A quick update...

It’s been a while since I’ve posted, as we’ve not had connection to the internet. A lot has transpired over the last few weeks. It’s been exciting to watch God work and orchestrate everything so beautifully. He always provides for our needs (and wants even) sometimes before we ask Him.

We are now in the house in Williston. We’re in the process of remodeling so the house is a little bit of a mess, but God is blessing and we are making progress. Right now, we’ve torn up the carpet and we’re working on painting, cleaning, etc. We’re also preparing for our big trip in about three weeks. We have tickets to leave on the 24th and arrive in Malawi on the 26th! There’s lots of packing and sorting to do. We’re trying to decide what to take and what to leave. Please pray for us on this, as it’s not easy!

Hannah is doing well. She’s been a real sweetheart through all of this. I’m sure it’s not easy for her, but she’s taking it pretty well. She has six teeth and is working on more. She also likes to say “Amen” when we finish praying!

Victor is doing well, and staying busy. He’s got a lot on his plate with working on the house and working out trip details. He’s doing a good job of it all though and also being sensitive to Hannah and I!

I’ve already reached 18 weeks (almost halfway) in my pregnancy. Sometimes we get so busy, that I even forget that I’m expecting. This time is VERY different from last timeJ. We’ll be getting a sonogram on the 20th of this month. I’m looking forward to seeing our little one (and possibly finding out whether it’s a boy or girl!).

We would appreciate your continued prayers on our behalf as we continue to plan, prepare and then leave!

Welcome to the missionary life stile always moving when the pot is full. I don't know how many times I've moved when I was pregnant or just had a baby. I think us missionary folk like to live exciting and eventful lives. We will be praying for you and especially Hannah as she feels your stress too. Good memories and also times to watch God bless.
