2011: We're Moving!

So, as predicted, in this post over a year ago, 2010 was a year where we stayed put. We didn't move in 2010. The first year since we've been married, and the first year for me with no moving at all since 2000!!! In fact, the condo was the place we've stayed the longest (almost double!) than any other place we've lived in our married life. We enjoyed some of the stability. But...
... as I wrote about in this post last June, we have been wanting do the the Cares ministry in Charleston. This week, things have been finalized for us to move into Bolton's Landing here in West Ashley in order to be the Cares team there! We'll be moving over there on February 18th. We're so excited! It will be quite an adjustment as we learn to change our schedules around to focus more on our neighbors and building relationships with them. This is one of the reasons I am taking a break from grad school. We'll be planning about 3 events per month for our community and doing visits to neighbors when they move in, when they are close to being out of their leases, and also if we hear someone is sick or in need of some company.But, we feel like this will be a great fit for us, and a great opportunity to meet lots of new people and hopefully for us to be able to invest into people's lives.
