Dashing Through the Snow…

Well…the kids got all the snow they prayed for! Plus some! :) The house we’re staying at got over 3 feet of snow. When it started to come down Abigail said, “It looks like a snow globe!”  It has been so fun to see the States through the eyes of our children. As the snow piled up, all I could think about was shoveling but for our kids, it was all a new adventure.  Just please keep us in prayer as we travel in this weather!

It’s official! Micah is a dual citizen! Yay! We want to thank everyone who prayed as we processed his paperwork. He also has his American passport now, so he is ready to become a world traveler!  Sometimes I forget that he has never been to the USA because he was born here in Cebu!  He is going to love meeting our families and friends….and seeing snow for the first time!  Thanks again to all those who prayed!

OuMicahr Micah turned 2 on January 20th! As we look at pictures from these last two yers, we just feel amazed that our baby is now a little man. He loves basketball and tries to swipe all the stray balls when the teens play at church!  As I watch him grow I am overwhelmed by a sense of responsibility. This sweet, carefree toddler needs to be taught and loved. I love the verse in Proverbs, Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.Raising children is a lot of work, but the rewards from teaching and loving on them is immense! I pray that he grows loving God and loving people.

Our baby boy, Micah Christopher Baran, was finally born!  He came into the world early Sunday morning on January 20, 2013.  This birth story provided a little extra excitement for us as January 20th marked a special holiday in the Philippines.  The roads around the hospiMicah Christophertal are shut down to make way for the parades and festivities that go on throughout the day.  Because of this an ambulance took us to our hospital and not a moment too soon, just two hours later our little man was born!  Weighing in at 7lbs. and 10 oz., Micah was very healthy and just one day past his due date . Our thanks go out to everyone who prayed and sent well wishes!  We thank the Lord for this second gift, our little man!
