Our oldest daughter, Rachel, has moved to Chicago. After she graduated from University of FL she served in New Zealand for 2 years with the Navigators, a ministry that reaches college students. She has now gone to Chicago to enter into nursing school.
Her time in New Zealand was marked with the realization that God had answered her prayers for girls eager to learn and for a Bible study that meets regularly. Praise God for His provision through the Bible study she led! From coming to a country where she knew no one to gaining some of her dearest friends, she is overwhelmed by His goodness and her love for the girls she discipled!
Chicago marks the next step God has on her path to serve him. She has always had a strong interest in the healthcare field and this step allows her to realize that desire. She also maintains her passion for helping others to understand and know God, so she plans to combine nursing and missions in the future.
While we are saddened to have her leave our home yet again, we rejoice that she will be in the same city as our next oldest daughter, Jessica.
