Opening Up The Can of Corn

Well, the unthinkable has happened. We're leaving the sunshine state. Dana and I have decided to accept an offer from the Grand Central Church in Vienna, West Virginia. You read that right, West Virginia. I'm pretty surprised by it myself. However, we believe that this is where God is leading us and are excited about the adventure. We are very thankful for our time at Palo Alto and incredibly proud of the group of teens that we had the honor of working with. We told them about the move last night. There were lots of tears and lots of hugs, but they reacted to it so maturely that we feel like we've done what we were here to do. We will miss them more than I can possibly express by typing on a keyboard, but we know these kids are going to change the world.

So, my last Sunday at Palo Alto is currently slated for May 1. After that, we will move to West Virginia. We would love to have your prayers for everything and everyone involved in this transition. It was not an easy decision to come to, but we believe it is the right one. West Virginia, here we come. I guess I need to go buy some John Denver CD's.

Congratulations on the move. I feel confident that God will use at Grand Central as effectively as he has at Palo Alto.

Adam,
We need to have lunch or supper. So many links to keep open. New turns on the path and the way is foggy.
