I decided to start a blog to document this new season of life that Brandon and I have just entered into. Brandon and I moved to Portland, Oregon about a month ago. The move went well as we had lots of helpers. We are so grateful to all our family and friends that helped us with the move down from Kirkland, WA. We are settled in to our new apartment in John's Landing. John's Landing is located in SW Portland. We are right across the street from the Willamette River which divides the city of Portland in half (East and West). It's a beautiful location and God provided us with an amazing apartment that is so close to OHSU and downtown. We are very excited to get to explore and live in a new city and be on mission in a new community.
As most of you know, Brandon is attending Oregon Health & Sciences University (OHSU) School of Medicine this Fall. God has truly blessed him with amazing gifts and a desire to serve and help people in need. I'm excited to see what the Lord has in store for him the next 4 years here at OHSU. I pray that God would surround him with fellow classmates that are believers who can support him along the way in his studies.
I continue the search for a nursing job in Portland. I would ideally like to work up at OHSU or Doernbecher (Children's Hospital) as it would be a very short commute to work, but I am open and just believing God to open up the perfect job for me. It will happen in His right timing. Meanwhile, I am enjoying my time off - reading books, organizing projects, cooking/baking, making cards, etc. There is an awesome park across the street from us which I enjoy going to. The weather has been beautiful! It's been fun to go to the park and read a good book in the sunshine!
I am excited to be able to share what the Lord is doing and continues to do in this new season of our lives.
Ps. 106:1 --- "Praise the Lord! Oh give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, for His steadfast love endures forever!"
Stay tuned for more evidences of God's grace...
