It's Official...We're Moving to Virginia!

We were thrilled to find out tonight that Immanuel Bible Church has called Jesse to be their teaching pastor! God is so good to direct us to this church family. Thank you for your prayers and all the kind notes we've received regarding this. We look forward to what God will do to grow both us and this loving church closer to Him.
Our plan is to move in a month. It is hard to think about leaving our family and church here in California, but we trust God's guidance. Thank you for your prayers on our behalf!
The picture above is of the members of the church after the vote. They gathered around Jesse and laid hands on him, and then the elders prayed for him. I got to watch the whole thing (with the girls) via skype! I can't wait to be there again in person.

I'm so excited the desicion has finally been made! That was a special moment in that picture, I looked up and saw you were skyping in! I'm glad you were able to be a part of it!

I didn't get to talk with you much when you were up here before or when you were out here a couple weeks ago, but I look forward to it when you all move out here!

Be praying for you and your family as you prepare to move out here!
