IT'S WHERE WE WILL BE MOVING TO OFFICIALLY AS OF MARCH 15th!!!!!
Today we handed in our resignation to our board here at Uskichitto Retreat Center where we have been the directors for over 7 years. We have truly and thoroughly LOVED our time of ministry here. We will DEEPLY miss our campers, retreats, and summer staff!!!!!!
But, our hearts are here (in the above pictures) too- with family.....with loved ones...
We have been here on our island- 45 minutes from church, from "town", from anyone!! It has been hard here on our island....for that reason. We have longed to just be a part of our church, but we can't....unless we make the 1 & 1/2 round trip each time we want to participate in anything. We couldn't just go visit friends from church unless again we made the 1 & 1/2 round trip as well. What about doctor appointments, dentists, orthodontist, etc.- same thing.
We will be moving to the Tampa area in Florida- near the beautiful people in the above pictures :) We are HAPPY that we will be near family, live near other people, and be able to share life with others on a consistent basis.
Awww....you ask - do you have a home yet?
Do you know what you will be doing yet?
NOPE! He he he---oh we have preliminary plans. I have to, I am totally OCD about those things, but really, not real plans. Just dreams of being and doing whatever God calls us to. This will be a totally different life than we have lived for the last 11 years (before Camp URC we were at another camp in Iowa)!!! So here is where we NEED YOUR PRAYERS!!!!!!!!!!
*Prayers about finding a home for our family....and you never know who else may eventually join our family ;)
*Prayers for Jason finding a job.
*Prayers for finding a church home.
*Prayers for our transition time which could just send me over the edge :)
*Prayers for the move itself.....the idea of moving a family of 10- yeah it can overload anyone's brain!
The great part about living in Florida is - I am pretty sure it would be a GREAT excuse to come visit us once we get settled!!! :) We would love to see you!!!!
So there you have it- OUR BIG NEWS!!! Now if you continue following our blog you will get to see what moving with a larger family looks like :) he he he he- I am sure you will have many chuckles at that!!! Should be fun times..... :)
