“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given…” Isaiah 9:6
These verses have taken on new meaning to us as we anxiously wait for our first born son. With his birth only a few weeks away, we can’t wait to meet him in person. Are you sitting on pins and needles just waiting to share with others the reason for Jesus’ birth? We are looking forward to sending out a birth announcement around Christmas time. Will you be announcing Christ’s birth at Christmas?
It has been so exciting to have three youth from Ecuador attending the AFLC Bible School this fall. What a blessing it is to see youth we helped disciple in the past continue to hunger and thirst for the Lord! As I write, we have two of the youth spending the weekend at our house. It is so much fun to spend time together with them and to practice our Spanish. It makes us anticipate all the more the day we will be leaving for Ecuador.
As we celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas just a month apart, it reminds us we that have so much to be thankful for. We are thankful for your prayers and support. We are thankful for the visits we could have with many of you.
We have traveled over 12,000 miles over the last few months and thank the Lord for His safety. Please continue to keep us in your prayers as we stick closer to home for the next couple months and prepare for our baby’s birth.
