Where We are Moving

Hello to All!
It appears that I haven't made it clear exactly where we are moving and what we are doing. At the beginning of this spring semester, as we started thinking more seriously of our future after Heston's graduation, we started asking about full-time positions here at Northland for Heston. However, God had other plans. Josh Beers, who is at Lancaster Bible College, called Heston and asked him if he would be intersted in a Sports Information Director Position at LBC. We didn't know what to think as we thought we would be here at Northland for years to come. But as we begin to talk about it with others and received prayer and much counsel, we realized that God specifially opened that door of ministry to us. Heston went out and interviewed the beginning of May and accepted the position.

It will be very hard for us to leave Northland, as this has been our home for the past 4 years of married life and then our school for the 3 years before that. We are eternally grateful for the friends we have made, for the decisions that we have made and for all of the lessons that we have learned. We are so thankful for the years that we have spent here at Northland and are excited to see how God is going to use that training in our future.

We are excited to be a part of a new ministry and also to be close to Heston's side of the family. We are praying for the quick sale of our house so we can get settled in Lancaster.

We are looking forward to catching up with all of our friends who live in PA. Please pray for us as we are packing up tomorrow night and then starting the long trek out to PA on Friday morning.

Wow, it has been a while! We have been very busy the past month or so. We had our big grad class the first week of June, the next week I went to visit my family in CO to help my grandparent's celebrate thier 60th wedding anniversary and also to see my sister Brianne who was home from Zambia. We had a wonderful time!

We are packing up our house as we are loading our truck on Thursday night and leaving on Friday morning. We have someone who is interested in purchasing our house and told us they would let us know by tomorrow what thier thoughts are. It would be a huge burden relieved if the house were to sell before we moved!

We will be spending a week relaxing and getting settled and then Heston will start working on July 9. I applied for a job at the school so we will see how that goes.

Thanks for your prayers and words of encouragemet. We are sad to leave Northland, but we are very excited about this new phase of our lives that the Lord has so evidently led us into.

We will definately keep everyone posted! Please pray for the sale of our home and for safe travels.

Here is a slide show of my time in CO. More to come!
