Let's see....the latest on everyone.....
Creed turned 3 on March 9th. The years really are disappearing! He is a determined fella and the jokester of the family...here is a pic of when he was little and one that is more recent - (christmas)!
Judah turns 5 this next week on april 1st! I have a kindergartner! WHAT?????? He is a dleight. He is so stinkin inquisitive and smart. He challenges me! He has been in pre-school and knows all his letters and sounds, how to write them, he can count past and write up to 100. He knows about 20 shapes (most of which I have no idea the names for!) He has the solar system down and can recite the Pledge of Alligence! Not to mention days of the week, months of the year, the continents and on and on! I am bragging, I know, but really it is only because I cannot believe he knows all this stuff and he is still 4! Here are pictures of how he has changed in the past 5 years too!
I am doing well. I am pregnant with our 3rd baby and feeling tired and a bit nauseas! I am exctied for our new addition and in the meantime, trying to figure out how to fit us into our little 500 Sq. Ft. (or less) Mod. It will be an adventure and a great reason to de-junk our house again. My friend, Elizabeth, is giving me piano lessons and I am enjoying all my friends.....church planting is starting out well and we are doing a lot of prep work for that too!
Jon is doing a great job wearing a million hats! He enjoys his job at APU as a resident director and he is also very energized by the beginnings of the church plant! He is helping a lot at home, getting us organized enough to fit 5 in here and he loves rough housing with our little guys! Legos have been a hit and he just pulled out the little ones from when he was small. The boys play for HOURS.....nice for me. :>)
As far as our church plant details, here are a few! We are planting in Pasadena, CA. We have 20-30 people interested in our core team......we have 4 quality interns, we have several sending churches on board! God has been extremely generous in His provision so far and we are just feeling more passionate about what is in store this year......please pray for people, a building and finances! These are general prayer requests, but they cover A LOT of details! We will try to keep you posted better than we have in the past two years!
