Transition continues

Monday, July 27, 2009

Okay, let's just say I've been swamped over the past few weeks. I do want to update things a bit and let you know how are transition is going.

This past week we launched the campaign I am working on (Go10) at our National Convention in Cincinnati, Ohio. I honestly believe things went very well and we were able to generate a lot of excitement. You can read more about “Go10” on the following;


I want to thank all of our friends and family who continue to pray for us as we make this transition. It has not been easy and yet we trust God will carry us through each faze of this wonderful journey.

Please continue to pray about the following;
*The girls as they adjust to life in Nashville and prepare to attend new schools. This is especially tough for Karlee who will be entering her Junior year in High School. We are currently praying about what school she should attend.
*Our home in Lebanon, Missouri to sell. It is listed with an agent and has been shown several times but no offers…yet. Praying this comes quickly so that we can purchase a home in Nashville.
*Our small business in Lebanon to sell. We started a small business in Lebanon called “Airblast Inflatables Inc. Over the past six years God has blessed that little business. At this point, it would be best if we could leave it in the area and focus on our new ministry – so it’s for sale.
*Julie a teaching position. Over the years Julie has been blessed with some incredible teaching opportunities. We are praying for God to provide a place for her to shine brightly for Him.
*A place to live in Nashville. That’s right – we still do not have a place to live. We are currently staying with Julie’s brother’s family when we are in town. Pray with us that our home will sell quickly so that we can purchase something here.

Today is my anniversary! Julie and I have been married for 19 years this afternoon. And, I have to say that the longer I'm married to this amazing woman the more I am blown away by the pure joy this relationship brings into my life. I can't wait to see what the next 19 years has in store for us.

It's been a while since I have written anything on my blog. No good reason. Just haven't taken the time and haven't had the motivation.

We are currently in a major transition. I have left my position as pastor to take on a new role as a Program Director with FWB International Missions. The program I am heading up is called "Go 10 - Walk for the World." It's a campaign designed to unify young people on Christ's call for us to impact the world for Him and to challenge them to raise awareness/support by completing a 2,500 mile memorial walk across much of the US. More on the details later.

What does this mean for our family and how can you pray for us? Well, we are currently in the process of relocating to Nashville, Tennessee. Several people have asked how they could help or pray for us so here are some of our prayer needs;

*Julie a teaching job
*For our house to sell
*For our small business (Airblast Inflatables, Inc.) to sell
*That we would find a good deal on a home
*For our daughters during this transition - especially Karlee who will be a Junior in High School.
*For our church and friends we have left behind
*For the "Go 10" campaign

Thank you for praying!

I can honestly say that I am blown away that God is allowing me to be a part of this program. I believe it is going to be huge - much bigger than any of us can imagine and I am so excited to be in on it.
