Well sorry for the lack of the posting this last week. As you can imagine we are pretty busy these days. Just wanted to update what has been happening and where we are in our journey God is sending us on…

This last Sunday we had a presentation at our church explaining what we are doing and asking for support. I tell you that the support we are receiving is overwhelming! Financially we are getting there and emotionally we can’t wait to get there! We made it in our local newspaper, the Kuna-Melba News. There was a great article about us and we were so blessed to be able to tell our story.

We also finished up Vacation Bible School and the turnout was great. The first day it rained but then the rest of the week was beautiful and we had VBS in the park.

I personally will be heading up to the mountains on Thursday through Saturday for a Men’s Retreat with 15 to 20 other men from our church. I’m excited about getting up there and really talking with God and getting mentally ready for this journey!

9 years ago on June 14, our son Banning entered this world. Banning at 9 years old

Banning Michael has blessed our lives in so many ways. He has a special zest for life and is gifted with a kind heart and plenty of energy.

Banning you have made us laugh, cry & rejoice as we have had the awesome privilege of parenting you & getting to know you & watch you grow into a wonderful boy. Our hearts have big hopes for you son, we pray that you will experience life & God to your fullest potential.

We know you will continue to be a blessing to all that come to know you. May God guide and protect you. May your Daddy & I give you all that you need to soar as high as your dreams want to take you.

We all love you Banning. We believe in you Banning. We thank God for you everyday.

Summer is here & school is out. The past two weeks have been crazy busy but filled with blessings!

We have been in awe at the support & help we have received from both friends & strangers. Wonderful people have generously dedicated their time, energy & resources to help us continue to raise funds for Haiti.

We were blessed with two opportunities of fund raising. We held a huge yard sale at our friends house then the following weekend we had a petting zoo with pony rides. Both events were blessed & awesome to be a part of.

Thank you supporters & friends whom we could not have done these events without you.

Thank you for all of your heartfelt prayers, we appreciate them & need them.

We are grateful for the many words of encouragement, stories, hugs & connections that were made during this time.

It has been wonderful to see our children work so hard and at the same time, enJoying & experiencing life, growing from it and making new connections.

We continue to walk this path of Faith.

Scripture is daily food for the soul…..

When He had called the people to Himself, with His disciples also, He said to them, “Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.

“For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it.

“For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?

“Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?”
Mark 8:34-37
