We are a family of fifteen: eight already with Jesus and seven in desperate need of Him. This is the story God is writing in our lives. Proverbs 16:9

Request for Prayer

On May 15, we moved into a new home. We have been so blessed to have a place of our own with a backyard for Andrew and soon Elijah to play in.

Last night, on our stairs, Andrew fell and broke his arm. He was taken to Kosair Children's Hospital and had surgery at 1:15 a.m. The Orthopedic Surgeon placed two rods in his arm to repair the break and he is now in a cast that covers his entire right extremity. It is difficult to explain to a two-year-old why he can no longer use his arm or hand. It is also very difficult to see him in such pain. Please pray for him, and for us as we deal with this trial together.

Hopefully, I will be able to post pictures of our new home soon as well as Andrew sporting his new cast when he is feeling better.

Micah graduated cum laude on May 12, 2006 from Boyce College with a B.A in Biblical and Theological studies. He has worked so diligently for the last 5 years and we are so thankful he has completed his degree, especially while balancing jobs and family. Now, he can fully commit to his Masters Degree in his schoolwork. He will continue at Southern Seminary pursuing a Masters of Divinity in Pastor Counseling.

At the same time, Tiffany graduated from the Seminary Wives Institute with an Advanced Certificate in Ministry Studies.

It was a God-glorifying ceremony that brought to mind all the ways God has sustained us these past five years here in Louisville. The graduating class and guests concluded the time together singing a hymn written for the first commencement of the Seminary in 1860 by Basil Manly, Jr., Soldiers of Christ, in Truth Arrayed. It's poignant verses point toward our work here on earth sharing the gospel. The charge is humbling and profoundly appropriate as we move from this chapter of our lives to the next.

We were thankful to have Micah's family with us for the celebration. Andrew enjoyed having so much attention!

Soli Deo Gloria!
