A lot has happened since our June update.
We have packed up all our earthly possessions and sent them off with our friend Scott.
We have said MANY sad goodbyes to friends and coworkers.
We have driven from sunny Golden Hill, San Diego to SUNNY Portland (including a stop off at our friends Jason and Megan).
We have said MANY hellos to old friends, family and supporters.
We have bought and moved into a home in Tigard thanks to our friend's Dave and Patti.
We have left 8 years of formal ministry with NieuCommunities (though we are excited to continue with NC in a less formal way) and have been seconded to The Berean Way.
And, we have laughed, cried, pondered, sighed, missed, hugged, borrowed, bugged, talked, walked, stayed, played and prayed along the way. We seem to be a family that is on the move but looking for a place to settle... God willing, this will be that place (for a while).
For those of you who may be getting this update and wondering what is going on I encourage you to check out these updates to help "fill in the gaps".
One special prayer request... Thursday the 23rd The Berean Way is hosting an event in Portland to raise awareness of the ministries work and funds for upcoming trips. Please be praying for those coming, for the Spirits work and God's provision.
As always, thank you for your prayers and support as we move in this new direction... we are excited to see what God is going to do!
