Apple picking, unpacking, beauty of fall in New England, fresh apple cider, visits with family nearby, crisp mornings, apple cider donuts, canoeing, apple pie, sharing at churches, setting up our baby girl’s crib, connecting with our home church, doctor’s visits and being thankful for the home God has provided for us here in MA, are just some of the things we have enjoyed since we moved here a month ago. Thank you all for your prayers as we traveled, especially while Beth was 32 weeks pregnant. Now she is over 36 weeks pregnant and all is well! The baby is moving around every day and ready to enter the world!
We continue to be amazed and so thankful for a Father who takes such good care of us and knows our every need for rest, emotionally and physically, as well as financially as we settle down and get ready for an addition to our family. We enjoyed our time in Nova Scotia connecting with so many people, churches, family and friends! But it was very busy and now we are ready to stay put and enjoy the expansion of our family! Even the home that God picked out for us is a direct result of His care, knowing our every need and loving us so much…giving us the ability to relax and continue to soak up what He is teaching us!
After the news that Beth is already 2 cm dilated a few days ago, we decided to stay close to home and get ready for our baby girl’s arrival. We go to the doctor once a week now and anticipate a sooner than expected arrival of our girl. Appreciate your prayers!
Thank you all for praying for us as we 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 or if you would like us to share in your church, small group or Sunday school class. (After our baby is born! 🙂 ) We will be in MA until the end of January!
