It has been a long time since our last post - so here's a quick summary of what has been happening the past couple months:
1) We've been waiting/searching for on an opportunity in New England.
2) Kerstin's belly keeps growing - 17 weeks along next week!
3) TJ went to Newark for a week for an evangelism and prayer seminar.
Now you're all caught up.
Tj has a very strong lead on an Assistant Pastor job up in Douglas, MA. (Douglas is on the Rhode Island border, half hour or so from Providence) The Senior pastor at this church really wants us to come up there - he just needs to meet with the elders and deacons to see how they'd like to proceed. This meeting is happening this week sometime. TJ met this guy when we were in NE in August - and they have some pretty good mutual connections. It's ALL in who you know, right?
Please join us in praying that God will make it clear if this is where he's leading us. We're really excited to think about moving to the northeast. It will be hard to be so far away from family and friends, but thanks to technology staying in touch will be so much easier. There will certainly be an adjustment as far as the weather goes, but Kerstin is hoping to invest in some skis and pick up her favorite hobby again. Tripod will probably need a coat - and we swore we'd never be those people who put clothes on their pets. But she's so little and starting her golden years....we may as well. Also, if this does work out we'll need to raise a chunk of the money, so please pray that if this is the direction God wants us to go he'll provide.
