Hey y'all! This is just a quick update due to a sick little curly-haired girly, but I just wanted to 'shout' some big news over the rooftops! This weekend our family travelled to East Peoria, Illinois to visit a church there. Trace interviewed for the youth & worship leader positions. The church family was wonderful, including the Senior pastor and his family, who were friends from our days in Indiana. After extensive grilling (just kidding, it really was great...) we drove home last night. After we got home, the pastor called, and he extended the 'call' for us to come join their congregation there, and this morning we called back and delightfully accepted.
We are thrilled about this transition, as it feels like such a perfect fit and like the thing God has had us waiting for. We have tremendous peace in this decision! We will likely be moving the end of December/first part of January, so it is quickly approaching. Yay, God!
Well, a coughing baby has awakened, so I need to go. Hopefully I'll be back with some regularity this week. Happy Monday! And thanks to so many of you who have been praying for us as we have been trying to figure out what God wants for our family.
