If it be the will of the Lord...

My current blog hiatus is due to the fact that my family and I are moving. We have been called to a church in Alabama, in my own home town, in a church I attended as a boy. I have not resided in my home town for any great length of time in 15 years, and so it is with great surprise that I return there with family in tow. This process has been an emotional and spiritual ordeal of the likes that I have never experienced. In short, I am exhausted. I never planned to leave Plaquemine.

At some point in the future I will post a series on this event, and what I have learned from it. For now, the feelings are too raw for me to go over again. We are very excited for the future, and we firmly believe that God has led us to this move. At the same time, the experience of leaving so many we love like family is a grief. Please pray for us over the course of the next few weeks as we relocate, recoup, and begin the new ministry that God has led us to.

Where in Alabama?

We'll be relocating to Albertville, AL. It's in the NorthEastern corner of the state, maybe 40 minutes SSE of Huntsville.

Stumbled across your blog. I live in Huntsville. I pray God be with you during this time.

Sounds exciting (if painful from another perspective). Let us know how things go, what the church is like, etc.

I'll be praying for you as well. We drive down I-65 on our way to visit my sister in Panama City, FL. Maybe we'll stop by your house sometime - we'll bring brownie, of course. ;)
