THE MOMENT HAS ARRIVED!!

As a lot of you know, we have been waiting for Ben's final transfer interview to see if we will be moving or not, well....drum roll please!!!

HE GOT THE JOB AND WE WILL BE MOVING TO.....




COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO!!!!

We are so excited we can hardly stand it! We can't wait to have a house and a YARD! We are also very excited for a much lower cost of living, the gorgeous mountains everywhere (we will be sure to use those every chance we get) lots of members, a good job for Ben, and some family close by. Ben was there for a few days and says that it is totally "our style." I guess we will find out for sure as time goes on, but I have a hunch he is right on.
We know, without a doubt, that this is where we are supposed to be, and we feel it in our hearts. We have known all along that the Lord has a place for us, and now we know where it is. We don't know how long we will be there, but we do plan on settling right in and planting some seeds. We have no intention of a short-term stay, but as we all know, we are in the Lords hands...anything is possible.
Of course, we will miss it here in California. We have made friends here and we have had so many experiences that have helped make us who we are. We have grown so much in this place! We have enjoyed our time here and we have made the most of it for sure!
But, life goes on and we are so excited! We don't have the move date set yet, but we do plan on moving within the month.
