Hola to our family, friends, and future friends (In Kansas)

Thought it was about time to check in again for the faithful blogger(s) among us. Several incredibly facinating developments in our life. Well actually we can't think of anything facinating...so the regular old update will have to do. Here is a picture of Ashley preaching in Ohio.




The going away party for Seth (www.missionaryseth.blogspot.com). Many of his friends and family congregated to wish him well, bring gifts, eat food, worship together, and pray over the man himself a day or two before he left.

We moved out of our house today in preparation for our move to Kansas. (For those of you who don't know: we accepted an opportunity to move to Olathe Kansas to serve in a church there.This is Jonathan and Sandy Collins former church). Packing all of our many belongings filled up two truck loads (pickup truck loads). It's kind of fun not having a lot of stuff...I wonder what our moves will look like when we have kids.

The annoucement of us moving to Student Leadership and Oneighty went well...half of the kids were crying, and we tried not to. We'll really miss our incredible pastors, fellow leaders, and all the amazing students of Oneighty. Pastor Steve and Casey blessed and sent us from the stage in Tuesday's and Sunday's service. All the students prayed over us Tuesday and Student Leadership prayed over us Sunday during class. We love them and we already miss them.

We'll be moving to Olathe (suburb of Kansas City) before the first of May. If you choose to pray for us, please pray for supernatural wisdom, safety as we travel, and good gas mileage...

Fun survey question - how many of your relatives or close friends are from or have lived in Kansas (almost everyone we know has a connection there somehow)...let us know!

WHAT???? I'm gone for a week, and you guys are moving to Kansas!!!! Waaaaa!!! Actually, I'm sooo excited for what God is doing in your lives. Wow! You will really be missed, for sure!
And no, no relatives in Kansas. New Zealand, yes- Kansas, no.

for sure, no relatives in Kansas, but Trina's sitting here with me and her whole family is pretty much from Kansas. Would you have thought they were from anywhere else? Well, maybe some of them came down from some crazy other-worldly wilderness country in the sky and have made it their goal to overtake all the wild beasts of the earth with their amazing hunting tactics and... I'd just like to say, as a disclaimer for this horribly long and inane comment, that it's 12:54 am and we are zombified somnambulists who need to get some shut eye. Love you guys and we do so choose to pray for you and stuff. lots of love (and delerium) Lorelei & Trina

We know absolutely no family from Kansas but we agreed that we watched The Wizard of Oz enough growing up that we consider Dorthy and the gang part family! Does that count?

Your "if you choose to pray for us" comment made me laugh out loud. Sandy enjoyed my laughter so much that she laughed out loud. ----Thanks for the laughs...

I don't know very many people that are NOT from Kansas (City). You guys make us want to move back!

As far as gas mileage- Once you get past the western half of Wyoming, it's all down hill. Kill the engine, pop it in neutral, sit back and enjoy the ride.

I saw "Twister" once, does that count? (if you get a chance, go sit in the eye of the storm for us)

I would probably take up all your blog space if I listed all the people I know in Kansas!!!! It was a pleasure getting to know you and welcome to the Kansas City area...though I live on the Missouri side of Kansas City! :?)
