Many thanks to all of you wonderful saints who have hosted us, prayed for us, fasted for us, played with our kids, humored us, listened to us for hours, and blessed us over this furlough season. The Downtown family threw us a lovely shower with delicious food and company then sent us home with dozens and dozens of cards filled with gifts! The Lexington church held a fundraiser for our team, let us lead a class, and listened to us preach on a Sunday. We soaked up your wisdom at restaurants and in homes. Our Kellis family let us crash their home and bought the groceries for two months. Anne made a special trip to nurse Heather through childbirth so that Heather could nurse the baby. She also moved rooms in her own house so that we could have our own family suite. Heather’s Dad took Addie to the Zoo, the children’s museum, and taught her to swim.

As you can see, we have had so many blessings rained on our heads that we cannot even mention or count them all. We just praise our good Father and are full of joy for all that we have received. Thanks to you all, our hearts are refreshed and we are ready to return. Here are some family snapshots of our recent months. Thank you, body of Christ. You are beautiful.
