Pause and Reflect 2008-10-03 12:28:00

Wow, so much has happened since I last blogged.

Wednesday night I informed the group that we will be leaving Charlottesville, VA and Covenant Church. God has opened an amazing door for us to go to Maine. I have always wanted to work with youth pastors, resourcing and empowering them.

We've looked into starting a "Mission" or "Master's Commission" here in Charlottesville, but have always felt lead into state youth work. Finally God has opened a door for that to be possible. October 17th I leave for Portland, ME on an adventure. I have been confirmed as the Regional Youth Director for the Northern New England Region which encompasses Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine.

Northern New England is a missions state, which basically means we will be missionaries and raising funds for salary.

The emotions run the gamut.

Excited to be doing what God has called us to do.
Nervous about selling our house.
Full of faith that God will provide for us financially.
Scared to be out on such a limb.
Confirmed in our vision and calling.
Sad that I will be living away from Amanda and the girls until the house sells
Sad to be leaving our great teens, church and friends.
Empowered to do the work of kingdom.

Pray for us as we embark on this adventure.
