An Update: the Abridged Version

Okay; time for a quick update on the Kealens.

Back in April, Nat received an e-mail from a pastor in the state, asking if we would consider an associate position at their church. This in and of itself was an answer to an almost seven-year prayer of ours!
God continued to lead, and we had a three-month process of meeting with the pastor and church leaders. To make a long story short, we received a call from Germantown Hills Baptist Church on Sunday, July 15.

The last three weeks have been a whirlwind, so here are a few highlights:

We put the house is on the market
We gave a thirty-day notice to Regular Baptist Press
I am finishing two major projects for RBP before we leave
We are packing up our belongings and finishing up our ministries at First Baptist Church.

We are moving in twelve days!!!!!!!!!!!!

Praise the Lord for His goodness; we could have never planned this adventure in our wildest dreams!

Happy Anniversary, Love!

Has it really been eight years?!?!
I wish I had some really wonderful poem to post here. I wish I had some humorous thought to share. I wish there was some way to tell you how precious you are to me. But I don't have any of these. Instead, I have simple words.
I love you.
I love our boys.
I look forward to watching you fulfill your God-given gifts as you minister to the teens at our new church.
I cannot wait to work alongside you and raise our boys.
Most of all,
I am looking forward to the next day, the next moment that God allows me to be your wife.
