A lot of you know the latest news, but a lot of you still might not… although, if I know the Church of Christ/Western crew… news travels fast!
The latest adventure that this Roberts family will be embarking upon is a move to the big city of Calgary, Alberta sometime in September. Peter was offered the Youth Minister position at the Calgary CofC, working with Kelly and Robin Carter (and taking that scoundrel, John Close’s position… and possibly house… and cat…)
We have strongly felt God’s direction towards Calgary and of course, our feelings about the move are truly bittersweet. Living in Calgary will allow Peter to finish his bachelor’s degree (because there is a school there) and another bonus will be that we are just that much closer to family. While we look forward to a new chapter in the journey that God has us on, we are very sad to leave the teens, the church and our friends and family here. Let’s not forget about our sweet house that we’ve lived in for only 4 months. We are sad to say goodbye to that too. And the island. Oh the island. It is lovely here, that’s for sure. But we didn’t move here because it’s beautiful (although it was definitely a blessing!) and it isn’t a reason to stay when God says “Go!”.
So please pray for us. I thought life was crazy and stressful before just with wedding season at its peak. Now we are dealing with heavy emotions and house stuff on top of our normal craziness.
When we moved into this house I remember saying “Okay, now I’m not moving again for a long time!”
I think God must’ve laughed.
