Well its been about 2+ years since our last update on our NTM Blog. This has been for a number of reasons but we would like to try and get back into updates on this blog site. As we update we would ask that you subscribe to our blogs so you can be sure to get the update and feel free to pass on the info to friends and family..
We value you all so much and even though we haven’t been blogging about our lives, it doesn’t mean we have forgotten about you all or are not thankful. We daily thank the Lord for providing such a strong support team we have back in the states. With the stress of living in a jungle, learning a unwritten language and taking care of medical its truly a blessing to not have to worry about finances and that is because of YOU and of course God’s grace..
As for a very brief update….we have been living in the Dem for about 8 months now. We love it! Thats not to say there are difficulties and frustrations but we truly feel that this is exactly where the Lord has us and it feels great. I (J) have been pluggin away at language. Trying to learn an unwritten, never before studied language is challenging to say the least but it is exciting when I learn to say something new or understand something someone says. This is going to be a very LONG process so we ask for your prayers for perseverance and God’s grace to continue learning.
We also are expecting baby #3 in August. We are going to be heading back to the states May 7th for about 5-6 months to have the baby and then head back to the tribe as fast as possible. Though this baby is/was somewhat of a surprise, it wasn’t for God and we are thankful for this new blessing. Well, thats good for now. We will be making much more of an effort to keep this updated every month or so. Thank you for your faithful prayers and support and having a part of seeing the Dem tribe reached with the Gospel.
