It's official!  Joe has taken a call to pastor Faith Presbyterian Church in Cheraw, SC and was installed there as the new pastor this Sunday night, May 18th.

We have been blessed beyond measure by our time at Covenant Presbyterian in Rockingham, NC
and have made special friendships and are so thankful for all that the Lord has been doing in the hearts and lives of that congregation!

My head is still spinning a bit, but we are getting excited about all that the Lord has prepared for us in SC.  Cheraw has been dubbed the "prettiest little town in Dixie" and is situated on the Pee Dee River, rich with Civil War history, with tree lined streets, a great Parks & Rec dept, a State park with a lake and lots of outdoor activity opportunities and best of all, some wonderfully friendly people!
The Lord has been graciously and patiently affirming over the most recent months that this is the move He has planned for our family. 

We have a closing date of early June on a house there.  (Our home in Whispering Pines sold in December if you missed/forgot that bit of info!  God is good and His ways are perfect).
The kids will be attending Faith Christian Academy next year, a ministry of the church and located in the old Cheraw Primary School bldg. in the middle of the historic downtown area, blocks from where Sherman camped for a while as he marched through.  Emily will enjoy the academics, the well-stocked library and well...Nate will get to play soccer & basketball IF he studies hard enough!
I will be working part time as a CNA Instructor and am still amazed at how those details were planned and what a huge blessing that is for me!
