We are getting ready to celebrate Elijah’s birthday real soon. Our only boy will be turning 10! It doesn’t seem like that long ago he was born. Or that I should be old enough to have a 10 year old! (^_^) We were riding to a restaurant to do the traditional birthday eating out and we were talking about things. I mentioned to him about his age and how I’m glad we haven’t broken him or killed him yet!
Seriously though, he has grown into a fine boy. He has gotten saved, been baptised, and has surrendered his life to Christ. He doesn’t yet know what he wants to do in life. One day he may be an astronaut, preacher, president, or missionary. It doesn’t matter to me as long as he is doing God’s will and following God.
On another note, there hasn’t really been any news on our paperwork appeal. I got a letter saying that it was received on Sept 19th. I am thinking about writing them to ask on the progress of it, but haven’t decided yet. But we aren’t just sitting around waiting. We have been praying about the appeal. We have tried to stay busy with some language study, home schooling, helping around our home church, and preaching out as God allows.
If any independent Baptist churches would be interested in having us come though, just give me an email and let me know. I have been working on scheduling some more, but that is a slow process. Thank you to those who have prayed for us, sent us encouraging notes, and have sent financial support. God bless!
