My new friend has a blog called "Leaving Comfort for Courage" and I feel like that title fits this phase of our life perfectly right now. We are leaving the comfort of our friends, our church, our paycheck, our little "village" to go somewhere unknown. Not unknown physically, as Colorado Springs is where we served three years prior to moving here. But unknown in the sense of the practical side of life: Where will we live? Who will love my children the way they are loved here? Who will babysit my children when I need one? How do I register Drew for Kindergarten when I don't even know where we will be living? So many unknowns… But luckily we serve a God who is beyond one step ahead of us. He is paving this path for us, and we already have so much evidence of this.
Life will look different for us. In order to make ends meet for the next 18-24 months, Michael will have to get a job and we will have to raise support. We aren't quite sure at this point what either of those will look like, but we are praying for His ultimate wisdom and provision. So as of now, please start praying for us. Pray that our house will sell quickly. Pray that Michael can find a job that will still allow him to focus on Alethia and his role as a teacher there. Pray that our kids transition well. Pray that our hearts continue to be unified and that the pieces of this giant puzzle continue to fall into place.
All of this was announced at RBC this morning. If you would like more information, please ask! We would love to answer questions! There is a page on the RBC website that is very informative, so go check it out! Click here!
Thank you for your support and your prayers. From now on, we will be using our blog to be more ministry oriented and document this exciting faith journey that God has placed on our hearts and set into motion!
