Anne-Marie and I have decided to move to Pierce County, Washington. We have been praying and talking about this decision for about seven years (really) and we are finally ready to make this change.
We have been involved in ministry work here in the Portland, Oregon, area at our home church in Oregon City, but we have the opportunity to take on new ministry challenges in the Puyallup/Tacoma area of Washington state at Life Church. We're excited to follow what we believe God has called us to and look forward to meeting all kinds of new people that we know we'll fall in love with.
At the same time, we are very sad to be leaving our friends and family. Leaving my employer, Western Wood Structures, and our church, OCUPC, is one of the hardest things I've personally ever done. I love you all.
We say goodbye to everyone in Oregon at the end of next week, so you'll probably be hearing about it a lot more in the near future.
