So long, B-32!

Over the last 5 years, Wade has had the privilege of being the Director of our Adult Bible Study class.  I have gotten to assist him with a few things, but he has been both the brains and the brawn.  ;)  He has done an exceptional job, and I couldn't be prouder of him!  I have seen him grow and learn and mature in his faith as God equipped him to lead our class.  It has been such a tremendous blessing!  We have been surrounded by the most precious people - people who have stepped up to the plate time and time again to serve the Lord by caring for His people.  They have given time and money in abundance over the years.  They have encouraged and supported Wade & I personally, and have given far more to us than we could ever repay. 

Over the last few months, we have felt the Lord calling us to serve in other ways, however.  Wade has stepped down as the Director, and we are trusting in the Lord to raise up new leadership.  It is sad for us, as it feels like the end of an era.  We love these people and have so enjoyed our time with them!  Although we will still be at the same church, things will change as we aren't in class together every week.  I am not great at change, and this feels like a big change.  :(  We are putting our faith in our Father to guide and direct each couple as He sees fit.  Lord, use us as you see fit to bring You glory!

We had one last social with all of our B-32 peeps on Friday.  They were so kind to give us cards and a very generous love offering.  We were so shocked by their generosity!  How beautiful is the Body of Christ!
