There are many words I could choose to describe the past 17 months. A few…
Â Â Â Transitional
Â Â Â Â Â Â Trying
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Challenging
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Frustrating
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Quiet
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Wonderful
We moved to the desert nearly 3 years ago…by faith.
We leave the desert next month…again, by faith.
Faith that we are following God’s leading.
The beauty of this next move for our family is that we get to leave the desert…both literally and figuratively.
Seasons in the desert define your ability withstand harsh elements.
Seasons in the desert begin and end with new growth.
Seasons in the desert test you in extremes.
As we leave, I’m grateful for the experiences I’ve had…the lessons I’ve learned…and I’m thankful that this season is coming to a close.
We’re moving to California. We don’t have jobs. We won’t have family close by. We’re just going…and not because it’s familiar…but because we believe it’s where God wants our family for this next season of life.
The promptings began many months ago and we have waited patiently (well…mostly) for God’s clear direction and timing to fall into place.
Now is the time!
There have been moments we’ve thought about how the children of Israel were wandering through the wilderness…waiting to get to the promised land…and we’ve felt a certain kinship with the people in that story.
So now we continue following God the best we know how…cloud by day…fire by night.
Our lives will remain focused on the ministry God has called us to. We’ll be serving churches with music and children around the world through our work with World Vision.
As we make this move, we value your prayers and support.
Â Â Â We are excited!
Â Â Â We are dreaming!
Â Â Â We are believing!
Â Â Â We are chasing life…with Hope!
We’ll be updating you soon on our new life in Oceanside, CA.
Have you ever moved your life and family somewhere completely new? No job? Knowing nobody?
