    2...........Marcellus,NY
    3-4........Taunton,NY
    5...........Atlanta,GA
    6-9........Zweibruecken, Germany
    10..........Winston-Salem, NC
    11..........Hopewell, Va
    12-15.....Zweibruecken, Germany
    16..........Copperas Cove, Tx
    17-18......Wildflecken, Germany
    19...........Mainz, Germany
    20...........Copperas Cove, Tx
    21...........Bluestem, Tx
    22...........Ft Richardson, Ak
    23...........Dallas, Tx
    24...........Syracuse, NY
    25...........Lake City, GA
    26-27......Syracuse, NY
    28...........Minoa, NY
    29...........Princeton, WV
    30...........Baldwinsville, NY
    31...........Syracuse, NY

    Wow, this is much tougher, I've lived in many towns, and sometimes more than one home in a town.

    23 homes in 13 towns.

    Only 22 so far, in Virginia, North Carolina, Wisconsin, and Kentucky. Back and forth between several states several times.

    We are still renting so there will be a few more before we're done. I have moved 11 times in the past 9 years.

    Think I will stick to country because I have been quite mobile:

    London, England
    The tube and houses
    Llanelli, Wales
    Toronto, Canada,
    Korea, foxholes
    Manitoba
    Saskatchewan
    Quebec
    Alberta
    New Brunswick
    Nova Scotia
    Chicago, Ill
    back to Ontario

    I've lived in houses, residence, underground, foxholes, tents and open air......can't count all the places.

    Cheers,

    Jim

    We started the process of moving into our latest home in Hingham, WI over the weekend. Hope to get a lot more moved next weekend when our new church gets on board and helps us transfer our stuff our of storage and into the home.

    Another rental, so we have the potential of moving again if the property sells, but that's the way it goes. For now, it is one of the better homes we have had (best was our brand new home that we sold to pursue ministry -- as my wife said when we left our home, pool, workshop, gardens, and most of our old life, "It is just stuff...").

    Great to be back in the pulpit. I've been off for about 8 years. God is at work! We waited for His clear call instead of just shotgunning a resume out there and hoping for the best. After years, I've found that when God calls it works out so much better than when I just decide. Didn't even know about or want this church until God showed us that He was leading us here. Then, it turns out (that I didn't even remember until after we were there) that I had been there once before and that They had been praying for us for years. That's how a sovereign God works!
