We have arrived in Salem, OR

Two weeks ago, we put all of our worldly possessions in this Pod and watched it drive away as we prepared for our move from Hoffman Estates, IL to Salem, OR.

We spent our final weekend in Chicagoland at our church's annual retreat. It was a huge blessing to be with everyone one final time, but saying goodbye was neither easy or fun.
We spent our last night in the area with our dear friends the Hanlons.

Next, we drove to Sioux Falls, SD and connected with our friends from our time serving at IT, John Kathy and Kaitlyn Barcanic.
We spent the next 8 days driving across the country and through various mountain ranges. What a beautiful and vast country we live in! I have shared photos of our journey here (part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4, and part 5)

This is our new home in Salem, OR. If you would like our new address feel free to drop me an e-mail or leave a comment in this post and I will respond.  We want to say thank you for all of your prayers as our family settles in to our new home! We always love visitors so if you make it up to the Pacific NW please drop us a line.
