FAQ #2 - Did you make this decision because of Renate's parents?

You surely noticed from Renate’s letter back in January that her parents and their care was a significant factor in the decision. It was not, however, a deciding one. Indeed, we feel they would benefit from Renate’s proximity. The move certainly brings comfort as to a certain amount of concern for them and their welfare. We had felt for some time, though, that our days in the Valley were numbered and our direct involvement in ministry here was not as essential for its continued growth. We had never thought of leaving Brazil physically but God brought this opportunity at a time we felt Him leading us to some sort of change for the next phase of life and ministry.
