The Wait has Ended…and the Adventure Begins!

Well, the wait is over. Last night the Harvest Baptist Church in Wausau, Wisconsin voted unanimously to call Adam as their Pastor. And he has accepted that call! Yes, I know, the original plan was for them to call us to come officially candidate and then go from there. But as they met together last night they decided that they knew Adam was God’s man for them, and with that confidence did not wish to prolong the process – so they simply voted him in as Pastor! How wonderfully the Lord works! I am glad that early on in our search for the church God had for us we decided to leave the planning up to Him. How much greater His plans are than ours!

This morning Adam will be giving his two week notice at work. When those two weeks are up we will spend several days up in Wisconsin looking for housing and also a part time job. The church can only pay us part time right now, and so Adam will need to get another part time job. Please pray that the Lord will supply these two needs. As soon as we find a house to rent, we will be packing up our home here in Michigan and moving!

Through the last serveral months many of you have been a great help and encouragment to us. We want to say “Thank you” for the love you have shown us. We are excited about what the Lord has in store for us at Harvest Baptist Church!

    Wow! Praise God for His unending provisions. Giving it all over to God can be scary at times (especially for the control freaks among us (raising my hand and waving wildly)) — but the blessings that come out of doing so are so much greater than we can ever achieve on our own. Congratulations to Adam! And congrats to your family as the next exciting adventure begins!
