When we moved to Mexico City last year, we stepped into so many unknowns.
We didn't know what exactly our life would look like - how exactly we would travel around the city . . . how long it would take to get from one place to another, what our days and afternoons would look like, who we would be spending time with, what parts of the city we would be traveling to, what size living room we would need . . .

we scrambled to find a home as soon as we got here  (and it has been a fantastic place!), but even as we settled in, we knew it might not be the best place for us long term . . . because . . . well . . . there were just so many unknowns.

So we committed to re-evaluate our living situation after our first year here. 

We still don't know all the answers to all those questions (and the million more we had) . . . but we know a whole lot more that we did when we first came,
and so we are trying to take what we now know about our family, our city and our ministry,
think strategically,
beg God for wisdom,
and begin our search anew.

(it's an overwhelming task . . . and I'm kind of nervous)


  1. Elliott just read your update to the whole Flock as we were finishing dessert tonight. We are all praying for you and trusting that God will reveal to you His plan for you at just the right time. Love and hugs from Texas!

  2. that makes me smile - a LOT. thank you to the whole Flock!

  3. the nervous part is so normal--we tend to re-evaluate things every year, so even if you make a change now, you can know that you don't have to be locked into it forever, and you can evaluate it again next year, you know? We are praying...
