Two Sabbath’s ago, Richie was officially introduced as the new Teen & Youth Pastor at Wahroonga Seventh-day Adventist Church for 2013.
We were there to support our friends Sam and Warren as the church body held a special prayer in the main service. Since both Richie and I were there, Wahroonga’s Senior Pastor took the opportunity to get us up the front to introduce us. Richie was then asked to lead the congregation in the season of prayer for Warren and two other church members also battling cancer.
This means we will be leaving Kellyville Church at the end of this year and moving to Wahroonga. It will be filled with new opportunities and new challenges working with a new crew. I’m particularly looking forward to walking through the bush to church each Sabbath! Richie will be much closer to home and when the little “Creamies” come along, it will be awesome. :)
I feel God has really been preparing my heart for this move since the middle of the year – even though it has really only been in the works for the last few months. When people heard that the school was closing down, the first thing they would ask is what Richie going to do for work next year. It is probably quite selfish and narrow-minded of me to question whether God has moved Richie and I to Wahroonga to be closer to Sam and Warren in this very difficult season of their life. Of course this is probably just a tiny piece of God’s overall plan for us. Nonetheless, whatever the call and purpose, we ask you to keep us in your prayers.

Here’s to 2013!
