Georgia on Our Minds


On June 20th my family & I moved to Georgia. God called us to leave Maryland and move to St. Simons Island, Georgia to serve at The Whitefield School (TWS), which is a small, independent Christian school that serves families of the Golden Isles of GA.

Anyone who has moved knows the challenges of the task. Moving a family of five 700 miles is a new experience for me. God has been faithful in leading us for many months, but we do miss dear friends from home and familiar streets and parks. (We look forward to two different families visiting from MD in the next three weeks.)

On July 1st, I started working at TWS. After getting my office set up and my “stuff” moved in, I’ve been assessing the strengths and weaknesses of the school, developing a plan of action for the coming months, and getting ready for the new school year.

It has been a joy to get to know many individuals who have been faithfully serving the Lord for many years at TWS. Christ described those who serve others as the greatest in his kingdom. These are the types of heroes I have been meeting. I look forward to seeing the many treasures in heaven they will receive as they make a difference for Christ and his kingdom at TWS.

Please pray that we will quickly settle into our new life on St. Simons Island, develop close friendships, and get connected in our new church.
