I've been in Cheyenne for six weeks now. It's hard to believe it's already been that long - it feels like just last week I said goodbye to Boise friends and colleagues. And yet, I also can't believe it's only been six weeks. How quickly I seem to have adapted to this new location, life, and position.
I love it here! I love the friendliness of the people and how easy it is to get involved in the community. I've been accepted into the Leadership Cheyenne program, to start in the fall, and I'm also looking at joining a community choir. I'm trying to be careful though - I know this position has the potential to require extra time (although I'm trying to keep to 45 or so hours per week), and in the fall I'll start my PhD program again. I don't want to over-commit, but I want to do it all!
We've survived a couple of hailstorms and some odd weather, but that we can handle. Josh is here for another two weeks before he travels back to Boise to prepare for his mission trip to Cambodia. He'll return to Cheyenne in late August and settle in for the winter.
We are enjoying the new adventure, and pray daily that God's will is clear as we step in faith. This relocation has been full of tremendous blessings, and I am excited for the journey!
