Here we are, send us...

Welcome to our very first blog. (Thanks for the encouragement, Kim!) We intend for this to be a snapshot into our lives as we prepare for the journey that will lead our family into the ministry.

As you probably know, we are planning to move in June so Micah can study for his Masters of Divinity degree. Coming to this decision has been a long spiritual and emotional journey for us. But, in the end, we are willing to step out in faith and say "here we are Lord. Send us."

The thought of leaving family, friends, jobs, and a church we love can be overwhelming at times. But, God is faithful, and He keeps opening doors for us to walk through. And, He provides encouragement in the most unexpected of places. Even this morning, as we attended the funeral of a wonderful woman with an amazing heart for the Lord, we felt humbled that we will have the opportunity to serve those who have lost loved ones in the future. It would be a blessing for Micah to lead a service that praised and glorified the Lord in the way that the service did this morning. Again and again, we are reminded that God is good, all the time.

As we go through this journey, both as we prepare for our move, and then adjust to seminary life, we would cherish your prayers. And, we would love to know how we can be praying for you as well.

Thank you for reading, and thank you for being a part of our family's life. God bless!

Darci and Micah

Darci- This is great! I am so glad that you took the step to begin blogging and share this amazing time in your life with your family and friends. Your journey over the next several months and years will no doubt be exiciting and challenging all at the same time.

I am glad you found the words to begin and I look forward to more posts in the future. It will be a neat way to keep in touch when you are away and to know what you need lifed in prayer during this transition time and always.

Many Blessings,

Kim
