| Well my friends it has been a mighty long time since our last mission report 2 years ago. So many things have happened since 2020 as we all can think back on. For our family, it was a change in life direction. |
Our change began at the end of February 2020 when Chris and I attended Dr. Nedley's 10 day in house Depression and Anxiety Recovery Program at Weimar, CA. Our mindset and life was changed because of that program and God has been healing us and directing us to be more like him daily.
We still had plans to go to Indonesia up until June of 2020. Both of us got the impression God wanted us to stay in the USA. That if we were to go to Indonesia we would loose all that we had worked hard for in our mental health recovery. So we made the very hard decision to stay in the USA and to settle for now.
Chris had a job at his previous employment before mission work but we needed to move out on our own, we were still living with my parents, so we started looking to find housing in the country. We couldn't afford nor find any place to live close enough to Chris's work. So then we began looking outside of Washington state, he interviewed in Kansas and that looked promising but nothing came of it. And then he looked into and interviewed for 2 jobs in Minnesota just 2 hours from his parents home. We felt impressed the job in Elbow lake was the job. We were able to find 9.5 acres of land with a house on it. His parents helped us a lot since moving in. We have continued our mental health recovery and are still in treatment. We ended up there one year when Chris needed a change in work location. We got in touch with some college friends in Kansas and just 3 months later we are here. Garnett, KS a small town, friendly people and new but scary adventures.
Chris is working 4 days in our friends carpenter shop and I work one day there for now. Near the end of may I will be watching 3 cute kids along with my own for some extra financial help.
We still have a lot of mental health work as that never ends. Old wounds, new wounds, anxieties of this life and sadness experienced, all need to be processed for healthy living. We are so grateful to both of our parents for helping us in this move. We could not have done it without their assistance.
A few new adventures are on the horizon, one is that Chris is setting up his own maintenance shop at the local airport (Garnett Municipal Airport) this is one reason why we moved here as well. A second adventure is joining our friends in selling crafts, produce and plants at the local farmers market. It will be fun for all of us... we hope. Finally Chris and I are starting a home church with the Simple Church Network (simplechurchathome.com). We are blessed to be meeting our neighbors and others from the community. We look forward to building a community in our home and around this lovely town.
