Dear Church Family in Exeter,
First of all, thank you so much for inviting us to join you! We came for a short visit in May and felt completely welcomed by so many of you. Now we are thrilled to be able to come and join you as a part of your family at Church of God of Exeter.
My wife, Marcella, and I have both been sensing that a life-change has been coming for us. We began praying and asking the Lord to show us what that meant and if this was truly from Him. He is so faithful and began speaking clearly to both of us! When we found out about the opportunity to join your family in Exeter, we both felt an instant peace and joy. Again, we took this to the Lord, and through many different ways God has confirmed that Exeter is indeed where He is calling us. We have spent a lot of time lately dreaming of what our future with you will look like. We can't wait to 'become God's family for the sake of revival' with you, to be a part of your lives, and get to know all of you.
At the end of October we are expecting a little one. We know this is a big change, and again, God has given us such peace and such an excitement about sharing that time of our lives with you.
Young revivalists in the Underground, thank you for welcoming us into your lives. Junior High and High School are some very memorable and fun years. We are excited to share those times with you and get to know you all. We want to be a safe place for you, and want to encourage you to discover all that God has for you. We know this will come as we laugh together, make memories together, hang out together, and simply do life together.
It is a privilege and honor for us that you are welcoming us into your family of families, and we are very excited to get to know you and see what God has in store!
Looking forward to seeing you soon!
Ben and Marcella
