new church...


Our church here in Lynchburg (Redeemer) has just started a new church plant (like a daughter church) in the next town of Forest, and we are excited about going there to serve it and hopefully help it grow! Even though our family lives in Lynchburg, this new church plant is half the distance from the Lynchburg church for us! Because the Forest church starts at 9:00am & the Lynchburg church starts at 11:00am, right now almost all of the college students are going to Lynchburg, but we are hoping that some of them will see the value in joining & serving in a church plant and enjoying all that a smaller body of Christ has to offer. (even if it means waking up a little earlier!) You can pray with us that students would be closer connected with families in our local churches & that we would see more inter-generational community in the coming semesters!


And since church now starts at 9:00am, that means you-know-who gets to skip her morning nap... :)


But we get home in plenty of time to fix lunch & enjoy a meal together before I hit the sack...


well, most of the time. :)

  2. Hi guys! Thanks for calling Sunday. Leah is much better! She's sleeping all night and just has a bit of a runny nose. But that's way better than last Thursday. I love Caroline's pink dress. Isn't is ashame they have to be in pink of people to not call them boys? Ahh...Anyway, we plan to see you guys at church on Sunday. Didn't attempt this past Sunday just in case Leah was still contagious with the whole RSV...not a good thing to share in church!
