I have so many things to share with you! What a year 2013 was for our family!
I apologize, haven't been faithful to blogging this year, but it has been a wonderful one!
Here is a ultra fast 2013 catch up!
In February we were blessed with the birth of our 5th child, Jedidiah John. He is such a gift!
Both my husband & I we able to travel to Sierra Leone last year! His trip was in June and I was able to go in November.
My heart is full of stories and honestly don't know how to begin. So, we will start with what is happening with us now & I will slowly try to catch you up on stories from last year.
We have some exciting, very exciting news!!
Our big 'little' family is looking forward to 2014 and what The Lord has planned for us!
Our family (all 7 of us!) will be spending most of May & June in Sierra Leone.
We will be partnering with missionary friends who live there, focusing on our Church's partnership goals, working with orphans, widows & street children. Justin will be doing construction work at the school for special needs children & Margaret's Orphan home, where we have spent most of our time serving during past trips.
We don't know what the future holds but we are trusting The Lord and moving forward on this journey one step at a time. Whatever The Lord has for us, we are saying Yes!!! Our family is taking this leap of faith into the arms of our Mighty God, following in obedience believing this is the next step for us in missions.
We want to thank all of you for the amazing amount of support you have already given us and ask that you please continue to pray with and for us! Sierra Leone is not going to be an easy place to get to or live with our unique family age and dynamic; and it is going to take a great big pile of miracles to make this happen but we are praying & trusting! We are so excited for this adventure and all of it's unknowns that can only be accomplished by our Mighty Creator and very thankful to be a part of it.
We will be transitioning this blog into 'our family' blog, where you will be able to read thoughts and happenings from all of us. Hopefully I will have those updates done soon!
Our family on mission, what an amazing adventure! Both Justin & I and the children are very excited about this opportunity and the kids will have things to share as well!
Here we go!!!!!!
