HI From the Beach

Hello Everyone,

So, we went to the beach today.  The first beach we went to was very pretty and we were having a wonderful time.  Then a nice man came and told us that the water was polluted! and that we needed to get the little children out of it right away!!   So, we asked around and found this!!!


 Isn't it beautiful!!!     It was AMAZING!!!   We had a few miner injures, but on a whole everyone had a great time.   The surf was pretty high.    It knocked Mom and Devin off their feet.  They're ok, a little banged up, but thankfully not to bad.   They might be sore tomorrow though.    But they both said it was still awesome. :)
 






Always,
       Sarah

Where in the World are the WARRENS...

Good Morning from PUERTO RICO!!!!

I know that Sarah wrote yesterday and told you all about our trip here to PR, but I thought some of you might be interested in seeing what our house looks like.  So, here are some pictures of the amazing place the Father has provided for us!  Enjoy!

This is the great kitchen we will be using for the next month

Our amazing outdoor seating area

Is this beautiful or what!?!?  Anybody ready for a swim?

How about this view!

This is the house!  We are so blessed to be here!
We are beginning to get started on preparations for Shabbat.  We pray that all of you have a wonderful Shabbat and weekend!  Talk to you next week!!!  SHALOM from PUERTO RICO!!!

Shalom,

And we're off again!!

Hey Everyone,
It's been awhile since our last post and a lot has happened! It looks like the Warrens are on the move again.  :)   This time we decided to go a little bit bigger.  We are moving to...Puerto Rico!!    The plane ride was crazy.  I'm sure after checking our 18th bag the lady at the counter was wondering, "who are these people". 




  Surprisingly enough, it all went very smooth.  And with 8 adults, 3 children, 2 dogs, 38 bags, 2 strollers and 3 car seats that is beyond incredible.    Once we checked our bags it was time for security.
This is just our carry-on bags.
 

  I could make up some crazy story to liven things up, but I won't.   It went great, a few pat downs, but with the way we look who can blame them. :)  Once through security we had 3 hours to blow before our flight.   After getting some food and charging all of our computers it was finally time to board our first plane.   We were finally on our way, we were moving!   It's funny because even though I've moved a crazy number of times, this time was different.  It is our first move that we needed to fly to get there.   We are all so excited!  






  Our first flight was so smooth, I mean this captain could fly!  One of the best landing's I've ever had.   After landing in Fort Lauderdale,  we waited for the strollers to come off the plane. Only one did.  😒 After talking to a lady that did not seem to want to help us, we concluded that it was lost.  Hoping it would somehow make it to Aguadilla we left and found our next gate.  At this point we had 3 more hours to blow before our flight to Aguadilla, Puerto Rico.   This time was spent trying to find a way to take the dogs on a walk without going out of security, not an easy mission.   We finally put paper down in a back hallway and let them go there.   Unconventional but it worked :).    Time actually seemed to go by rather fast, and it was time to board our next and last flight.    This flight was not as smooth but at no fault of the pilot, we hit some turbulence and were shaken up a bit but everything leveled off for landing.   We were there!  We had made it! Yes, it was two in the morning and all the kids were tired and crabby, and we had lost a stroller on the way, but we were finally there and it was an amazing feeling.   Everyone was so nice.  The man with our rental house was there to show us the way to the house (I guess it's pretty hard to find it at first) and he was so nice.   After renting our two cars, one being a very small suv and the other, an even smaller sedan, our very tired eyes panned over to our gigantic pile of luggage and everyone realized we needed another car. 



  So with our three rent cars and Candeleria's ( that's the name of the caretaker for the house we rented) we were off.   The house was everything we imagined!  Five bedrooms, three baths and a swimming pool.  The yard has the biggest avocado tree with the biggest avocados you've ever seen!   The view is like a post card, and the courtyard is beautiful!  After getting to the house at 3:30 in the morning, we just crashed.  Getting up the next morning was hard, but worth it.   Perfect weather and everyone very excited about checking out Rincon (that's the town our house is in) before Yom Kippur.   We were all very hungry, so food was first priority.   After finding out that the restaurant Abby had found for us was closed on Wednesday, we ended up at a grocery store looking for food.   Let's just say shopping is going to be different down here.   First, almost everything is in Spanish and everything is more expensive, but it was still lots of fun.






