Moving day is just around the corner.

First off, I wanted to let you know that on behalf of Micah Life, the new ministry we are starting in El Salvador, we are sending out weekly (or bi-weekly) email updates. I know you are used to getting emails from me only about once every couple of months or so, so I didn't want to bombard anyone that wasn't interested. But if you do want to receive those emails in your inbox, please subscribe to our Micah Life mailing list. Below is our latest update.
Yikes! ...We can hardly believe that two weeks from today we will be driving to El Salvador with our moving truck. It still hasn't really hit home that we are leaving. I definitely have moments, though, when I get really sentimental. Especially when I see how much fun Ian has playing with his best friends Nico and Emmy (and Erin!). Or when I watch Lulu romping around with Buddy, chasing rabbits and lizards around this spacious property. Or when I witness the way Izzy interacts with the boys and I know that they have a bond of trust that has been forged through months and years of love and counsel and grace. Or when I think about the friends here that have invested time and prayer into our lives and our marriage. We will certainly miss this beautiful place. But really, what we will miss the most are these people.
Also, how do you explain to a two-year-old that you are moving to another country? To a new house? Far away from most everything that has become such a part of your daily routine? 

I'm not gonna lie, guys. It's hard.

Up to this point, I think we have been so consumed with figuring out the details - finding a place to live, renting a moving truck, packing boxes and bags and suitcases - and we haven't had a lot of time to reflect. But ready or not, here it comes! Yet even in the stress and busyness of it all, I have this overwhelming sense of peace that I'm sure is a little reminder from God saying "Hey! I've got this." And surely He does. But if you think of us at all over these next few weeks, would you mind saying a little prayer for us as we transition?
Praise Reports
  • Izzy signed the papers for the house we will be renting in El Salvador. He also was able to get a moving truck lined up for the 17th-18th!
  • God has been working in our hearts, especially teaching us to be patient and to rely on Him and trust Him to work out the details
  • Thanks to some generous donors, we were able to send in our Form 1023 to apply for our 501(c)3 status! Pray for favor and a quick response from the IRS.
  • While in El Salvador looking for a house, Izzy was also able to spend an afternoon sharing a meal with some of the kids on the streets. It was great to reconnect with a couple of the same kids he met last year when he was there and to meet some new faces.* (El Salvador has strict laws that prohibit showing the faces of minors in vulnerable conditions without parental consent... similar to the laws in the states regarding children in foster care. So for the time being we need to be very careful with the photos we post. Thanks for understanding!)
Prayer Requests
  • Moving day is March 18th!
  • Pray for us to get everything packed up in time and that we would end our time in Honduras well and connect with those who have meant so much to us here.
  • Pray for this time of transition as we will be learning new things and adjusting to life in El Salvador.

Micah Life was born in God's heart, and we are all just tools in His hands to bring it to fruition. Join us?
