Graduating

It’s been a while since I posted, so I wanted to give everyone a quick update. We are approaching several big transitions, and would really appreciate your prayer support.

The family and I are preparing for our relocation to the Dallas-Fort Worth area of Texas. This is something I first started to sense in the fall of 2010, so it has been a long time in the making. Hopefully that means we are prepared.

graduating1Heather, our oldest daughter, recently graduated with highest honors from Anderson University, as is now a certified teacher. We are very proud of her, and were thankful that family from Texas were able to join us for the ceremony.

Destiny, middle daughter, graduates from high school in less than a month. We are proud of her too, and she has worked very hard this year, doing two years work in one so that she could graduate before our move.

I think, in some way, our whole family is graduating in this season. All graduations seem to introduce a broad range of emotional response.

We are in the process of making ready / selling our house in Fort Mill, SC, in case you know someone who is looking.

We are moving to the Dallas area on the Lord’s leadership, and this will be the next step toward the formation of a missions school we have been planning toward for some time. We should be ready for our first students by the beginning of next year. Our core team of leaders is coming together now and will be preparing over the rest of 2013.

By the time we move from the Charlotte area we will have been here 8 years. It has been a blessing, and the Lord has changed us all in many ways. We are thankful for our time here and for the contribution of friends and fellow believers, as well as the time we have had at MorningStar Ministries. We know God has used all of these to prepare us for the contribution He intends us to have in the days ahead.

As you can imagine, any transition of this size is a challenge, and is fraught with a myriad of emotional tides, especially in a house of five, four of which are female. My education continues…

With the graduation of Heather and Destiny, Kathy and I are hoping to manage well the transition to a new stage of parenthood.

I ask for your prayers over all these things, and over a future that is certain in heaven, but uncertain on Earth. Please pray that all of our family follows on know to the Lord and make Him known more fully. We are called to this, but it is grace that makes it possible, just as in your case, I am sure.

Please pray for those who will join us in the FXMissions effort going forward.

Please pray for the right connections in DFW. We are looking forward to being joined to the right fellowship and the right friendships, as well as the Lord’s direction for Kathy’s teaching and Katie’s school.

Please stand with us for God’s grace in all these things. It is greatly appreciated.
