May 20 2019
This is a week of celebration for our family.
Isaac day was Wednesday. It’s hard to believe he is now ONE!! We celebrated the gift of our seventh grandchild all the while reliving that very rollercoaster week last year after his birth when God miraculously healed his tiny body and gave him back to us. We are blessed at the memory of Gods intervention.
We celebrated the memory of Ruthie and Eddies wedding day. A sweet day that honored God and their resulting marriage that God blessed with our precious boyIsaac, our “Ducky”. Our son in love Eddie, now a deputy Sheriff , is choosing to serve and protect their community. We are honored and proud of the gift God gave us in their lives. Truly there is no greater joy than our children walking in Truth.
We celebrated the gift of my daddy’s life on Saturday as he began his 86th year. We are so honored to have a godly example to follow. His love for God and sacrifices for our family are gifts beyond measure. His coming to live with us IN PNG is the greatest gift God has ever given US.
We are so blessed. God’s amazing gifts are truly overwhelming our hearts.
As we prayed last week, God turned the hearts of the lawyers of the estate in California towards our ministries. Not only did they approve our ministries as “acceptable charities” but they worked very quickly along with the accountants to actually draft the checks so that we could get the funds sooner to utilize them in filling a 40 foot container with needed supplies before we leave for png in a few weeks. The check should arrive Monday , on Lori’s Birthday. How cool is that ??!
The greatest gift, however, is the gift we have been commissioned by God to share. The gift of the Gospel. We are not ashamed of the Gospel as truly IT is the power of God unto salvation!
Thanks for praying with us. Your partnership is truly a gift
