How do you tell people that you love that you are leaving? I couldn't find an easy way to do it. We have spent over 13 years with our church family laughing, and singing, and ministering together. And lots of eating too! And every now and then there was some crying and lots of praying. When you go through so many events with your church family, it brings you close.
And yet, when God is calling, we must follow. In my heart I know that staying when God said to move, would only bring difficulty. And I also know that this move isn't just about our family serving in a new place, but also someone new serving here. I know that God has great things in store for Calvary and for our new work, if we all will be faithful in seeking Him.
For now, my wife and I covet your prayers. We have a lot to do in a very short time. In the weeks ahead, I hope to share what we are looking forward to in Indiana, and how we have come to this place in our lives.
But tonight, I just want to say thank you to my Church Family for their incredible support, and love and for the Lord who has allowed us to labor together.
Acts 20:32 And now a I commend you to God and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up and to give you the inheritance among all those who are sanctified.
