One Step Closer!

Leaving California
It was a whirlwind leaving California.  We celebrated Tori’s 1st birthday, said goodbye to Goodbye to Jonifamily, friends and sweet neighbors we have come to love and appreciate so very much, and packed up our home.  When we look back on the past years the Lord has given us during this time of preparation, we will always remember them as some of the sweetest times for all of us.  They have been years filled with friendships, love, beauty, excitement and fruitful ministry and we are deeply thankful for them.

Goodbye to Paul YochimWe had a wonderful time saying goodbye to Joni!  She is such a blessing and gave tremendous encouragement to Jordan and our family in the midst of such a big move and life transition.

 

Packing the Shipping Container

We are continually reminded that man makes his plans, but the Closing ContainerLord directs his steps!  Extremely dangerous fires in the Houston area delayed our shipping container and pushed back our plans for loading.  On human terms, this seemed like aBooks for Ministry significant setback, but God brought the right help at the perfect time and we were able to load and lock the container!

Saying Goodbye

Goodbye to Paul TautgesThis has been a continual season of Goodbye to Grandmasaying goodbye.  It was such a joy to see Tori loving time with Grandma Anderson (who is 103 years old!).  Tori’s eyes would light up and she would wave excitedly every time her great-grandmother would enter the room.  We are currently enjoying time with some of Jordan’s family and saying goodbye in the Dallas area.

What’s Next

The department of immigration in Fiji has been working on our work permit and Tori on Bikerequested additional documentation, so we are still trusting the Lord with every aspect of our move to Fiji!  We are currently scheduled to fly out of Los Angeles to Fiji on April 28, but are confident in the plans that God has established.  Please pray that each and every aspect of this process will strengthen our trust in the Lord and bring glory to Him as He continues to provide!
