Sometime in early 2006, I interviewed at a church in the Pacific Northwest to be a Youth & Family Minister. The interview went well and the church offered me a joba month or so later. Treneé and I prayed a lot and decided to accept the offer. We were excited to move from Connecticut to this area of the country, it was the first opportunity we had to be close to her side of the family. I shared the news with my Elders, we broke the news to my teen group and their parents, and I then told the congregation. About a week later we received a call from the church that offered us the job. Due to things unexplained they had to rescind the offer. Trust had been broken with my youth group and there was a strong feeling of awkwardness over over our staying. After praying and discussing the situation with my elders, we decided to move out here without a job. I contacted the church that had rescinded their offer. I requested they still provide the moving expenses they had originally offered since their rescision of the offer caused the problem. They agreed.
In June 2006, without jobs, and without a place to live, we moved into Dan & Bev’s basement. It was a challenging transition. We looked for work and eventually settled into our own place. Throughout all of the transitions, challenges and dificulties God was present and with us.
It is with a heavy heart that I want to share with you the next transition in our lives. On August 1, 2018, Treneé will start a new job in Oklahoma City. Stephen and I will be joining her sometime in August or at the latest September. We know that God will continue to guide us as we follow Him and we know that God will continue to be with the church here in Spokane Valley.
But for me it is good to be near God; I have made the Lord God my refuge, that I may tell of all your works. Psalm 73:28
