My husband has accepted a job offer at Lakeside Church in Guelph, as a new Student Ministries Pastor. He will be working on a team, with two other young men who will also be working in Student Ministries. My husband will be starting his new job in the middle of August. We will be moving to Guelph in September.
We are sad that he will be leaving his internship at our current church, Compass Point in Burlington. We are sad to leave our church family, after only one year. I'm sad to leave all my nursery babies and friends that I have made. I'm sad that my dream to live in the same city as my Mom has died.
At the same time, we are excited, happy...elated at this opportunity. I am so incredibly proud of my husband for getting the job at Lakeside. I am excited that our new home is two minutes away from our church. A huge prayer answered. I am so excited that the townhouse we are moving into has massive windows. Another prayer answered. (we live in a basement, so windows are sorta like heaven around here).
But more importantly, way more importantly, I am excited to reach out to broken people. I am excited to raise my family in this church, because I believe, with all my heart, that our family will be raised in Guelph. That this is our church. The church. For us. A church for broken people. Just like me.
