As you may know, I have not yet completed my first book, Help, I’m Married to a Pastor!; however, it looks like it is already time to start working on the sequel:

Help, I’m Married to a Pastor…AGAIN!

Did we see this coming four months ago?  No.

Do we sense this is what the Lord is calling us to do?  Yes. 

Our flight back to the United States is on the sixth of December, and, instead of returning to Chile in February, Max will begin his appointment as the senior pastor of Edgewood Free Methodist Church on January 1st.  (Click here to read our announcement letter.)

Can you say, “Wow”?  As Steven Curtis Chapman says in one of his songs, “This is the great adventure!”

We are not home yet, friends, and until we are, there is a lot of work to do wherever God has called us.

Thank you, in advance, for your prayers for us.  We have just fourteen days to finish preparations for moving back to the United States.  These have been days of extreme emotions – from deep sadness to utter excitement – and back again.

Throughout this entire time of uncertainty, Max and I asked the Lord to be preparing each one of our childrens’ hearts in the way it needed to be.  God has been ever so gracious to do just that.  Of course there were tears and questions when we first told them, but now they are excited and filled with anticipation for what is coming.  I am learning a lot from watching them.

So…with the Lord being our helper, we press on.  Keep pressing on as well, my friend!

 Hebrews 12:1 (NIV) Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.
