Dude….I’m seriously old!

02 Feb

Seriously, Where has the time gone? It’s 2014 and I sit here scratching my bald head wondering where the last year has gone. Not only has my first full year as a missionary flew by like Turbo on steroids, but so has the last 10 years of my life.

The events of this last year have really challenged me to think about what I want to do when I grow up. This last year has brought about some life events, that to be blatantly honest, make me feel old. For instance, my oldest daughter outgrew my wife, I married my oldest niece to a nice Christian man, and I started going bald. Whats next…40!

Amber's Wedding

Amber’s Wedding

Honestly, I sometimes wrestle with the fear that my life will pass leaving me with a heart of unfulfilled dreams and goals. There is so much I want to do for the Lord! There is so much that can be done for the Lord!

I guess all I can do at this point is continue to plow ahead. Continue to dream, continue to be available and continue to be willing to get my hands dirty doing the Lord’s work.

So as this year approaches with all of its work, trials and blessings, we ask for your prayers to stay focused and open to what God wants to accomplish through our family here in Honduras.

Thank you for all you do for us. Your prayers really do matter.

    Witnessing my 1st granddaughter getting married to a Christian man with my my son officiating the wedding, I’m realizing some of my dreams are coming to fruition. Thank you for serving!
