I sit here on the couch staring at empty walls and boxes packed full of our belongings. The movers will arrive tomorrow morning around 8:00. It doesn’t seem real that we are leaving our life here in the dorms. This apartment was our first home as a married couple. It has been host to tears and joy, celebrations and sorrow, arguments and laughter, growing together, making new friends, welcoming students, and mainly as a place of ministry.
We are sad to leave or cinderblock walls but mainly more sad to say “goodbye” to our close friends, Trinity community and a life as RDs. We will miss game nights, cookie nights, open doors, late night conversations, and living alongside some wonderful college students.
Truly, we are leaving Trinity different people. We have been blessed to live and serve in a community that has challenged our thoughts, spiritual lives and has forced us to create a new worldview. For that, we are forever thankful.
Tomorrow we will say goodbye to a place that has become our home and we love dearly [and celebrate 3 years of marriage]. Tomorrow we will also move into a new phase of life that we know, without a doubt, the Lord has planned for us.
Your prayers for us are appreciated! For now…I am going to leave you with some pictures of our first home as Mr. and Mrs. Bohle.
