"Well, we're moving on up to....."

The time has come to share the latest news regarding the family that lives on the Fulton funny farm. Wait for it, wait for it.........we are moving back to Indiana in about 5 weeks.
So - here are the skimpy details. Dave is going to be fulfilling his calling to preach and has several revivals and camp meetings scheduled for the future. In order to be able to do this in the most efficient way, a move back up north is necessary. Many, many hours of prayer and family discussions have preceded this decision! I actually cannot tell you how many - I lost count a long time ago! Financially it is the best decision for our family. We are moving to the Frankfort area where there is a great church for our family and a great school for Ashley to finish up her last two years and someone has offered Dave a job for when he is not in meetings somewhere.
As to the children, David has been very understanding and knows that it doesn't really affect him too much. He will have Christa and that is the most important thing to him. He can just come to IN for his time off and see ALL his family! Carrie will be going with us for several reasons but this is what she feels she should do and yes, her and Josh are doing well but struggling with being apart! By the way, I could NOT ask for a better young man for my daughter to be in love with! Our family wouldn't trade him for anyone and I KNOW Carrie won't give him away!!! She will be pursuing her college education in other ways. Ashley is nervous yet very excited about the move. She is pretty happy to be going back north to be closer to her family and has on more than one occasion mentioned the word "snow" which caused her Dad and I to go into cardiac arrest!!!!!
I really don't have a lot more details right now but I would ask that you pray for us ALL that God will bring the peace each one of our family needs and will give guidance where we need it!

We'll miss seeing you at Hobe Sound Bible Church! We will be praying for the move and for everyone to handle it and not have any heart attacks :)!

Well, I doubt we'll see you more often but it seems like it might be more likely. :) We'll be praying for you as God reminds us!!

Leah,
I'm sure this news did NOT make Donna's day! Just tell her I have a great plan...if she flies in to see me, I will drive her the two hours to your house so she can see you, and then we'll drive five more hours so she can see her sister and then backtrack the same way! Of course, it has been three years and she still hasn't come to see me...maybe you'll be the reason she needs! Hope your transition goes well...it sounds like you are coming home so, welcome back!

So excited about your move. I actually checked on a house for you the other day. I just passed it and there was a sign in the yard and I was curious. I'll give ya the details later if you want them. Probably not something you will want though.
I hope the next few weeks go smoothly for you. Let us know if there's anything we can do on this end.
