A little over 3 weeks ago, we were saying goodbye to our church family in Kentucky. July 10 was a milestone day for us, not because it was our last day at SVBC, but that afternoon we received confirmation that we were fully funded for ministry for the entire year AND we received a contract on our house in Elizabethtown. So much time and effort and planning went into making it happen, but that was a huge day for us.
Everything since then has been a blur. During that time, we flew Henry to Oklahoma to be with grandparents, celebrated our 5 year anniversary in Mexico, caught a rental car home from Chicago (to KY) with strangers because our flight was cancelled, loaded up all of our stuff in just a few hours, and finally made the trek out west to our new home in Norman, OK. Here are a few pictures from our whirlwind month...
This past Sunday was our first time to be with the people of Providence Road at their corporate worship gathering. In many ways, it felt like the official start to our time here in Norman. This past week we spent most of our time swimming through boxes, looking for things we know (maybe?) we packed, and learning more about Norman. People from Prov Road have been so welcoming... helping us unload the Uhaul (in 37 minutes!), bringing us food throughout the week, having us over for dinner, giving us tips about Norman, and consistently checking in on us to see how we're adjusting. We're convinced now more than ever that this is the place God has led us to for this season of ministry, and possibly much longer.
That's all for now. We'll be in touch next month!
