This spring as we met with our director for the Mid-Atlantic region, it became clear that, for a variety of reasons, the timing isnâ€™t right for us to return to the Washington, DC team. Itâ€™s not impossible for the future, but not likely in next few years.
This is something that is sad for us as DC had begun to feel like home
Itâ€™s been an emotional time for us, but we trust the Lord and expect a clear leading from Him. Please pray for this exciting new chapter! We have narrowed down the options to a few which we are sorting and praying through. When we know what is next, we will let you know as soon as possible.
Here is what we do know:
- We want to go where God is leading and where we can most effectively help with the Great Commission.
- We still feel called to work with Campus Crusade for Christ.
- We love Washington, DC and our hearts are set on returning in the future; meanwhile we hope to live in or near a major metro area.
- Weâ€™ll be bringing another (little) Whelpley along with us.
