In Transition

We have been in transition for the past few weeks and have had many things happen in that time. Chris left Mountain Range HS the last day of May and had to say good-bye to many close co-workers and students. Leanne left the Denver Rescue Mission in the beginning of June, and also left feeling very supported in our upcoming move, and grateful for the amazing experience of working for DRM. It was surreal for both of us as we both loved our jobs dearly. Since then we also moved out of our condo in downtown Denver (which was kinda sad) and moved into friend's homes (thank you). Leanne also had a great trip to ABQ where she had the chance to share meals, walks, and time at the pool with both family and friends. She even had the chance to go camping with family up in the Jemez Mountains. Currently, Chris has just over a week until he will graduate with his Masters in Education, and Leanne is finishing all the final details of our move (but we do watch A LOT of World Cup soccer). We look forward to the remaining 3 weeks until we move to see our family and friends as much as possible.Our niece Charlie (who was not afraid to get dirty) while camping in New Mexico. We will miss that smile!

Denver Community Church

Denver Community Church is one of our partnering churches for our time in Cambodia. So on Sunday, June 20th they will be having a "sending off" time in all of their services for us. This will be a chance for us to have a few minutes to talk about what we are doing and who Asian Hope is, while also having the chance to hear a testimony from a student of Asian Hope. We hope you can join us on the 20th at Denver Community Church at any of their four services: 8:30am, 10:00am, 11:30am, and 6:00pm.

Moving Day

The day that everyone dreads...moving day. We spent the last weekend packing (thanks Ginger), and moving all our stuff in a U-Haul to our storage unit in Fort Collins (thanks Dennis and Manetta). This is the next big step in getting ourselves ready to leave for Cambodia, and we are happy to have this day behind us. Now that we are out of our home, here is where we will be staying for the next 6 weeks:
  • June 1-5: Kim and Taylor Nelson's in Denver

  • June 6-14: Leanne will be in Albuquerque & Chris will be in Boulder

  • June 15-July 2: Skyler William's in Boulder

  • July 3-11: Fort Collins with Chris' parents
  • July 12: Departure Day!
