Since October 2010, the majority of our life has been overseas. Dustin and I went on the World Race for 11 months, were interns for six months at G42, then found our home here in Mijas, Spain, where we have spent the last four working and teaching with G42 Leadership Academy. In the past six years, we have met so many incredible people, seen some beautiful countries, had an amazing baby girl, and made memories that will last a lifetime.
Now, we are ready to make some new memories…back in good ol’ Texas! That’s right, we are moving back to the Lone Star State at the end of the summer. I (Traci) finished my English teaching commitment in May, and Dustin is currently transitioning out of his Director of Operations position with G42. If everything runs smoothly, we plan on being back on American soil by mid-August. Yeehaw!!!!!
Our future plans are simple at the moment. We want to come back to the States and reconnect with family, friends, and long time supporters who have continued to pour into us these past few years. We want to share stories and catch up face-to-face, and we want London to meet her family. After that, we are planning to settle down in the Dallas area, but you never know 😉 ! With all of that, we will absolutely continue to be a part of the growth and development of G42 and the message it carries in whatever way that we are able.
It’s a little daunting not to have the next step completely planned out. However, if we have learned anything, it has been that God is faithful, and as long as we are willing to listen and serve Him, He will direct us in His will for our lives. We know this is the right move for us, so we are trusting God and His plans for us.
We are headed into a bittersweet transition, so we would appreciate your prayers and love over the next few weeks. Mijas has been our home for over four years, and we are going to miss the people, the culture, and the ministry a great deal. We have been incredibly blessed by those who we have worked beside and lived life with here, and we will miss them immensely.
At the same time as we say goodbye, we say hello to something new. We are overjoyed to get back to Texas. We have friends and family we are excited to live life with, and we are looking forward to our new adventure in a familiar place as a family of three.
So that is our big news! Thank you to everyone who has prayed with and for us, fought for us, believed in us, and surrounded us in love and support. God has blessed us in so many ways, and we are excited to continue to serve Him wherever we go from here. We love you all!
