Bits & Balderdash

Nick & Jessica:

Today finds me in Oskaloosa Iowa for the wedding of Nick Oliver and Jessica Paige.

This is an incredible blessing as I have watched God working in the lives of these two wonderful young people. We have known the Paige family for years through the ministry of the Iowa Regular Baptist Camp and Nick has been part of our family since the mid 1990's.

It is a real honor to have been asked to have a major part in in their wedding.

Elijah & Benjamin:

As we are in Osky this weekend we are hanging out with Elijah & Benjamin! Coolest thing EVER ... I got to put Elijah down for a nap on Friday by letting him fall asleep on my chest! Wonderful!

Benjamin is growing like a weed! He is getting soooo strong and is looking around. It so so much fun to watch him grow!

Daniel & Maggie:

Daniel has accepted the call to the Calvary Baptist Church in Grinnell, Iowa as the Assistant Pastor in the area of Youth Ministries.

The kids are so excited about the opportunities that are ahead. Yet, there is so much work to be done ... selling their mobile home, finding employment in Grinnell, finding a place to live ..... please be praying for them as they continue to follow God's leading in their lives.

Maggie is doing well. She is coping well with the two boys and seems to be getting enough rest. It is cool to see what a good help Daniel is and how they are really working well together as parents.

I'm not going to lie to you it is weird to see your kids parenting their kids and doing such a great job! I'm stand amazed at the grace of God!

Daniel and Maggie must have had some pretty good role models!
