4 Years in Louisville… What’s Next?

Today is a big day.

First, today marks the day four years ago that we packed up our little family in Pittsburgh, PA, said goodbye to a beautiful church family and moved to Louisville to start Destiny Church.

That move was huge. That move was all in faith. We moved, hoping we actually heard Jesus correct when He was calling us to begin a new church.

We didn’t have the special church planter training. Sure, I had read a few books, but all in all, we had no idea what we were doing. Some said we shouldn’t do it, others were pushing us so hard to do it that they seemed relieved when we finally said “yes”.

I suppose we’re that kind of people. Jesus speaks and by grace, we obey.

We love what the LORD has done in and through Destiny Church and we look forward to the many years to come of serving this body and this city.

However, our story doesn’t end there.

Jesus spoke something else for our little family to do about a year and a half ago. Something we never, EVER thought was written down in the chapters of our lives (we thought that about church planting too, but the Father had other plans).

He told us to adopt.

And we did.

The journey was rough… in fact, the hardest thing I’d ever ever experienced in my life, but one of the most rewarding things. We ended up adopting a baby boy and we, along with his birth mom, named him Enoch. He has brought so much joy and life to our home. We would not be the Davis family without him.

But the adoption journey isn’t over.

We’ve begun the process to adopt again!

If you want to follow along with us as we open our home to another child (or children), please visit http://theDavisAdoption.com. We will be raising funds again, as well as keeping that site updated on where we’re at in the process.

These last 4 years have been amazing. They have been hard. They have been joyful. Ultimately they’ve been God-orchestrated so perfectly. I wouldn’t trade them for the world.

Thank you to everyone who has supported us both prayerfully and financially as we’ve followed Jesus the best we know how.

P.S. Today is also special, in a way, because I’m transitioning jobs. It was my last day at Media Marketers, of where I’ve been for about 3 years. Come Monday, I start at Jefferson National.
