We spent an encouraging weekend in Avoca, NY with our friends at their Aunt and Uncle Rusty’s house. What a great time of relaxation, Settler’s of Catan and prayer. We enjoyed hearing their stories about love and missions work!


Our Sending Church had their official meeting tonight and committed to supporting us monthly! We are seeing a trend… our support is increasing 10% per month. And you know what that shows about the awesomeness of our God? We will be fully funded by our departure month of September if our support continues to increase by 10% each month! He does work in amazing ways, while this may not be a continuous trend, it was quite encouraging to see that we are getting there! Thank you Lord for those little moments of encouragement, we are so blessed!


Mandy had a great time with the wonderful ladies from Mountain Stream! Thank you to Sherrie for sharing with us from God’s Word about pressing on. Needed to hear that! And my dear friend Cintia, such an encouragement to me!


Maicol is finishing up homework from a one week intensive class and beginning the first day of his last semester!


Thank the Lord for Snow Days! Stayed home and took a much needed break. Movie Day!


Mandy had a great Seminary Wives meeting followed by Bobby coming to BBC! Another wonderful weekend with our Newman family!


Went to a beautiful wedding! Congrats Farron and Denise! And reconnected with Brett and Janelle. Thanks for teaching us Settlers of Catan!


Praise the Lord for a new year! Maicol and I are thinking and praying through so new initiatives we can take in building a stronger marriage and enjoying our time on earth. Mandy has been looking forward to beginning a bible study of Esther by Beth Moore and found out her church is offering it starting this month! How cool! God’s timing is perfect! Also at our church, Parker Hill, we began a great new series today called “Toxic”. We are looking forward to learning how to purify and cleanse our hearts and minds from all the toxicity of sin in us and around us. To God be the Glory!
