Where to start? Just thought I would take a minute and update this site. In August 2018, we left France and relocated back to Texas. As a result of prayer and confirmation, we felt God moving our family to leave the work in Limoux in the hands of the locals and seek what God had next for us. It was a crazy couple of weeks making arrangements, sifting, sorting, packing, cleaning, saying goodbye, flying, etc... That was now over two years ago. We miss our friends and life in France at times. When our family is together, conversation always seems to fall back on the great memories we made there and the little ways we say God work. It has been nice being close to family once again.
We had decided ahead of time, that I would not rush into another ministry position, but wait while we acclimated back to life in the States. So for two years we stayed in Hillsboro and served in our church there, while working regular jobs. I worked in a machine shop as a CNC operator and also was a truck driver. But 9 months ago, I got a message from a friend sharing about a church in Idabel, Oklahoma, needing a pastor. Long story short, I am not the pastor of Calvary Missionary Baptist Church. We are having a great time. It was hard for the kids to move again, but as one of them said, "That's our life."
As you can see in the picture about. Our kids are a lot bigger than when we moved to France over 12 years ago. Our oldest is in her junior year of college, still a swimmer, she received a scholarship for the swim team. She will soon be married. Our second son is about to finish up his first year of college. That leaves the two other boys in high school. Our youngest, who was born while we were in France, is in 5th grade. She has a few memories of France and is not able to speak the language as all the rest are. She does still understand it some.
We stay in contact with friends there. And will one day re-visit the place we called "home" for so many years. Thanks for taking this journey with us. And thanks be to God for His faithfulness. To Him be the glory.
