We announced yesterday that we are leaving staff. The website will start looking a bit different over the next few days, as I make it more current-chapter-of-life friendly.
We are so excited for the clarity God has given us for this transition, and I want to take a minute to clarify something for anyone out there who might be reading this and thinking some variant of the following, which I recieved in an email from somebody I’d been trying to meet with for support:
I’m going to go ahead and assume that my poor communication and slowness in getting back to you this week was not the cause of you leaving staff. That would be sad for me.
My answer to this person was that they were a part of God’s answer to our prayers for clarity. He sovereignly had folks not be able to meet with us, come off of our team, and decrease their giving in such a way as to make it abundantly clear that we should leave staff. We are so thankful that folks like her didn’t get back to us.
So if you are reading this message and are sad that we are no longer on staff (effective Sept 2, but please continue donating through Nov 30), and you hold yourself partially responsible, stop it. God is the one who called us off staff. Rejoice with us that He used you to do it.
If you want to be part of Him calling us to our next job, pass this link on to all of your friends: Resumé. Or don’t. Because either way, God’s gonna use you. 🙂
