June 8th marked Abigail’s 7th birthday! She’s already in a hurry to grow up and be 8. :) Slow down dear, I still can’t believe you’re 7! Abbie has taught us so much over the years. It’s funny, but as you teach and correct your children, the Lord often uses that time to show you your own shortcomings. As I teach Abbie to be patient, the Lord reminds me of times I was impatient. As I tell her to use words of kindness I’m reminded of my own words that I would rather forget.  And I know God our Father did that on purpose!  To mold us and make us better children of God! Parenting has been a wonderful learning experience and we’re so thankful for our little girl.

  I want to thank everyone who wished me a happy birthday! I had a great day with my little clan and church family. After our Hearts Day Banquet, the youth group surprised me with a donut cake! In previous years, they’ve come to my house at 3:00 a.m. and sang happy birthday to me. Given a choice between the two…I’ll take the cake! :) After all our travels, it is so good to be home in the Philippines.

Our son, Micah, turned five on January 20th!  As we look at pictures from the previous year we’re amazed by how much he has grown. His baby chub is gone and he has grown almost as tall as Abigail. Watching your kids grow is a constant reminder of how fast time flies by. It makes you want to hold them a little closer and pray you do your best to raise them right!  The other day Micah looked at me and says, “Mom, I don’t want to get married.” Shocked that his little mind is already thinking about marriage I asked, “Why not?” He said, “Because I don’t have any money in my piggy bank. You need lots of money in your piggy bank to get married.” Wise thinking son! :) This season of life is so short! I’m thankful for these moments that remind me to make the most of my time with these precious blessings. 

 So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom. Psalm 90:12

On September 28, Elizabeth celebrated another birthday! I am so thankful to be married to this sweet lady. I truly couldn’t do what I do without her. I feel like she has sacrificed so much to be a missionary’s wife but it’s something she has done with a smile.  It was not easy for her to learn another language; it took a lot of work but now she enjoys teaching a kids class in Cebuano and English! I thank the Lord for my wife and her willingness to serve! Happy birthday, sweetheart!
