Why We Call Our Blog the Miracle of More

The miracle is a beautiful image of Ephesians 3:20--more than I can ask or imagine. Every day is a miracle. Every moment is a miracle. Specifically for our family, the miracle of more is our family growing in ways I would never have imagined when we first committed to adoption 8 years ago. But, the greatest miracle is the change in ME!

Sunday School On the Mountain

Seeing God's blessings every day.

Yesterday was a "work party." Go figure. We didn't see the party. ;) Joshua helped put a roof on a building. Josie-Tatum and I sweeped, or shoveled, sand out of a building to prepare it for the roof to go on this week. We also pulled weeds from around the construction site. The other ladies spent Saturday painting.

Today, we drove up the mountain. We had the privilege of teaching Sunday School to children in a rural church, where there is no electricity or water. The families in the village have to go down the mountain to a well and "fectc" water to bring home.
The children were so eager to learn, listen, and participate.

The pastor radiated his LOVE for Jesus.

I talked to Ellie and Stan tonight. Another blessing.
Joshua continues to lead singing everywhere we go. He is fitting in beautifully. The mission base at Shayandima is the dwelling place of the LORD.
To those of you who have made it possible for us to be here, thank you! I look forward to sharing so much with you when we get back home.
