5 Years of Ministry

Today marks the fifth year I've been in paid ministry. 10 years ago I would have no idea God would have lead me where He has me. I've been asked many times in my life "where do you see yourself in 2, 5, or 10 years" and I would have never thought this (I'm sure most of my high school friends would say the same thing).

I still remember like it was yesterday when Kyle Bridges let me become a youth volunteer. And I remember when Charlie Waller, Carol Edmunds, Yvonne Sternberg, and Jim Todd took a risk on this youth pastor candidate. Good grief was I ever a rookie!

It's been an awesome journey and the exciting part is it still feels like it's just beginning. I'm looking forward to what the next 5 years will hold.

In March we had our Missions Conferene and my hubby felt God is calling us to missionaries to Nampula, Mozambique. He is an elder intern at our church and made this desire known to them and they said that they had been praying for this desire to be placed on Barry's heart. I have always wanted to be a missionary but it never quiet seemed to be a reality....In just 18 months our family could be thousands of miles from everyone we love. If you asked me at the beginning of the year if this is where I thought we would be I would have said no.
