Final Post From Missouri

Yesterday the movers packed up our house and loaded all our earthly stuff on a truck headed for Lugoff! We're busy saying goodbyes to friends & family in our last few days in Springfield. We probably saved too much for our final week, but I'm sure there'd never be enough time to do all we want to do!
In one of our final acts as residents, we hit downtown Springfield Wednesday night for a family photo shoot with our talented brother-in-law. Annette and I have spent MANY a date night downtown, and this city has been a terrific home to our family the past four years! It was a fun, fitting way to put a bow on our time here.
Now this weekend, we make the move to South Carolina! We know there's no better place to be than where the Lord calls you, and we know we will LOVE our new home town/state/church in every way.
Can't wait to get there & join y'all! See you soon!

Hey Friendship Family! Things are continuing to wind down for the Tates here in Springfield, MO. Our oldest son Isaiah (16) is on a mission trip with his youth group in Trinidad, while we’re here finalizing everything with our house. This Sunday will be our final one at High Street, and I will be preaching. It will be an emotional day for our entire family, for sure! So if you think of us, please pray for us!
This week I thought I would share a few photos of significant, historical spots for us in Springfield. The first photo is Baptist Bible College, which brought both Annette & me to Springfield back in 1995 (from Kansas & Ohio, respectively). We were just kids back then! Photo #2 is South Side Baptist Church, our church during college and the location of our 1999 wedding (aka the original #tate2). The third photo is High Street Baptist Church, the church that brought us back to Springfield all these years later and has been the most like home! Springfield may be the birthplace of Bass Pro Shops, Route 66, Brad Pitt, and cashew chicken, but to us it will always be the birthplace of the #tate6pack and the place our family has grown the most!
Hope y’all have a great week!
