The waiting is over!

It’s over—and it’s begun!

Our long season of waiting, praying, and searching for direction has come to end. This morning my husband was formally offered the position of youth director/worship leader at Trinity Fellowship in Portland, Oregon. And, of course, he accepted. We are so excited to be a part of the body there and to finally have a place to invest and serve long-term.

I will divulge more of my heart on the matter later; I just wanted to take this opportunity to broadcast my joy and thank you for your support. I know many of you have been praying and many have also shared thoughtful and encouraging words. God has answered our prayers—and yours—and He has done it in such a way that leaves little room for us to ever doubt His very direct involvement in the process that has led us to this place.

In the coming weeks I will be busy with packing, moving, and transition. It may or may not affect my ability to do the blogging thing consistently. But, if it does, you’ll know why.

I do look forward to exploiting the inspiration my new adventure will afford me as blog fodder!

Thanks for reading,

Crystal

    I was hoping ya’all would move to Huntsville, AlaBAMA! aka “Sweet HOME Alabama”, where the skies are SO BLUE, except when it’s humid…

    I’m happy for you!

  5. Canice – I’d love to be closer to you and your beautiful family, but I’m afraid the heat just wilts me. Sometimes the summers in the Willamette Valley of western Oregon are too intense for me!
