Counting the days!

It's hard to believe the time has come to start packing!! May is almost here! 
We are overwhelmed with all the love and support we have received from our friends and church family. Justin & the team leave for Sierra Leone in just 9 days! 
Please be in prayer for his team and for our 'little' family as we prepare to leave. We have been crazy blessed with support and donations! Many friends have offered supplies and items for our trip. Up to date we have been gifted about 75% of our needed funds for while we are on the ground. If you wanted to give and haven't been able to yet- there is still a need and we are still collecting funds, you can give either through our church or you can send your gift through our blog. Our tab "help us go" explains.
Thank you for your generosity! 
We are so blessed! 
You can follow the happenings & adventures of our trip here on this blog and on Facebook. Hopefully we will be able to post stories & pictures often! 
We are counting the days!! 
God is Good!

Baptized! Zeke & Gideon!

Amazing times in the life of our family! This weekend we celebrated with Zeke & Gideon as they were Baptized. How incredible it is to see your children come to know The Lord, and choose to follow and serve Him!
Zeke and Gideon's personalities couldn't be more different. 
Zeke is quiet - Gideon is loud!
Zeke is private -Gideon is bold!
Zeke is thoughtful -
Gideon jumps in with both feet! 
They are both hard working, kind and compassionate. 
God has a mighty plan for them!
We are so thankful The Lord blessed us with these two awesome boys!
Praying for our sons as The Lord continues to develop and grow them into men after His own heart. We are overwhelmed with gratitude. God is so good!
