In Conclusion

2014 was certainly a hallmark year in our lives in so many ways. Overall, I can say that we are ever so thankful to be alive!!! God has been so very gracious to us. Even through the midst of the difficult time surrounding the head-on car accident in the DR, we felt His presence so strongly and simply knew that He was keeping us safe and sound in His protective palm.

Thank you so very much for your prayers and being a part of our lives. We love you very much and are so looking forward to seeing all that 2015 holds. This one thing we know: IT'S GONNA BE GREAT!!!

"Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead" (Phil 3:13).

Happy New Year!

The BIG News of 2014!

We finally did it!!! 2014 was a huge year of transformation in many ways.

The biggest one that afforded us all of these changes was the fact that Bryan retired from the military. Whoo hoo!!! :)

Dominican Republic

Here we are in the back of "Lizzy," Pastor Goodman & Vickie's mission's truck in the DR! We were headed off to a great adventure in a local village. Great times!

Fun w/ Friends!

Wonderful times of fellowship and fun with friends!

Time in the DR

This was one of the times that we treasured in which we were able to spend some time with incredibly precious children. Glory to God!

The Miracles

Wow, this was definitely a defining time in our lives and certainly set us on a unique course. We're recovering supernaturally well, praise the Lord! Hey, God gave me an extra spleen!!! :D
