The boxes added up quickly as I am sure you can relate too. I haven’t lived here quite 3 years, but of course stuff multiplies. There are movers here loading up a truck which I will meet again Wednesday morning in Stockholm. The transition is here. Please continue to pray for this time. The church sent me off well yesterday with a gift of a signed T-shirt from our Luleå women’s basketball team…which are one of the best in Sweden! It was a complete surprise. The Lord has provided amazing friends, community and experiences as I have had the opportunity to serve here. I am looking forward to seeing how the different groups will continue the work. Please continue to pray for them!
Luleå’s climate will be missed. The darkness was something to get use, but I have loved the snow. Here is a recent early morning of fresh snow falling that turned into a beautiful sunny day where you just want to go sit in the sun. I do not think I would have ventured to this area of the world and I am thankful God brought me here. Northern Scandinavia is a beautiful land! There will be plans to make visits back over the year to keep up with the relationships and encourage the work. I am thankful it is only an hour flight away.
Thank you for your prayers in the transition as I continue to say good-bye as well as the need to start in a new place!

Glad that things are working out and continuing to pray for your move to Stockholm and the ministry their. I know you will be missed in Lulea. May God continue to reveal more of Himself to you and use you for His kingdom. We appreciate your work in the Lord! 1 Cor. 15:58 On Apr 25, 2016 3:10 AM, “Following and Fishing” wrote:

I love seeing you live and that you share the real stuff along the way. You challenge me and sometimes I read w/ a bewildered look & possibly my mouth dropped open. However, I always read admiring your faith and trust walk. Thanks.
So I don’t usually reply w/ prayer requests but will take you up on it today! This week I finish my “main” part-time job (helping w/ Jacob Lane) as I felt led to resign last month (effective the end of April) & don’t know what next will look like. I have decided that I want to go back into children’s ministry (feel that God has confirmed this) but to enter it well (verses kicking & screaming like I did years ago). I enjoyed it (minus the crazy staff issues) and felt that God really used my gifts and talents & since then I’ve been used in parts & pieces but not completely (if that makes sense). Obviously God has to line-up the right thing and He has quite a challenge as it has been many years since I’ve done it – probably looks weird on a resume but thankfully He is much bigger than resume looks & wording!
Thank you & keep us posted!! kimberlee
“This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.” 1 John 4:9-11
