The Answer We Have All Been Waiting For

The time has finally come!

Last July we moved to Moscow, Idaho eager then to know where the Lord would lead us.  We have spent the past 9.5 months asking that the Lord would speak clearly.  We have considered more than 10 cities in the NorthWest.  Looking at them through the lenses:

Where will the team fit best, What is the Lord currently doing in each place, What could the Lord use us for in each place, Where is there need, Where can reconciliation and restoration be facilitated (the list of lenses we looked at each place through goes on…)

After much prayer, anticipation, meeting with pastors and current church plants in each location and times of just sitting to hear the voice of God, we are walking in faith that we have heard the Lord speak.

He has told us to move to…

So off we will go, in 2.5 months to live in Spokane, WA!

Please pray:

  • Provision of insight into the needs of the city both spiritual and physical
  • An excitement and confidence for each team member in where the Lord is leading
  • Ability to break the city down and zero in on the right neighborhood for us to move into and share Christ’s love (with that, provision of housing and other practical needs for the team there)

(Thanks to D.O. for the beautiful letter collage.)

    Well Well Well. Autumn and I are sure happy to have you so close by! Having done ministry in Spokane ourselves we know the tremendous need that city has and we are excited that the Lord has called and equipped such brave and willing souls. We will be continuously praying for you and for effectiveness God will have through and in you. Here is some legal advice on your new state:
    # All lollipops are banned.

    # A law to reduce crime states: “It is mandatory for a motorist with criminal intentions to stop at the city limits and telephone the chief of police as he is entering the town.”

    # It is illegal to paint polka dots on the American flag.

    # People may not buy a mattress on Sunday.

    # All motor vehicles must be preceded by a man carrying a red flag (daytime) or a red lantern (nighttime) fifty feet in front of said vehicle.

    # It is illegal to pretend that one’s parents are rich.

    # You are not allowed to breast feed in public.

    # When two trains come to a crossing, neither shall go until the other has passed.

    # You are breaking the law if you sell or place in the stream of commerce a crib that has: corner posts that extend more than 1/16-inch above end panels; slats more than 2 3/8 inches apart; a mattress support that releases easily from corner posts; cutout designs on the end panels; tears in mesh or fabric; missing or loose screws, bolts, or hardware; sharp edges, points, or rough surfaces on wood surfaces that are not smooth and free from splinters, splits or cracks. The new Infant Crib Safety Act in California (AB 3760, Speier), Colorado (SB 98-023,Pascoe and Morrison) and Washington State (SSB 6229, Kohl and Pennington) states that “no commercial user shall manufacture, retrofit, sell, contract to sell or resell, lease, sublet or otherwise place in the stream of commerce, a full-size or non-full-size crib that is unsafe for any infant using the crib.

    # You cannot buy meat of any kind on Sunday.