   After loading up our cart and checking out, we headed to the Little Caesars pizza just down the road, then back to the house.   The pizza was amazing, but maybe it was because we were all starving.   Then we all went swimming!  Hard to think how a day could be much better.                                                                              
                                                                                     Always,                                                                                      
                                                                                                                            Sarah

Life is FULL of changes...and its GREAT!!

Good Morning from Colorado!!  There has been so much change in our lives this last year that I don't really know where to start!  THE BEGINNING!!  That's where we will start...

As of October of last year we announced that Dayton and Abigail were pregnant!  We were so excited, but this post needs to go back in time a bit.

If you have read any of this blog, you will know that we bought a farm in 2010 in Oklahoma.  WELL, we are no longer on that farm and the story behind that is very long.  We truly enjoyed being on the farm and the guys were beginning to finish the house.  We were living in a bus and Barrett and Devin and Sar were living in the 5th wheel.  It was nice being close to extended family and the sunsets were amazing!!  We had wonderful long-term plans for the farm and then the Father made it abundantly clear that we are not to get too settled anywhere!

Now, first off, I would like to say that I understand that our family looks a bit different and maybe we act a bit different (homechurch, homeschool, etc.), but we really are just a family trying to follow the Father the best that we know how!  It is with a sad heart that I must say some of our neighbors were uneasy with us.  Yes, someone in that area called the State of Oklahoma and the things they said about us were very unbecoming, to say the least.  The agent from the State was very kind, but made it very clear that he would get more calls about us.  He even said that he was embarrassed to be there.  He realized as soon as he got to the farm that the things he had been told about us were not true, but we had to understand that there were people in the area that were not comfortable with us being there.

Well, it was time for a family meeting!!!  PRONTO!!  We were really torn!  Do we leave and have to start over somewhere else or do we stay knowing that we are not wanted there?  The verse in Matthew 10:14 kept coming to mind.  "If you are not received, then when you depart from that house or city, you should shake off the dust of your feet."  Well, that is what our family decided to do.  We left our farm and that area and that state!  The Father made it all happen!   Our business in Oklahoma sold quickly and the farm rented incredibly fast and He opened doors in Colorado.  The guys bought a business in Colorado and it is running smoother and better than the one in Oklahoma ever did!  We have been so blessed here in Colorado!  I am sad to say that we are accepted better by non-believers up here than by our fellows believers in the Bible Belt of Oklahoma!  We (our family) as followers of the Messiah Yahushua (Jesus),  who have been bought with His blood, and trust in Him for our eternal salvation, have more in common with those folks in Oklahoma than with the people who have accepted us in Colorado, but sadly the enemy (satan) blinded them to that just because we look a little different and don't go to the local church!  It makes me ponder the verse in  John 13:35.  "By this shall all men know that you are my disciples, if you have love one to another."  It really is a sad statement when those who call themselves believers have no love for other believers!

 WHEW!!!  Ok, that is the short version of all the things that happened.  The Father has brought us to an amazingly beautiful place and life is GREAT!!  We are so grateful for His love and guidance!

I am sorry for not keeping up to date on the blog, but I had to take time to pray and seek the Father on whether He wanted me to continue this way of communication.  Well, here I am!  My prayer is that all of you have peace where you live and that the Father will lead you in all His ways!!

I will be posting pictures of the new addition to our family and will try to get all of you caught up on what we have been doing and what is happening around our new home!!!

Shalom to All from the Warrens

BLESSED BEYOND MEASURE!!!!!!!

Well folks, the Father has once again blessed our family!!  Dayton and Abigail are going to have a BABY!!!!  YEAH!!!!!





The announcement came on a lazy Sunday afternoon!  We were all sitting in the living room watching football and Dayton and Abigail strolled into the room and sat down as if they had nothing to hide.  Dayton turned to us (Monty and Nancy) and said that they had just bought a scale in town and they were wondering how much weight a pregnant woman should gain!  Well, Monty and I can sometimes be a bit slow to catch on to things, but we caught on to this statement rather quickly!  Needless to say, there were lots of hugs and kisses all around! 



Once again our family is on the receiving end of a wonderful blessing!  We thank the Father for being so kind to us even when we don't deserve His kindness! We thank Him for all the great LOVE and MERCY He has shown to us!! 


PRAISE BE TO THE KING OF KINGS--YAHUAH ELOHIM!!!!
