I am so excited to see what God is going to do with my life. In March I left on what I call a journey. I went to Florida, Connecticut an California to visit family as well as places working with young people aging out of foster care. I believe most of you know that since last November I have felt very strongly this is where God wants me to focus my energies. Which I am very excited about.
I talked with some amazing people and visited a few places to see the work that is being done for these lost young people. When I was in East Hartland, Connecticut, where I grew up, I was surprised to find myself thinking I could actually move back there. Althought Hartland is a wonderful place to grow up I never had the desire, nor did I ever think I would, to move back there. In the center of town is an old building which has been owned by many people through the years. The building has been in forclosure for quite a few years. As I drove past and thought about the building I felt God impressed on me what it should be and shared this with Pastor Roger Viksnes. Since then (Easter week) we have both been praying about this and looking into the cost and feesability.
While I was in Florida I visited with my cousin who offered me a great deal on renting their condo. So, I have been (am) moving to Sarasota, Fl as sson a I can take care of details for my moher-in-law and tie up loose ends up here. When in CA many of my friends asked me about moving to Fl and I said, “It feels like my best option right now. Unless God puts a big arrow in from of me and shows me someplace else I am suppose to be.
Well, that arrow might be showing itself through the clouds. Pastor Roger is going to look at the building on Monday so I am asking all of you to pray for God’s direction and UNMISTAKABLE leading on this. If the church does purchase it I will move to Connecticut to help with fundraising and renovations. We would like to make the upstairs rooms for housing ageing out foster kids and help them have time to get on their feet.
I appreciate your prays and am excited to see what comes of this property and where I end up. If you don’t want updates and/or do not want to be on my prayer list please let me know and I’ll remove you. Thank you and May God continure to direct all of our lives as we live for Him. Kristin
