll be praying for you guys.

May God help you sell your home quickly and receive maximum money possible, may God open the doors for a new home that will fit your every need.
