It's official!

Quentin met with Pastor Kemper today to let him know that we've decided to be a part of First Baptist Church. Q will be his assistant until he retires in January. Then we will be the new pastor and pastor's wife of the church. Exciting! Our last Sunday here is on August 16, then we will begin commuting to Lafayette for services.

We are excited with how the Lord has orchestrated this big event in our lives. I know He will continue to guide us and give us wisdom in the days ahead. Here are some prayer requests that we're asking everyone to pray for during his transition time.

1. Continued strength and focus to finish our ministry here with excellence.
2. That our condo will sell within the next few weeks, as we can move into the parsonage in Lafayette at the beginning of September.
3. That we'll have enough time and energy to finish up the packing at our place and in Q's office.
4. That Q will be able to find a part-time job as things will be very tight for us starting out in a small church.
5. That we'll bond quickly with the folks at First Baptist Church, and that Q will learn much during these next few months on how to run a church.

Thanks so much for your prayers and support.

I will praise thee forever, because thou hast done it. Psalm 52:9

thanks so much for your prayers and encouragement, ladies.:) Christina--Lafayette is about an hour away from Fort Collins. I'm so glad that we get to stay in Colorado.
