Moving In – Moving Ahead

The Process

On Sunday, July 12, 2015 we were officially commissioned by First Southern Baptist Church of Chula Vista to come on board as Music Minister. This is an unpaid position, but they have graciously given us the church parsonage to live in while on staff.

The house was in dire need of renovations and the church agreed to put aside a budget to bring it up to a livable state.

The Renovation

On July 18th, after the Men’s Breakfast, the church sent 12 volunteers to come and start prepping and painting the house, inside and out!

A Well Deserved Rest

After a 2 days of non-stop painting and prepping for new floors and juggling the kids between homes, the kids and I were ready for a break 😉 (Of course, Katherine never stops… She didn’t sleep until the wee hours of the night, if that!) There is still a bit more to do with paint and then the floors go in this week and then we officially move in!

Community

We are so absolutely blessed and grateful for this community! While we were sent here to help bring in and build community with  young families, we are overwhelmed with the love and support of this small church community that has welcomed us with arms wide open! Along with the volunteers, we’ve had groceries donated, other decorative items donated and just an amazing sense of family here!

Along with our new family, we are just as grateful and amazed at the love and support of our current community. From friends and family that allowed our family of 6 to stay in their homes to prayers, financial donations, donations from contractors, housewarming gifts and more, we couldn’t be more prepared for this new venture.

To all we say THANK YOU! We love you so much.

Time To Get To Work!

Now that we’ve had a moment to rest, we’ll still be juggling children around until the final move in and working from the new office.

Until next time, blessings on you and your families as we continue to move ahead.
