By now many of you have already heard that I have resigned my position as pastor of Four Winds Christian Fellowship in Marshall, MI. For some time now, Amy and I have felt the Lord leading us elsewhere but did not know where or what the timing would be. After much prayer and seeking the Lord we believed that we found the right time to move on. We resigned last Monday and are now earnestly seeking the Lord on our future direction. There seems to be the possibility of a ministry job opening up in Portage for me, but we are still seeking the face of the Lord on that matter. Amy and I both are so excited to see what the Lord has planned for our future. As the song says, “our future is wide open”. Wherever he leads us, we will go!
On top of all this happening, it has been a busy week. Yesterday I met with one of the leaders at the church in Portage to see whether the Lord was opening that door. I am hoping to hear back from them today or tomorrow. In the mean time, Amy and I are preparing to lead worship on a missions trip in Gulfport, Mississippi. I am excited for the opportunity we have to work together on this trip. After the trip, we are planning on taking a brief retreat of our own in Georgia. Please pray that the Lord will guide us in some of the big decisions we have to make in the coming weeks.
