We're Outta Here!

Well, everyone, the time has come for us to say goodbye to our hometown and follow where the Lord has led. Our last few days here, in Lubbock, have come and gone quite quickly... mostly spent packing up our apartments and offices and preparing to load them onto the moving van, which will begin shortly (as I'm writing this, I'm finishing up my last Market Street burrito for a while and sipping Peet's coffee at United). We're praying for plenty of people to come help us move our stuff, especially after yesterday with moving numerous boxes up and down, up and down, up and down our apartment's staircase.

As Carrie, Laura Kate and I leave Lubbock, we know that we are leaving behind so many great friends, memories, and yes, our families. In a way, we're doing like Indiana Jones in the Last Crusade as he steps out into the void and crosses the chasm to a great treasure. We know that God has led us to this place, and, as we, too, prepare to cross a void, we know that there is a great treasure waiting for us as we follow where the Lord has led and go on staff with NEXT Worldwide. I don't know if we can really describe the excitement that we have, the passion we have for our new roles with NEXT, and yet, the skepticism that sometimes unexpectedly creeps in and attempts to steal away joy from this time in our lives.

We have a very short time left, here in Lubbock. If we have not gotten to say goodbye to you, personally, know that we would love for you to stop by the apartment to bid us farewell. If not that, then know that we love you and will be praying for you as we leave. If you are reading this blog, then the chances are that we consider you family. If you are living in the Metroplex, know that we are excited to be hanging out with you more! We cannot wait to be there.

Monday, we're outta here!

Soli Deo Gloria. All things that we do and go through, in life, are for our gracious Lord and Saviour's glory. Live like it!
