We are moving to VALPARAISO, IN!!!! (Valparaiso is about 45 minutes southeast of Chicago!!!)
We have accepted a call to help with a church plant in VALPARAISO, IN!!!!
We have had such an amazing time at Grace Community and we hate to leave, but we also have seen that God is at work in "Valpo" as everyone calls it. I've been doing a Bible Study called Discerning the Voice of God by Priscilla Shrirer. Which has been incredible. It was definitely something that I would read to Daniel each day as we were praying over this decision. We have seen definite affirmation that this is the right thing, not the easy thing, but the right thing. We must be obedient and follow God's stirring in our hearts.
The cool thing is that Daniel will get to work with one of his good buddies BEN LAMB!!! I got to meet Ben when Daniel and I were dating and he was in our wedding. We did a Daniel Doss Band concert at their church in October last year. (I think I blogged about that.) Ben will be the pastor and Daniel will lead worship.
We are so pumped, but very sad to leave. We've never lived this far away from family. I've never lived outside of TN, but we know that it is better to follow God when it doesn't make sense than to stay put when He's calling you to go. Soooo we're off to the unknown. And my biggest fear is that I'm going to freeze. :)
Sunday April 5- Daniel will lead worship in Valpo- their first Sunday in a new building.
Sunday April 12- Easter Sunday at Grace Community
Sunday April 26- Our last Sunday at Grace Community
Friday May 1st- Daniel's first day on staff in Valpo!!!!
We have no clue when we'll actually move, but our house is currently up for sale. This is very exciting and overwhelming and scary all at the same time. Please say a prayer for us as this is going to be a big time transition.
