A New Addition...

No, sorry to disappoint, but we are not expecting.  I am, however, very excited to announce that Ty and I have adopted a precious little four-year-old boy in Zambia - Michael.  We adopted him through Father's Heart, A Family Legacy Mission, and it was SO easy, and 95% of our money goes straight to Michael.  Incredible, completely incredible.


Recently, Ty and I have really struggled with giving and serving - we both want to give and serve more than we financially and physically can.  For us, adopting Michael fulfills both needs.  Our sponsorship opens up lots of opportunities for Michael - including, daily discipleship and counseling services, regular health assessment and intervention programs, food and other basic necessities, educational assistance and tutoring services, micro-economic development programs for their caretakers... and most importantly, Michael will learn about Jesus Christ and biblical principles that will help him grow and mature.

There are also numerous opportunities for Ty and I to travel to Zambia, do some mission work, AND meet Michael.  This of course will take some saving on our part - but we've already started that process too.  We can't wait to get to Africa!!

Please add us (if we aren't already) and Michael to your daily prayer lists.  Pray that God will use us to impact Michael's life positively.
