Well, it's time I give you an update as to what is happening in our lives right now.

Last fall, Ed inquired about a preaching position in Craig, Colorado. The congregation was interested in him and asked us to come down for an interview. So, in November we traveled to Colorado for a long weekend. They ended up offering him the position before we left town. After much thought and prayer, Ed excepted the job on the condition that we could sell our house.

So, for the last few months we have been eagerly working on the house to get it completed to put on the market. Last week we did get the sign in the yard and a call to have our first showing yesterday.

Wednesday Ed received a call in the office from the president of the company stating that they have decided to close the office here in Bozeman. Ed is now currently "unemployed." This is an answer to prayer, we believe, to show us that we are indeed on our way to Craig, Colorado. However, the next few months will be trying as we still have bills to be paid! My manager said that I could work more "full time" in the office. Ed has called a few clients to see if they have work he can do for them. We are doing the best we can to get through this tough economic time.

Now we are more eager to get the house sold so that we can close this chapter of our lives and move into the next chapter. We don't plan on leaving here until June and hope that our house can sell during that time. We would like to ask you to continue to pray for us as we make this transition.

I truly believe/know you'll be JUST FINE through this, because of your wise decisions and hard work in the past and present, but that doesn't mean this doesn't come as a blow. How wonderful in a way, that it seems VERY obvious that you were/are headed in the right direction with the move to Craig!

We'll be praying for a good sale of your house.

It's such a horrible thought though, for us to lose you... ... not going to think about it.

Wow, it does sound like things are moving in the direction of Craig. Sorry the circumstances could not be better. However, as Sydni wrote, you are so great at making good money decisions, I bet you guys will do well with this transition time. (I remember when Arie was out of work and he would go grocery shopping with me...very odd but fun!)

I will keep you on my prayer list for a quick sale and easy transition.

Can't wait to hear how the Lord will iron all of this out.

Annnnd, I TOTALLY understand your feelings of being ready to close one chapter of your life, so that you can move on to the next. (sigh) When will we ever see you again....
