After months of chasing down the required documents, our visas have finally arrived in the mail! We are now free to leave for Spain and will be flying out on Thursday, March 18. While we are celebrating this wonderful news, our minds are swimming with all we have to do before we leave!
These next few weeks will be a blur as we finish packing and saying our goodbyes. Reality will set in as we step foot in our new city, Madrid, Spain. Initially we will be staying with our colleagues and friends Alejandro and Carmen de Francisco as we begin looking for our new home.
From residency cards to new bank accounts and phone service, we will jump into setting up our home base in Madrid. We are looking forward to exploring our new city and getting settled in as we begin a new chapter of life and ministry.
In their latest newsletter, regional coordinators Patrick and Jamie Nachtigall shared about their upcoming transition. Beginning in June, they will be stepping out of their position as we transition into their role. You can read more about their transition here.
As we step into the role of regional coordinators for Europe and the Middle East in the coming months, we will share more details. We can say our focus will be the same – walking alongside Church of God leaders and congregations as they minister in their communities throughout the region.
Will you pray with us during these next few weeks and months as we settle into both a new role and a new country? We sincerely appreciate your encouragement and prayers!
Nate, Stacy, and Family
