An Update on Our Family

The following is an exert from our June 2012 newsletter.  If you'd like to download a copy of entire piece, you can do so here.  You can also add yourself to our mailing list to begin receiving copies of our newsletter in your inbox.

Overall, our family is doing well right now. Of course, Gina and I are tired of always asking for money – and we’re certainly ready to get on with what God has called us to do in this next season of our lives. If you think about it, we’ve been in the process of “leaving” for almost 2 years now, and that’s getting old. At the same time, the slow transition has been good for our family in many ways. Joshua, in particular is doing better than ever. He’s talking about Japan openly and even smiling about it sometimes when he thinks no one will notice (just don’t point it out to him)! Josiah and Garrett remain excited and are anxious to get on with the adventure ahead.

Everyone in the family is sensing that time is growing short, and we’re looking at familiar things with the perspective that we may not see them again for a long time. That was true while I walked home from the Coffee Xchange earlier this week and thought about how Asheboro probably won’t be our home for much longer. That made me sad, but then the Holy Spirit reminded me that Asheboro has never been our home – neither was Lexington. The home that we were made for is still waiting for us. It’s the place our hearts are really longing for – where goodbyes will be over forever, and there won’t be any need for missionaries to leave friends & family to fly to far off places with the Gospel. Thank you for praying for us so faithfully all these months. God is answering your prayers…both the financial ones and the ones that are more personally directed toward our family during this long time of leaving. Thank you!
