Recent Prayers

Recently, I've been thanking God...
  • for my new niece Alethea
  • for my parents' adoption of Luke, after many years of trying!
  • for all I'm learning by home-schooling my children
  • for 13 years of marriage
  • for friends and family I got to see in California, Illinois, Michigan and Wisconsin in November and December
  • for a new mini-van, which feels so luxurious, but will hopefully last quite a while and be big enough to fit all the kids even as they become teens
I've also been praying...
  • for the Syrian refugees, living in tents through one of the coldest and wettest winters in the Middle East in 20+ years
  • for my parents' next step, as they prepare to leave SIM and Nigeria, and look for work in the U.S.
  • for friends and family who are struggling with illness and death
  • for the patience and diligence to develop new friendships
  • for wisdom in knowing what God really wants of me right now
  • for the provision of a new home, at just the right time, so that Ethan can get the speech therapy he needs through a different school district

I'm so excited that you have a nice, spacious, and reliable vehicle now - definitely something to be thankful for! Naomi sounded pretty excited about it when she told Isabella about it in her letter. :-)
