Wedding gown update and dollar scare

The Bride of the Year went to the city yesterday, and visited the one and only bridal shop in a town of a half a million.
Good news, they don't sell ready-to-wear dresses, you pick a model and they sew it up for you! That means that Bride got herself the coveted 3/4 length sleeves and no worry about showing cleavage. And the thing is only going to cost 150.o0 dollars. Hooray! Not that this has a thing to do with me, but she is my own daughter in the faith, and I am happy for her.

Now, here is where we must put our money (literally) where our mouth is. the dollar has continued to drop reaching 10-year lows. That means that we have 40% less buying power than we had 5 years ago. 40%!!!!!!
WE BELIEVE that God is faithful.
WE BELIEVE that God will provide.

OK, we might panic and little, and we might complain a little, but it will be wrong to do so, and we will repent and never do it again.

Waiting for the Rapture,

I'm so glad the bride found the perfect place to get her custom gown, I'm sure she'll be beautiful.

Oh yea the dollar, what a mess. We are feeling the pinch too. Good thing we just got back from furlough, we were able to raise a little.

Some people say it's gonna come back up, but I don't think so. I think something has to happen to help push in a one-world currency, who knows maybe this is the beginning.

I'm with you about the complaining, why should we, our Father owns the cattle on a 1000 hills.

Sure have enjoyed your posts!

Thank you, Tori! I know that all missionaries are feeling the pinch!

Oh my I read somewhere else someone saying that the dollar is troubled and she was thinking of investing in gold or something.

I will pray for you and other missionaries.
