This is it!

Well, here we go - we're off to Massachusetts tomorrow for the weekend. They are supposed to get a big snow tomorrow, so this should be fun. We've got a fairly full schedule for the weekend, including TJ meeting with all of the church leadership on Saturday and then preaching Sunday morning, with a church potluck (aka covered dish) after where we were told we will probably "get mobbed" by the congregation. The following weekend there is supposed to be a congregational meeting were the church will vote to extend a call to us or not. So hopefully we'll know something in the next couple of weeks.

Please be in prayer for us and the church this weekend! We'll post an update when we get back and of course pictures of our adventures.

On a side note, pregnancy is going well - a little less than 9 weeks left to go!

Massachusetts in January.....brrrr...

Well, we are all set (a.k.a. plane tickets purchased) to trek up to Mass. the last weekend of January! TJ will preach that Sunday and the following weekend (Feb 6) is the congregational meeting where they will vote to hopefully extend a call to us. We'll be staying with the senior pastor and his family that weekend and hopefully be able to travel around the area and get some good inside scoop on the area. It's going to be cold and snowy - so we'll be getting a good taste for winter life. Pray for TJ as he prepares to preach to a group of people he knows very little about.

The pregnancy is going well - pretty uneventful - which is good! Lots of kung fu and/or cirque du soleil going on in there, but things are well. We have a nursery set up (Kerstin was dying to start the nesting process) with the necessities, plus some stuff we hadn't ever heard of - so now we wait until March for the big day. Please continue to pray this goes well!
