Work Beyond the 2018-2019 School year
“Two to three years.”
That was our verbal commitment when we decided to pack up six years worth of “life in Texas” and move to the far east. We somehow managed to whittle away all our prized possessions down to what would fit into sixteen large suitcases and twelve carry on bags. Somehow all the bags arrived at the final destination and we still had all four of the kids who boarded the plane with us at the beginning of the flight.
Much as happened since we landed in this country on the “other side of the world.” With twelve to thirteen hours separating us from the western hemisphere, sometimes it has felt like we are on a completely different planet.
As we moved into the second half of our second year in mainland China, Stephen started looking for new locations where God might be calling us. After much prayer and deliberation, we decided that God was calling us to serve him at an international school in Ankara, Turkey for at least two years.
Look for our posts from Turkey starting in August of 2019.
