Another Move and some prayer

 I will just make a long story short and say this: we are moving back to Virginia. Early September we are packing up yet another moving truck and trekking back across the country to Chesapeake. 

It is a bitter sweet thing. It will be so hard to move away from Sean's family. We love them all dearly. We are excited to be back with family and friends in Virginia. Our plan is to hang there for a few months and then go up to northern Virginia on a church plant that Sean's cousin Eric will be leading. We are in faith for all that God will do and are very excited. 

Also, we have some sad news that my Aunt Mary, who I love so much, just got news of cancer. Please keep her in your prayers. I know that God can do amazing things and she is one of the strongest people I know. My mom will be up in Michigan a lot to help her. It will be nice to be closer, VA to MI is only a good days drive, so i am hoping to be able to visit as well.
Thank you for your prayers!

Katie, I'll be praying for your aunt. Your mom is one of the most amazing women that I know, and I'm sure she will be such a comfort and help to your aunt. We are happy that you are moving back. I can imagine Rebekah will be really excited. I hope and pray that you are doing well and look forward to seeing you soon. Hugs!
