The time that we have been preparing for over the last several months has almost arrived! On January 29, we head out. We’ll go to Kansas City for a few days of training. From there, we have to go the long way around to San Francisco in order to avoid the snowy Colorado mountains, so it will take us about 5 days of driving to arrive. If all goes well, we’ll reach our new home on February 6!
As we move into this new time in our lives, we would greatly appreciate it if you kept us in your thoughts and prayers. Moving can be stressful. When we leave Cincinnati, we will leave friends behind. We will be far from our families. And we’ll be driving for a long time. As difficult as all of that is, however, we’re also excited for what God has in store for us in Palo Alto. We know that moving to Palo Alto to study and be missionaries is what we are supposed to do, what God desires for us, and that brings us peace.
We couldn’t have gotten to this point in our journey if it wasn’t for each and every one of you. All of your love and support, through prayer, financial donations, talking with and/or hosting us, and more has meant more to us than many of you may realize. We can’t even begin to express our gratitude for each and every one of you, but know that we are more than thankful that each of you has been and will be a part of our lives.
If any of you would like to contact us while we are in California, my (Elizabeth) email is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Paul’s email is: email@example.com.
If you would like to send us a letter, our street address will be: 2428 Middlefield Road, Palo Alto, CA 94301
Also, we are still a bit short of our fundraising goal, so if you or anyone you know would like to donate, you can visit our website here: web.nazarene.org/goto/CaliforniaDreaminig
We love and appreciate all of you! Keep your eye out for updates as we move through this journey. It is our hope to write updates at least once a month, though hopefully it will be more often than that!
Thanks in advance for sticking with us!
