Sunday Morning Overheards

Overheard #1

Mother of Preschooler to Preschool Teacher: "My son has been talking about Jesus all week and he has never done that before. H is learning so much here. Thank you for what you guys are doing."

Overheard #2

Mother of 6 year old to Children's Volunteer: "I lost my debit card this week and my son says, "Mom let's pray and ask Jesus to help you find your card." Isn't amazing how children just get it? They learn about Jesus here and they just get it?"

Dear Father, Thank you for every one of our volunteers that chooses to worship You each week by serving the children and families You have entrusted into our hands on Sunday mornings. Thank you for their commitment to teaching our children that they are loved by you, that they were created to be an answer that our world needs, that you care about the details of their everyday life, that they will always be embraced by us. I am honored to serve with such an amazing team! We truly are blessed...thank you!

Recap Post

A few things we have been up to the past 2 weeks:

Visiting Grandparents:

Playing with Cousins:

Cherishing a few moments of "Girls only" time and celebrating Baby "Jonah's upcoming arrival (My sister, Melanie's 6th baby...5th boy!):
(Sorry...couldn't get the picture to turn!)

(The guys got some alone time too...just no camera's were allowed on the putting greens)

Enjoying Each other:

A trip to Peru:

The staff of our FRC Lima Campus

Didn't get many pics of our Peru trip, but man, it was amazing to meet people who speak a different language and who live in a different country but who serve the same God and who are also called to partner with people to help them reach their God-potential..makes you feel like you are family in 2 minutes flat of non-interpreted conversation.

All this visiting and traveling has left us delightfully.....



We really are Sunscorched and Satisfied.
