Update

I’ve not been writing much the last month or so. It’s not that things aren’t going on but it’s almost like so many things are going on that I don’t know where to start and am using my energy elsewhere. But a few bullet points to keep you in the loop:

  • Handsome is leading worship at our new church each week for both services and is really enjoying it. I don’t think I mentioned it but we bought him a new  guitar after we moved since he sold his back in New Zealand. I am able to sing with the team on occasion, but not regularly because of the three kids. God is really working in our church, it’s almost like a revival. Since we’ve been attending there  has been an average of one baptism a week. People are getting saved and being discipled and lives are being changed. It’s exciting. We’re excited about being involved there.
  • Precious is nearly four years old. We’re planning her birthday party - just a few little girls coming over and we’ll have princess dress-ups and make princess wands and eat pink cake. She can’t wait. She doesn’t know it yet but her grandparents are taking her to Disneyland the week after her birthday.  In addition to being four, she is teaching herself to write letters, which amazes me. I’ve worked with her a little bit on her letters but she’s basically teaching herself.
  • Which leads to my next point - I’m starting to prepare to homeschool Precious next year. It’s not that the schools here aren’t good, because they are. But homeschooling provides a level of flexibility that regular school doesn’t. We’ve been thinking and praying about it for nearly two years now and that’s where we’re headed. So I’m researching curriculum and watching Precious to see what kind of learner she is so I know best how to guide her learning.
  • We finally got our health insurance sorted out. Probably the biggest source of anxiety for me since our move. But at least we have dental too :)
  • God continues to challenge me about my priorities and choices in my everyday life. Perhaps more on that in the future.

That’s all for now. Thanks for continuing to check up on us and hopefully I’ll write again soon.
