As of July 8, Jim became the new pastor of Crosspointe Baptist Church in Millington, TN. We are quickly preparing to move Aug. 7. Our first Sunday is August 12.
God has so graciously found us a house and we are praying that our house in Ga will sell very quickly.
This process has been diffcult and exciting. Jim and I have said repeatedly that this has been a very clear decision, but one of the hardest that we have ever had to make. It is hard to leave our family, home state, North Cross, and our friends. I know that God has a plan for us, but it isn’t always easy being obiedent.
The following verses have been great reminders for us through this process:
Isaiah 43:18-19, Isaiah 45:3, Isaiah 55:8, and Jer 29:11-13.
I know that God is faithful and He will be our Comforter, Sustainer, and Rock through this time.
My prayer for the boys:
Jake and Judd
-transition into the new house and church
-that they would have godly playmates and influences
-that they would not be anxious
-that they would love Jesus more as a result of us moving to TN
-that they would be a bold witness for the Lord
-wisdom and discernment
-guidance with decisions that must be made
-God would us Jim to grow His kingdom as a result of us being in TN
This is a new season….this is the time God has chosen! I pray that we will honor Him with our lives.
The Perdues will miss Georgia!
I really enjoyed my 10 year reunion. It was nice to see everyone after so long. Our reunion was really good and classy. The committee did a greta job planning a preparing for the weekend.
Friday night we met at HOCO and had a tour of the school. It was so much bigger now. Several things had changed. I think I was most sad to see that the carpet was gone and that the round tables were missing in the lunchroom. Next, we went to Cheddar’s for a time to hang out and get reaquainted.
Saturday there was a family picnic at Ted Wright park. It was hot, but it was fun to see everyone’s family.
Saturday night was great. We had a semi-formal event at Houston Lake Country Club. I really enjoyed hanging out. I even made my way to the dance floor a couple of times. I think that Jim enjoyed laughing at me. I couldn’t get him to join me, but it was still so much fun. To top off the evening, everyone voted on superlatives..i.e. most changed, least changed, prettiest female, handsome male…etc. I won Most Changed in 10 years. How funny! Jim and I would like to think that the change was Jesus in me, but I know that my physical appearance is very different also. My hair is about 20 inches shorter and I weigh about 40lbs less.
Jim and I had fun and I look forward to 2017!
