Mother of Six?

 Christmas 09

As of March 1st, I will officially be mother of six!  No, I’m not pregnant with quadruplets, but we do have the joy of dorming my three nephews and niece as their parents move into a new ministry in a remote tribal location. 

We are inspired by this family and their collective desire to sacrifice for the sake of the Gospel, part of which requires them to be separated for much of the school year. 

We are also glad that we are here to do all we can to help them through this difficult adjustment.  We would really appreciate your prayers for them and for us as we head into this new reality!  They need God’s grace and strength as they say the very difficult goodbyes and adjust to their new homes!  We need wisdom to be sensitive to the needs of our new “kids” as they go through this transition.  

I have great hopes that this will be a special season for my nephews and niece, full of good memories of their time with us.  More than that though, I pray that many people will come to know the grace found in Christ our Savior because we all have willingly given our lives, preferences and comfort for His glory!

Thanks for YOUR kinds words and prayers for our family. We too will be praying for you as you take on this new, "fun", challenge! God bless.

What a huge sacrifice for their parents to make, and having such a loving mom like you care for them is allowing them to serve!

I always dreamed of a house full of laughter and noise and it sounds like you will have that privilege!
