Thank you all for your prayers these past several weeks. The Lord saw fit to keep our baby with Him, and we are grateful for the answered prayers through this miscarriage. God is good and we grew closer to Him and to one another through it all. Please read some of these posts to get more of a detailed update on that.
We spent a week at a Missions Conference at Faith Baptist Church in Albert Lea, MN. It was a tremendous blessing to us to serve with the people of Faith Baptist Church. It happened to be right in the middle of the miscarriage, but it was exactly where God wanted us at the time. We couldn't have asked for a better circumstance or sweeter more compassionate servants of the Lord with whom to share it. We truly enjoyed focusing on "Declaring His Glory" and sharing our burden for Germany.
Currently, we are enjoying the Missions Conference at Faith Baptist Bible College. Our display is up and we're meeting and greeting and getting opportunities to interact with students. In a few weeks, we'll be displaying at the IARBC Annual Conference.
Things are coming along nicely at the house. We're still working on it and still have a quite a bit to finish before moving in. A group of men from a supporting church will be helping Jim work on a Saturday in April. We are so grateful for those who have helped on this project that will get us one step closer to full-time deputation!
Josefine is growing, growing, growing! She turned 9 mos yesterday, is starting to get up on her hands and knees and rocks, but finds that she is "stuck" and doesn't care too much for it. Soon, she'll love the opportunity to get what she wants by crawling, though!
We're coming up on "Wedding" season as well, and we have several wedding photoshoots through June. All of which will help finacially with our deputation trips and outfit and passage. In the middle of June, we'll start a road trip to Washington state, where we'll have meetings, a camp and VBS and have opportunity to introduce Jim and Josefine to some of my family!
Thank you all sincerely for your prayers and support!
Jim, Sarah & Josefine
