Easter, family, rain, snow, lobsters, friends, our apartment, ocean, fresh fish and rest are just some of the many blessings God has sent our way since we arrived home in Nova Scotia! And we are very excited to be able to tell ya’ll that we are expecting another child in October! We would appreciate your prayers for the little one and our family as we go through the pregnancy together and welcome our baby into our family!
We have been very encouraged with all that God has been teaching us over the last months as we have been traveling around. And now we are looking forward to more time to process and let things sink in, letting God apply things to our daily lives! So amazing that we have such a faithful God to teach us and work through us without our need to figure out how it all works or how it all will work! 🙂
Thank you all for praying for us as we settle into Nova Scotia life and share what God is doing in the Sepik of Papua New Guinea. Please let us know if you would like us to stop in for a visit while we are home. Or if you would like us to share in your church, small group or Sunday school class.
