Welcome back to the East Coast Hoffer family!
Pete's younger sister Stephanie, her husband Justin and little girl Willow are stopping through for a visit on their way to Ohio. Justin's new Coast Guard post is in Cincinnati- a lot closer than L.A.! We are very glad to get to see their faces as well as Willow's bunny impression.
We have enjoyed a jam-packed month or so here.
I (Kassie) wanted to share a few images with you of the Discipleship course Pete helped lead recently.
Twenty individuals, comprised of Canvas and those interested from our sending church, Highland, gathered around a curriculum that God has been stirring inside of both Pete and our co-planter Todd. The time was centered on living ordinary lives with gospel intentionality. They led us through an experiential process covering topics such as: God’s redemptive plan, the DNA of a Disciple, loving God, loving people, three story evangelism, leading a home community, etc… It was amazing to hear feedback such as, “Wow, I’ve never heard the story of God from beginning to end in one sitting, where we find ourselves and how we can take part in it.” There are other potential opportunities to conduct the class… we will see what unfolds.
p.s. The food above helped sustain us during the two, 4-hour sessions!

Our new place of residence! I'm not gonna lie, there are still a few pieces of furniture on the front porch. We have a lot envisioned for this place, but are stacking and unpacking boxes in the mean time. We are in the Oakley neighborhood on the East side of Asheville, and are really enjoying being closer to the city!
