Moving and Settling

We're moved into our apartment in Vancouver - sort of. Lots of boxes with all sorts of things in them. We can't seem to find some things, but all of that is part and parcel of the moving experience.

We're slowly getting settled. We've decided that the church we were part of before we moved to Odessa will be our "home base" while we're here. We'll also do some visiting in order to "check out" other churches (how they do things; what works and what doesn't) - something pastors don't get a chance to do very often.

We have no idea how long we'll be here, but we know God has plans for us while we are here. We don't want to look at this time in our lives as a "vacation" of sorts where we can just coast spiritually. A number of people in Odessa told me that I'd taught them to trust God no matter what - because He's sovereign, He loves us, and He knows what He's doing. I guess it's time that I practice what I preach and do the same thing. Not a bad idea!

Before this post comes to its conclusion, I want to say thank you to everyone who helped us move. Every one of you is a gift from God to us. May your tribe increase!
