A Sunny Day in May

On Sunday, we had the privilege of having a very warm day, and we took advantage of it by spending a few hours at a local park. Now the gray weather has returned, and we wait for another sunny day...
However, we are excited about the fact that our monthly support goal level has reached 90% ! This is amazing and only possible because God has moved many hearts to support this ministry. In the beginning of the whole process of fund-raising, the thought of reaching 100% was overwhelming to say the least. These last 8 months haven't been without challenges and struggles, but we're learning that God often uses hard things to teach us. It's the hard things that usually get our attention, cause us to think, and hopefully bring about change.

Please continue to lift our family up in prayer, as the next few weeks are going to bring hard things--however exciting! We are anticipating the birth of our 4th baby in two short weeks, as well, Rob continues to plan out what we are going to ship and how and when. Since our house has been listed for sale, we have had only one showing. Please pray that God brings a buyer.

Until next time...

Your kids are beautiful. And is Wes already riding a bike with no training wheels?

I am thinking of you as you prepare to welcome another little Barber to the world. Hugs and kisses to new babe.

Aw thanks. Wes is riding a run-bike, which I think is one of the neatest innovations! It doesn't have any pedals so he can push himself along and learn to balance. We taught Faith how to ride her 2-wheeler last summer by taking her pedals off and turning it into a run-bike. Wesley often finds himself coasting with his feet up, so I think he's ready for pedals soon! :)
