Saying "Yes"

Well...since there are a lot of you out there who still don't know our story as of late, this one's for you! (awkward wink) 

A few months ago Justin and I were feeling a strong desire to change the way we have been approaching our life in the long term. He, in particular, was feeling a change of heart about the direction we were heading and began to pray about what exactly this meant. As the weeks went on he began to have a stronger desire to work outside of the kitchen with something more hands on that would benefit more than just he and I. 

Fast forward a few months and many many prayers later to when we sold everything and abandoned our ideals of a career driven path. We are getting ready to move to Catalina Island to work with family friends there who will mentor and train us up to work full time in the mission field. We will work part time and the rest of the time invest in the lives of those in the small town of Avalon on the island. We both have a heart for hospitality and over the years have acquired the skills to serve people in a new way.  Long term we are praying about doing a Discipleship Training School through Youth With a Mission and possibly staffing full time with YWAM Yosemite. 

As we begin this new adventure we would ask for your prayers and we will do our best to update you all here weekly, if not more often. We are so excited to see where God takes us and how He will use us, but for now we are joyfully saying 'yes' and going. Official date of departure December 7th!
