Chattanooga is a great area...they have a cool aquarium, fun carousel in the park, great hiking and outdoor activities, and more. And right outside of Chattanooga is a place called Hixson - the soon to be home of the Schelbs!

After much prayers, pleas, and crying out to God, He has heard our request and graciously opened the door to an exciting new opportunity! Andy will be the Middle School Pastor (his DREAM position) at Dallas Bay Baptist Church in Hixson, TN. We could not be happier!!!! We'll move just a couple days after Christmas and be up there the first week in January. Can you believe it? How blessed are we??? We get to invest in 6-8th grade kids!!! And it also looks like I can focus solely on my cookie business when we move instead of me splitting that time with working full-time. Whoo-hoo!!! God is oh so faithful!

God's timing is impeccable. It's magnificent really. I can't begin to clearly express how awestruck we are at God's amazing-ness. His mercy, grace, strength, guidance and unfailing love astound me daily - and all the more through this journey.

Without going into tons of unnecessary details, 4 years ago (right before Andy and I got married) we interviewed for this same position at the same church. They called us and told us that since they had just built a new building they felt it was better to pay off their debt than hire at that time. Fast forward through 4 years of emotional and spiritual growing pains for us, changes at DBBC, etc and Andy "happened" to see this job posting online. He recognized the church, began the interview process, and was interviewed by the same sweet man who interviewed us the last time! God alone knew when they interviewed us 4 years ago that the groundwork was being laid for us to be hired in November of 2012. I'm telling ya'll - God is far greater than we can comprehend. We give Him ALL the glory in this!!

Please pray for us and our family as we move. Andy's entire family - grandparents, great grandmother (so Reed's Great's and Great-Great), brother, parents, aunts, uncles, cousins - are all here in Tampa so it's a big deal for us to be moving ourselves and Reed so far away. The good news is that it's a straight drive up I-75 and a mere 9 hours ;) Pray for peace for Andy's parents as we move Reed away from them - as the first grandchild this is a pretty big deal for them. Pray that we'll find just the right place to live. Pray that our new students would be ready and eager for us when we come. And please please pray for our current students as they'll be without a pastor for a while...it's tough to experience people being moved out of your life, but we know and trust that God has amazing things in store for these kids. We treasure your prayers in this super exciting time!
