Slow Blogging Ahead

Category: Family :: Permalink

As you’ve no doubt noticed, I haven’t been blogging much lately. Too many other things have been happening and I just haven’t had the time to sit down and work on any entries. What other things? you ask. Well….

At the end of January, I accepted a call from Reformation Covenant Church in Oregon City, Oregon, to serve as a pastor commissioned to plant a church in Medford in southern Oregon. We’re looking forward to the work there, but in the meantime there’s a lot to be done here.

My last Sunday at Covenant Reformed Church was February 26, and my time as the pastor of that congregation finished at the end of February. And now Moriah and I are focusing almost completely on getting ready for the move. In particular, we’re getting rid of things we don’t want and packing the things we do, not least our basement full of books.

Today was my last Bible study at the Grande Prairie Regional College. Tomorrow, I’ll be speaking for the Varsity Christian Fellowship worship time. And that will mark the end of my two-and-a-half years as the VCF Chaplain. I’ve greatly enjoyed working with the students — and some of the faculty — and I’ll miss them. Maybe I can do something similar when I get to Medford.

Our house finally sold last week for a little less than we were asking but a lot more than I bought it for three years ago. We’ve also purchased a house in Medford. Later this week, I hope to be able to apply for my visa. Your prayers are appreciated.

Blogging will likely be sporadic until we get settled in at our new place. But then, as regular readers of this blog will know, that’s pretty much par for the course anyway.
