Then intent of this blog for me was to write about the coming adventure of my life. It grows nearer and nearer every day. Its crazy to me that in eight short days I will be moving and not only that but driving from Redding California to Homer Alaska to start the next season of my life.
When I visited Homer 2 years ago I was amazed at its beauty and I knew that God wanted me to spend more time there. I had no idea how that would or when it would happen but it did and it has. I ended up interning this year with a pastor originally from Homer who I had no idea existed when I first visited.
I am now going to be living in a house of some of the leaders of a small church there and helping out and serving wherever I can. I will be working wherever i can find a job and possibly fishing if a door is opened for that to happen. I will be spending a minimum of a year there in order to get the whole experience and if I love it I’ll end up probably staying longer.
I continuity feel the call into he unknown and to push my place of comfort and see what not only my body can do but what God can use me for. I recently started a relationship with an incredible women of God and I am honored and blessed to even know her. She will not be moving with me and so this will create some potential challenges that I am honestly excited for. The opportunity and ability to grow ones relationship with another 3000 miles away is not an easy task so I have heard but I am up for it and want to give everything I have at growing my relationship and friendship with her.
I look at everything from a positive point of view realizing everything is an opportunity for growth in all areas of life. I’m looking forward to experiencing and getting to know some of Alaskas wilderness and people. Learning what it is like in a real winter and becoming more connected to not only myself but people, the earth and my God are a couple of my goals for the journey.
I hope I will get to do some backpacking and climbing while there and if I’m lucky some ice climbing in the winter. I can’t wait to see what god has for me there and what challenges will arise along the way.
If you are reading this please keep me in your prayers and don’t be afraid to write me or send me stuff. I will be leaving redding on May 16th 2013 in my Toyota truck.
