God’s Future Plans for the Sheets

I read this short letter to our church family this morning:

Church family at Our Savior’s Wesleyan:

Just a month ago God organized a conversation to take place that would ignite an understanding that His plan for the life of Stevan, Jessica, and Ella would soon be changing. We had not anticipated any possible change from doing ministry at Our Savior’s Wesleyan Church a mere year and three months ago when we first arrived to begin being used by God here in Mukwonago. We were prepared and ready for a long-term relationship with this church family and ready to face the tasks that were laid before us.

We have confirmed and been affirmed in our decision to follow God’s leading to move to a new community, a new home, and a new season of ministry in Western Pennsylvania – to be used by God and follow His direction for our lives. This decision brings sorrow, nervousness, and excitement to the lives of the three Sheets living just across the parking lot. We have made commitments to “finish strong” in all areas of involvement here believing that God truly has great-things in store in the life of this body at Our Savior’s Wesleyan long after we’ve transitioned away at the close of September.

We join you in prayer for the future ministry of Our Savior’s Wesleyan believing that God not only has a plan for the Sheets family, but also for the body here in Mukwonago. We ask, too, that you continue to love and support us through prayer and conversation as we make this transition a reality for our young family.

With a humble heart – full of gratitude for all that God has allowed us to accomplish and be a part of here at Our Savior’s Wesleyan.

Stevan, Jessica, and Ella Sheets

We have accepted the youth pastor position at Armbrust Wesleyan Church in Western PA. We will be moving in early-October. Please be praying for us, the transition, and for all those involved! We know this is God’s leading and we are excited to be pursuing His will for our lives!
