FI is graduating with a Biblical Studies and Youth Ministries degree in December, I graduate in May, wedding is in June. One of his friends, who is a Youth Pastor in California, met a pastor at a conference who is looking for a Youth Pastor from our school. So, friend called FI and FI told friend to give the pastor his contact info. The church is in Marysville, Kansas, which, according to my Google abilities, is in Marshall County in Northeast Kansas. Does anyone know anything about this area? (I know I could go to the Kansas board, but I thought I'd ask here first)
Prayer Requests- While I KNOW that I want nothing more than for us to be where God wants us, I don't handle change very well. I never have...and I know it's something I need to work on. In the few hours that we've known about this I've thought of these issues:
1)My family...and how to tell them if this happens. My dad has told both of us that he wants us to go where we're supposed to be. My mom has her Bible Study group in direct prayer for us to be no more than 4 hours from home...my aunt is on my mom's side, and most of my family assumes we're staying in Virginia. I've been thinking more about ways to get there and THEN tell her where we've moved to than actually sitting down and talking to her about it.
2) I've never been more than 2 hours from home for more than a week. 17 hours away is mind boggling to me right now.
3) (And admittedly the whiniest)- If FI goes to Kansas, we'll be 17 hours apart for 6 months before the wedding. My roommate's husband has been in Iraq since November, so I know it could be 1,000x worse/more stressful/heart wrenching, but thinking about it makes my heart hurt.
