we vote 'yay'

Got a call this morning from Louise at Plow Creek farm. She said our retreat idea was discussed at the church members' meeting yesterday and received a very positive and enthusiastic response. They want to go ahead with the idea, continuing to explore the possibilities and trying to work out the difficulties. She also surprised me by saying they are trying to find a way for us to move to the farm sooner, perhaps even this summer.

This is very good news for us. Far more than we dared hope for (O we of little faith).
