Wherever you are...

So, we are going to stay here in the US to have our fourth baby. (Who is a boy named Elijah in case you didn't see our newsletter) Some people have asked if I am disappointed and, to be honest, part of me is. I want to get back to Africa. But as I have been learning, part of trusting, is knowing that God knows better than me. 

In the meantime, what are we doing? Fundraising. We have almost 55% of our monthly pledges and 25% of our cash need. We have loved the churches we have been with recently and are looking for more churches to connect with. Either new churches, or churches we have been connected to already. We are also always looking for small groups to share what God is doing. Email us if you have a group who we could share with!

And then there is normal life. Homeschooling preschool and kindergarten. Trying to raise little men to know and love Jesus. This is where we are at in life.  Physically, we are in the States for the next few months. 

"Wherever you are, be all there." -Jim Elliot

We are being ALL here as much as we are able. The good news is that there are lots of great things to enjoy while we are here. Like Rita's water ice. Like swimming pools. Like friends and family. So we will focus on what we have and be ALL here, so that when we go back we can be ALL there.
