Opportunity Awaits

An overseas opportunity was placed before our family and we finally and officially said, “Yes”. My husband was asked to move within the company for a three year job assignment in the Netherlands. We didn’t exactly scream”Yes” right away, but after lots of prayers, contemplation, and mid morning coffee we decided this would be an amazing opportunity for our kids and us. If our friends had to tell about this and our initial decision it would go more like this:

“They are moving overseas to Norway! They are not moving to Norway. I think they pulled out and are not moving at all.  Oh wait! They are moving to the Netherlands this summer or is it next summer? They are not moving at all…again. Let’s not ask them anymore. I think they are getting a little discouraged. The house is on the market and they are finally and officially moving to the Netherlands!”

Royce and I were then showered with clarity amongst the doubts and uncertainty. Within moments of the final decision, we were all taking Dutch language and cultural training, putting the house on the market, organizing the move, and enjoying as many backyard barbeques with friends and family. What a journey it has been just in the preparation for a move to another country.

Come join us as we make this leap of faith over the big pond, explore a new cultural, experience a new language, and live life as a family in the Netherlands. We are full aware of the road bumps and waves life presents in this transition for our family, but hope to get back on our bikes in those times of trial and continue along this path where opportunity awaits.
