A while ago, I posted that we were trying to figure out what comes next after our stint here, in London. Dave had originally signed a 2-year contract. We have honestly been thinking about our options since probably January. We have talked about them. We have turned down opportunities. And we finally know what we are doing next. We still don't know all the details - like where we'll be living a month from now... haha!
We do know that Dave is taking a job at Pomona College in Claremont, overseeing their endowment. He accepted their offer last week and turned in his resignation at World Vision. Please continue to pray for us as this month is going to be absolutely crazy! We have some last minute shenanigans planned with our friends (going to Wales for 4 days), Dave has a week-long trip to the Caribbean (and yes, I am extremely jealous, but one of us has to stay here and do some actual work!), then we have a week to pack/clean and we leave! We have movers coming the second week of October and will fly home to the US sometime around the 14th or 15th of October. Dave will start his new job the following week.
Please pray for us as we begin this new transition - selling and packing items in the UK, saying goodbye to friends, finding a house, figuring out how to furnish the house, waiting for our shipment from the UK (probably won't get all our things until the beginning of December), figuring out cars, staying in hotels and short-term housing until we find a place to live, flights, dealing with jet lag once again and on and on. Now... to take picture and list the items we need to sell!
