Settling In

Less than four months ago, I wrote that we had returned to the States and felt a call to ministry in our own country.  We had no idea where we would live or what, exactly, we would be doing, but God is faithful :)  In April, we accepted a call to New Hope Church of the Nazarene in Bellevue Washington.  It is a wonderful church with loving people and we are excited to see what God has in store for this congregation.

 We moved to Bellevue the last weekend in April and are currently living in a transitional basement apartment until our house is available in June.  Although farther from the church than we would like to be this first month, we feel blessed to be in a beautiful neighborhood with amazing views :)

 Ryan has been working Sunday through Thursday so he can have Fridays and Saturdays available for fun time.  We feel it is important to the boys' adaptation for them to be able to experience their new city and culture as a family these first few months.  Last week we went to the aquarium!
 We know we are exactly where God wants us to be right now.  While there are still things on our prayer request list (a car as we are currently borrowing from my parents and a social worker position with good hours for me), I have been overwhelmed at how God has provided for ALL of our needs - in His perfect time.  He is always faithful!
These next few weeks are full as we have a Ministerial Retreat to attend, will be moving into our new home, and Ryan will be officially installed as the Pastor of New Hope.  Thank you so much for your prayers and support!  God is good!!!
