Finally, we are back on the blog! Our last entry is from Anna Jaymes being born, and we have obviously missed many months! We tried to post before, but something was wrong and it wouldn't post, then we forgot about it. Anyway, we are up and running now.

God is doing so much in our lives and this is a great way to be able to share it all with everyone (especially those that are not on facebook!). The biggest blessing we want to share is Anna Jaymes, of course! Check out the pics and videos (actually, you'll have to come back for the videos, we have to break em up first)!


As most of you know, we are waiting on our house to sell here in St. Pete before we can move back to MS and start the Phase Two ministry. At first, I was really disappointed that God didn't work a miracle and sell our house really fast and send us on to MS earlier this summer. But, then, as Matt originally pointed out, I now keep reminding myself that when the Apostle Paul started on his missionary journey, he ended up in prison. So, my situation could surely be worse! Also, if Paul wouldn't have been in prison writing those letters to the churches, we wouldn't have half of our New Testament today. Therefore, we KNOW God has a plan for us here in St. Pete, despite all the negative comments we hear about the bad housing market making it tough for our house to sell. We are already seeing a lot of God's work unfold. I want to share more about what is going on in a later blog, so keep checking back! I can't wait to share how God works all this out because for a year now, I've known that God was going to use this "selling our house" situation to bring Him glory. So, I am excited to see how it all plays out.

For now, enjoy the pics of our little munchkin growing up! She is crawling all over the place and being so curious. It is so fun watching her grow and learn.
