Help Us Move?

Wow, the big move is upon us. It is finally time to collect all our things from before we moved to Ghana. We stored or lent almost everything we own back in December of 2016. We haven’t seen most of it ever since!

Now we are moving to Jacksonville, Florida and it is time to gather everything up and make the move.

You are invited to help if you have time and are close to one of the key locations. There is no way we can pull this off by ourselves!

Here is the plan:

Saturday 8/3: pack house in PASADENA (Help is welcome!)

Sunday 8/4: load moving pod (sounds fun, right? Come on by! >

Monday 8/5: clean Pasadena house

Tuesday 8/6: drive to Davis

Wednesday 8/7: BIG MOVE DAY: collect everything from houses and long term storage and load into moving pod. NEED MOST HELP HERE

Thursday 8/8: finish in the morning of not done

Wednesday 8/14: fly to Jacksonville from Sacramento

Need help with airport drop off (SMF from West Sacramento) and pickup at JAX)

Need help with handing over cars to shipping company

Friday 8/16 or Saturday 8/17: Move into temporary apartment in St. John, Florida.

Need help unloading moving pod

September 5th or 6th (ish): move into house. NEED LOTS OF HELP!

Prayer request: Two nights ago, Joy burned her right hand and wrist from a cooking mishap. 2nd degree. We went to urgent care and we are sure she will be ok, but it is really uncomfortable for her and extremely unfortunate timing (night before we rally start packing)!! Please pray for her healing and comfort.

An evening stroll around Pasadena City Hall. We will miss this.

  1. Bill Krause is spearheading the recruiting effort on this end with a notice sent mid-week. Unfortunately, we’ll be up at Tahoe starting this Monday. But I told him to be sure to let me know if your short-handed for any reason. Praying for a joyful and smooth moving experience – and for Joy’s burn wounds to heal well.

  2. Praying for Joy’s speedy recovery and all that needs to happen on the California end of your trip. I am certain your MPC family will be ready to help in any way we can on the Florida end of your journey! Just say when and where and I will be there… Praying for sweet farewells as you relocate. Zan

  3. Wow, what a challenge, especially with Joy’s injury! I would love to coordinate some meals from our MPC Meal Ministry for your first week or two here if you’ll let me know when and where to deliver them. Email or text me at 904-233-8901 if you know those details so I can start organizing our team. Praying for safe travels and a speedy recovery for Joy!

  4. Really looking forward to having you join us. I met you while in Jax (you sat next to me in the back of the sanctuary). Will help out as much as possible with your getting settled.
