The E-Mail

Here is a copy of the e-mail I sent out yesterday.....

Just wanted to send you a quick update by e-mail. After much prayer and consideration Chris and I have applied to be missionaries with Cadence International. Cadence works with military chaplains in assisting their ministries. Chris first became aware of Cadence when he lived in Germany and Cadence had youth pastors to assist the chaplains there. This made a huge impact on Chris' life. Cadence also offers Hospitality House ministry. This is where we feel God calling us. We would offer a home away from home for soldiers and their families. Our ministry would provide bible studies, mom's groups (hopefully a Mops group), day-trips, one-on-one discipleship, evangelism, and fellowship time. We would also provide home-cooked meals. Most of you know that for the last few years we have hosted game night in our home doing some of this very thing. We had a home interview Sunday and it went very well. Please be in prayer for us as we continue with this process.As of right now, our tentative plans are to move back to Phenix City in May. Find a place to rent or if someone has a place to loan us for a few months. We would go to Missionary Orientation , Training, and Commissioning in June. Then we would spend the next few months visiting churches and individuals to raise support. If you would like to see more about Cadence, you can visit their website at

Thank you all for keeping us in your prayers. We are enjoying this time as our chapter in "seminary life" comes to a close. We have made some wonderful friends here that I will truly miss. The sadness of that is lessened by the excitement of what God is doing in our lives for the next chapter.
