Taking the Next Step

I've been back in the States for about two and a half months now, so I figured I should probably post an update. I kept meaning to post something earlier, but to be honest I've just been enjoying spending time with my family and readjusting to life stateside. The transition has been harder than expected in some ways and easier in others. I don't feel like I've really experienced that much culture-shock (except for maybe the lack of cows and increase in traffic), but it has taken me a while to really process everything. While I was there I knew God was working and teaching me things, but the depth and vastness of those things are much more clear to me as I take the time to look back. Yes, I miss the island and the people, especially the kids. They will always have a piece of my heart. But I'm also so thankful that God has brought me back home and given me the opportunity to really catch a glimpse of the bigger picture of what He allowed me to be a part of for an entire year. Looking back at how God worked in and through me also makes me really excited about my next steps! 

It is with great excitement and anticipation that I'm happy to announce that I will be moving to Holly Springs, North Carolina (a suburb of Raleigh) to be a part of the launch team for Life Spring Church!! 

For all of you out there who've prayed for and supported me over the last year-and-a-half, I want to say a big THANK YOU! and ask that you continue to pray for me, my team, and the community of Holly Springs as we start this journey. I've never been a part of a church planting team before, but I am so excited for the opportunity to start from the beginning with this church! The mission LifeSpring is to connect people with an overflowing relationship with Jesus Christ, and we're planning to do this first and foremost by obeying the great commandment: love your neighbor. You can check out more details about the church (including our strategy, timeline, blog, and how you can pray for and support us) on our website: www.lifespringlive.com 

My current plan is to move to Holly Springs in August, get a job in the community, and work alongside other launch team members to serve and reach the community for Christ. Until I move, my plan is to find a job here in the Atlanta area and continue to spend as much time as possible with friends and family. If you fall into one of those categories and I haven't seen you yet, I'm hoping to do so soon. Seriously. Shoot me an email and let's set something up!
