This spring as we met with our director for the Mid-Atlantic region, it became clear that, for a variety of reasons, the timing isn’t right for us to return to the Washington, DC team. It’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
It’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.
- We’ll be bringing another (little) Whelpley along with us.
