We're Moving!!

The Lord has provided a full time ministry position for Kyle at First Baptist Church, Roosevelt in none other than Lubbock, Texas! Kyle lived in Lubbock for four years while he attended Texas Tech University. It's a town of about 200,000 located in West Texas. The church is actually out in the country, about 15 minutes from town. Kyle will be the Associate Pastor overseeing Youth and Childrens Ministries. We are SO excited that the Lord has allowed us to move to such an amazing church. The people there are so warm and generous and we can't wait to serve alongside them! Of course with the excitement also comes a little bit of sadness as we have to say goodbye to many friends and family who have played such a crucial role in our lives. We will miss them dearly, but trust that God will allow these relationships to grow despite the distance.

Here is a picture of our new church home:

We are excited for ya'll. I am sure once I tell Bryan there might be a hint of jealousy that ya'll are going to be in Lubbock! We won't be that far from you guys and will have to hang out when we come to visit family!

That's great news! Congrats on finishing seminary too, it's so amazing to see how the Lord provides so much for us all.

How will the move affect Suzie's treatment and therapy? I imagine you'll just have to find doc's in the area?

I'm excited for you guys to start this next phase, it's been such a joyous time for us and I'm eager to hear how it goes for you.
