The Ramseys Prepare to Move to Texas
Blog post written by Jenni Ramsey
Our family will be moving to McKinney, Texas, at the beginning of October, where I am thrilled to open a new His Hands His Feet home office, sending short-term teams to serve orphans in Central America. Why McKinney?
My brother and his family moved to McKinney two years ago and they absolutely love it. Last year my mom began seriously considering retiring in Texas. She took the boys to McKinney in the summer of 2014 while I was leading teams to El Salvador and they loved it as well. We began talking about a possible move last fall. On the week that we began to pray about a move to North Dallas, Mike learned that he had a film shoot in the Dallas area with his company. During that trip he connected with an amazing church community in Frisco and built a close friendship with the pastor, Jason Brewer. The following month I was able to visit Mercy Church and share about our work in El Salvador (see blog post below). Over the next few months we were overwhelmed by the contacts and connections that developed in the Dallas area. After talking and praying with many family members, friends and church leaders, we sensed the Lord confirming his call for our family to move to Texas.
Dallas is only a two and a half hour flight to El Salvador. I will continue to lead orphan outreach teams to Central America from both California and Texas. Mike is currently in an interview process with a company in Dallas. We appreciate your prayers for God's timing and provision for our family. The Lord has allowed us to purchase a home just a few miles away from my brother and we are extremely grateful for this opportunity. We appreciate your prayers as we experience many emotions during this season of transition. We know that the Lord has called us to Texas. We're looking forward to the Southern values, small school district, slower pace of living and doing life with family, but we will miss the family, friends and church community that we love so dearly in Southern California.
My brother and his family have enjoyed watching the progress on our new house
and they keep us updated weekly with new photos. This is my niece, Sadie,
checking out the kitchen cabinets. Isn't she adorable?
