California







For some this entry will come as a surprise because the past few months have been busy. Busy with life, school and... a new relationship. In July mutual friends, Lee and Trisha Mitchell, introduced me to a pretty amazing man...Ben Mosier. We started out corresponding through email, he was in Alaska working and I had recently returned from AK back to SC to continue working. Emails led to phone calls, more phone calls led to Skyping, and this past Labor Day weekend I flew out to Los Angeles to meet him in person. Ben is going to seminary full time at Masters in LA, CA. He will be coming out East to spend Thanksgiving with me and extended family in Charlotte, NC. This relationship has been a blessing in my life!

The bigger update, I am finishing my program here at CIU in December and was initially planning on moving back to AK to work again for the school district and seek out ministry oppurtunities. Those plans have shifted some and I will be making a 3,000 road trip with a girlfriend here to LA...coast to coast. I am moving now to LA to live and work and have time near Ben so we can get to know each other better, IN PERSON! Long distance is okay for a time, but there comes a time when you need time near that person. So, for those interested in meeting Ben, he will be in AK with me in December. I know our time will be packed between his family and connections in the Valley and mine, but we'd love to spend time with you!

I will try my best to do better at keeping ya'll updated. My spare time has been on the phone and skype lately. :)

YAY- I have heard about this awesome relationship from your "beaming" parents and I kept checking for updated posts! I am so happy for you, Anita! You deserve this wonderful man of God for all the years of waiting and trusting on God's provision. I hope to meet him in December. Enjoy your time getting to know eachother and how fun to move to CA- sunsets on beaches are great places "to-get-to-know" him even more!!!

Way to go Anita, you just about knocked me off of my chair. Wow. I thought Ben was still at FBF. My in-laws aren't attending there anymore, so I'm out of the loop. My heart is happy for you.

Small world Janeen, I forget how paths cross of people knowing him b/c of his church family and teaching experience in AK.

Thanks for being excited for me ladies! He's a great guy! Can't wait for you to meet him Tosha and Rach!
