It’s a Girl!
We are expecting our second and found out on December 5 that we have a little baby girl on the way. We have nicknamed her “Baby B” and are so excited. She is due on April 23.
Weston loves babies. He quickly points them out and runs to them anywhere we go, so we’re sure he’ll make a great big brother. Thank you for praying for our family as we travel. During these winter months, we’ve been making stops at local libraries to give him (and us) a little break during long trips. He loves reading books about fire trucks, farm animals, and tractors. Many libraries have a great assortment of toys too!
We have had nine new churches begin supporting our ministry since our last prayer letter in September. Our current support level is 91%. We know of a few potential new supporters and are trusting the Lord for additional supporters as churches begin their new year. We are on track to be fully supported in Spring of 2020.
Trip to Ecuador
We will be traveling to Ecuador for a short trip from January 2 through 16. Pray for wisdom as we prepare for our permanent arrival.
