Babione Home on Wheels
Organized by: R.C. and Bridget Babione
EVENT DATE Aug 15, 2015
We are R.C. and Bridget Babione, with our four children, Caleb 16, Joshua 14, Isaac 11, and Micaiah 9. We have spent the last year being trained by Milt and Mary Rodriguez to plant churches, and have helped plant a church in central California and two in Southern California. When we began this part of our journey we weren't sure how long the training season would last or if we would even be sent out to plant churches when it was over. Well, the time has come and now we know. By the Lord's leading, and confirmed through other Saints, we will be sent to plant a church in TX the beginning of September.
*UPDATE August* "The mind of man plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps." Folks, we planned our way (raise money for a bigger trailer), but the Lord is directing our steps ("I'll give you a bigger trailer; now raise money for a bigger truck.").
We have been blessed with a 5th wheel trailer beyond our wildest imagination; it meets our desires of not having to crawl over each other to get in and out of bed in the master and not having to make down the dining table into a bed every night. Although the giver has also offered to move the trailer for us when we need it moved from one church plant to another (beyond generous and humbling, btw), we still need the ability to move it more frequently when needed (from one park or property to another while at one plant, to visit churches and saints between plants, to get away for a quick break between plants, etc.).
So, this is now shifting from the "Home" part of the "Babione Home on Wheels" to the "Wheels" part. We are asking for a little more to help with going from Big Hauler to Bigger Hauler. We don't need as much, and our end date is still the same. We can't thank enough those of you who have already given. It is humbling when the Lord's work results in personal blessing. Thank you. Thank you so much.
*UPDATE July* Because we only stay with a church for 6-12 months, it is nice to just take our home with us, instead of having a new home at every location. We have sold our trailer, Tiny Camper, for $9000. The Lord is moving a little quicker than we expected, but it's all in His timing and not ours. We're excited for this new season, and we're looking ahead to see what He may have in store for our family of six regarding a new home.
Also through the Lord's leading, we are asking for help. If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you so much for giving!
