Things are starting to come together as we get ready to move in just three short weeks. This past week Jeremy was ordained. I am so proud of him for all that he has done to get to this place, and so thankful for all of the people that have poured into us along the journey.
Our remaining weeks here are going to be filled with lots of boxes, and lots of goodbyes. Jeremy has had an intense summer of lots of summer classes, and we have been in the middle of starting our online shop, so things have been hectic. On top of that we are getting ready to leave the comfort of the known, to enter into the land of the unknown. It is incredibly exciting, and just a tad scary.

I think, though, that it is also a time of expectancy. We are looking forward to the future, knowing that the road ahead will be hard, that there might be days of discouragement, but that we will work for His name and for His glory, and wait expectantly for what He has.
We have so many dreams for the church that will soon take form, but those dreams don’t really have anything to do with pretty buildings, perfect music, or an abundance of programs. Instead, we are dreaming about people that will encounter Christ, and encounter grace. We are dreaming about our living room being full of new friends. We are dreaming about a community of people captured by grace, that live out the gospel each day in a community of believers, and in their own communities. So, we are going into the unknown, realizing that there will be bumps along the way, but that we have a God who is sovereign over all, who knows exactly what lies ahead, and is already preparing the hearts of those that we will meet.
Will you pray with us?
Will you pray for hearts to be softened, and open to the gospel?
Will you pray for people that that will go with us?
Will you pray, and ask if it could be you?
