How He Loves Us

A friend forwarded this song as encouragement - wow, did it work (thank you Tracy, I needed that). I just love how passionately Kim Walker sings about How He Loves Us (stick with the song - you need to watch the whole thing and let it sink in). Yes, He loves us SO. I've experienced it, and it's true - despite the world's denial that He's even there. Despite the world's misunderstanding of who He truly is - beautiful beyond description.

Jesus "made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death - even death on a cross!" Philippians 2:7-8

Vitality Rain Truthseeker

My sister had her second child on Sunday, November 9th. Vitality Rain is doing great! She joins big sister Serenity Snow.
It was so nice to join them for a week after Vitality was born to help out with household duties. I'm very thankful to all of my sweet friends who had playdates for my boys while I was gone, allowing Mark to work and allowing me to go!
Congratulations, Samuel, Lori & Serenity!

TQ Music & Ministry

I'd like to introduce you to the music of our dear friend, Tquan. Tquan’s heart is for the transformation of people’s lives through the power of Jesus Christ. He is gifted in ministering through music, and has set up TQ Music & Ministry as part of following the Lord's leading in his life. Check out his CD, All I Need - I especially like "Don't Stop Praising the Lord."

Also visit his Myspace page or receive his newsletter. It will be exciting to watch and see what the Lord will do with Tquan's gifts and willingness to follow Him.

Mission Providence

We're enjoying having our friends, Stephen & Esme', here with us, with their two children, Chloe and Joseph. They have packed up their home and are leaving soon for South Africa, where they will be missionaries. They are actually returning to their home, as Stephen was born in Zimbabwe and grew up mostly in South Africa while Esme' was born and raised in South Africa. They have set up Mission Providence to rebuild self-sustaining communities in Sub-Saharan Africa, beginning with widows and orphans affected by AIDS. May God bless their sweet family richly.

Havilah is enjoying the extra company...

Charlie Bit Me

OK, I hear everyone's seen this by now, but in case that's not true, check out Charlie Bit Me - it's hilarious. We also enjoy the Remix Version.
