It's Official...

After much prayer and consideration, we are announcing...
we are moving to Minot, North Dakota.
Anthony will be on the ministerial staff in the church there where his brother, Jesse, pastors at Apostolic Faith Church.
I have been hired at the hospital there, Trinity Health, working in their pediatric department and floating to the NICU and ICU.
While it is difficult and very sad to say goodbye to our family and friends here in Oregon, this is a great opportunity for our family, and we are excited about the possibilities for our future.
The kids are very excited, although I'm not sure they completely grasp the meaning of "moving to North Dakota".
Our kids are very social, so they are hyped about getting to make new friends, having a big Sunday School to attend, and having lots of kids their own age to play with.  It will be great to be around some of Anthony's family that we don't get to see very often, as well.
Because my job starts on February 27th, we will be leaving Oregon on the 22nd, to hopefully give us enough time to make it there, should the weather be bad and the streets be less than ideal for traveling.  The rumor is, moving to Minot, North Dakota, in the middle of winter, can be difficult.  We are praying for traveling mercies, and that all goes as smooth as possible, as we make our trek to the state that I've often heard referred to as "the coldest place in the US".  Not sure if that's exactly true or not, but the negative temperatures that I've heard report of lately, make me think it could very well be the case!
We are thankful for all of the support we have received by so many about this decision, and covet your prayers as we embark on this journey.  We feel we are definitely in the will of God, and are excited to see what the future holds!
