Prayer Letter

I sent this letter to the prayer chain at Christ Community Bible Church this week.  Thought I would share it here as well.

We asked for so much prayer in the past few months that I thought it was appropriate to share some answers that God has brought along. Swamp Mennonite Church voted on my position as Minister of Music and Worship / Youth Pastor last Sunday (October 2) and God blessed us with a confirming vote of 98 positive out of 98 votes. It was truly an answer to prayer! (Although there's one man who still insists he voted no :) It seems like every church needs a jokester.)
And then, this past week we signed a lease on the 24th apartment that I looked into (I didn't drag Dana along for all 24 of them). We have our keys and our lease officially starts tomorrow (October 12) which is exactly one month before our wedding! We will be living at 15 S. Main St Quakertown, PA 18951. I will move in in the next few weeks and then Dana will join me after our honeymoon.
We are definitely experiencing a mix of emotions right now. We're excited, happy, scared, tired, thankful, and many other things.
Thank you for all of your prayers and your loving support. You are a great church family and we miss you already. Sunday mornings are still especially difficult as there are reminders all around of what we are leaving behind, so you can continue to pray that in those moments we would look to Christ and remember all that He left behind in coming to us. Pray that we would humble ourselves and be willing to serve those around us, and also that we would be able to quickly build solid relationships that provide us the love and support in this branch of the family of God.

Sorry, this got long, but a lot has happened in the past month.
In Christ,
Nathan (and Dana)
