In November, right before Thanksgiving, we went home to New England for our usual visit. But something was different. I felt God calling us away from Midland to serve in New England again.
As we visited, shopped, walked, had coffee at local coffee shops up there, I saw the raw need for Jesus everywhere I looked. I guess my blinders had been on since I grew up there. Having been gone almost 10 years now… this time I saw with fresh eyes.
God grabbed hold of my heart and allowed me to see the hurt. I started praying “God, if there are churches in New England advancing the Kingdom of God, using the Power of the Holy Spirit to do the impossible, and this is from You…. would you please connect us?”
God quickly answered that prayer! Jonathan and I just figured the call to move to NE would just come someday. After all, we were pretty settled here in Texas.
We met the people of CenterPoint church in Concord, NH in February. They flew us up there March 13 to interview and to meet the staff and church. I fell in love!
I knew this was what God wanted. A week or so later, they called us to confirm this calling.
I start as Worship Director of CenterPoint May 1st!
Pray for us as we go! That we would have boldness, look for opportunities to share God’s gospel of grace, and for the sale of our home, our car, and some of our things.
We will dearly miss Texas, so please also pray for the transition, as it is very hard.
What an adventure serving God has been, and continues to be!
