Up Close: Transition

I think it’s time I gave a little update on where we are right now… I’m not going to lie, I have been avoiding it.

Some times it’s hard to find the words to explain your life, especially when you don’t even fully understand it.

Transition has seemed to be the theme of our lives for the past 4 years since we moved here.  It seems like since the day we moved back to Mexico with our (then) small family, it has been nothing but change and adjusting to new things.

So where are we now? In transition.  Ha ha.   We no longer serve with EFF.  It was time for us to step back.  We are still more than willing to serve with them as needed, but we felt it was time to move off the property and reevaluate a bit.   It was our choice, and we have peace about it.  For the summer Saul has a temporary job working with an organization called Live Different.  He is doing a building project for them on their property and helping build houses for people in need in our community.  After that?  Well we are not sure yet.  We know God is the one leading and we know all of our experiances up to now have had a purpose.  We have learned so much.  We aren’t sure what the next step is yet, but we know it will be good.
