The kid's first day of school was August 11th. That day held lots of new things for them: new state, new school, and first time ever riding the bus! Reagan has her license and is now driving herself and Abbi to school (gasp!), but the boys continue to ride the bus.
Nathan's parents came for a visit! One of the reasons they came was to watch the kids so we could attend Praying Pelican Mission's meetings in Minnesota for a few days. It is always such a blessing to know they are in great hands when we leave them.
We had a great time in Minnesota at the PPM meetings, it's always great to spend time with our amazing friends that also work at PPM!
A couple days after returning from Minnesota, we met our friends for the day while they were vacationing an hour away from us. Robin is one of our friends who used to work at PPM, it was so great to spend time with her, her husband Cory, and her sweet baby - Asher! Love that we only live a few hours away from them now.
August also brought Hurricane Ida. We experienced lots of rain, wind, and tornado warnings. We were very blessed to not have any negative impact from the storm and are praying for all of those affected in devastating ways, just two hours west of us in New Orleans.
It has been a month full of joy, but also of heartache as we have watched devastation across the world unfold. Our hearts break for those in Haiti who once again, were majorly impacted by an earthquake. It has been heartbreaking to see the people in Afghanistan in such turmoil. We are praying for all of those in New Orleans and other places that have been devastated by Hurricane Ida.
Please join us as we continue to pray for all of these things, that God's hand would move and that we would see miracles take place. Pray that we would continue to trust Him, and that He is working even when we don't see it.
We love and appreciate each of you so much, thank you for partnering with us in the ministry God has called us to. God bless.
