Goodbye Florida!

"Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life." Proverbs 13:12

It's been a long time coming but I am excited to announce that Keith got a new job!!!! And it's not just any job, it is the exact answer to prayer we never thought could happen! God is so very kind and so very sovereign :o) Keith will be working at the Sovereign Grace Ministries Pastors College in Gaithersburg, Maryland! He'll be teaching New Testament Greek, helping the students with research, administrative stuff for the college, and assisting Jeff Purswell, the dean, with anything else he might need. Jeff was really Keith's inspiration for going to seminary to begin with, so Keith is so excited to get to go work right along side him to help equip men to serve the church!!

We'll be moving to Gaithersburg in just a couple weeks and leaving behind so many friends who have really become our family. I'm not going to start reminiscing now, I'm not ready to cry yet :o) We're going to look for a place to live in the next week, and then possibly moving the next weekend, so this might be our last Sunday at Metro :o( I won't be wearing any make-up Sunday in preparation for all the tears! For now we are just rejoicing in God's great kindness in providing this job, which will be so much more than a job!


  1. Congrats!!! What a sweet answer to prayer. Thanks so much for sharing. I LOVE the DC area!

  2. Wow! Congratulations! What a fast move! We just moved into a new house and I am exhausted! I will pray your move goes smoothly and you get tons of help loading and unloading! God is so kind!

  3. CONGRATULATIONS!!! What a wonderful answer to your many prayers! We are excited for you and will be praying that the Lord will provide sufficient grace for the changes over the next several months! We will miss you, though...

  4. I can't believe it!!! Keith is going to be my greek instructor. We are so excited for you...and for us. When are you coming, where are you living, is there anything we can do to help you. Please tell Keith we are thrilled!

  5. Amanda and Keith - Congratulations on the new job and the move. I will come visit you guys when I am in D.C. Wow, I wish I could meet you once before you leave but I am out of town for a couple of weeks. Have a great move and God Bless. Love to the kids!

  6. Betty says....I am VERY excited for ya'll, but will certainly miss you. Greek, huh???

    I will miss babysitting Isaac & Samy, too. Hope you are able to find another "Grannie" there!
