Spreading her wings

Last summer, my in-laws had a sweet member of their congregation, Charity, that they had spent some time with and she had heard them talk about us periodically. As she began to pray about what she was going to do next, she approached us about living with us to save money for college. We prayed about it for several months and then met with her this last January.

In February, she came to stay with us as she saved money, sought God and prepared for the next season that God had for her. Its been a swift season of intense discipleship and her sweet presence. After 6 months, she headed off this last week to Ozark Christian College in Joplin, MO. We are so excited for all that God has for her and thankful for her time here in our home.

She left early in the morning and we woke up Isaac to say good bye to "EEE."

Charity kept us laughing and could make any story any interesting one. We love you "EEE" and are praying for you as you embark on this new adventure!

This is so sweet, friend! Also, believe me, there are more days than not that I wish you were here to hand out with my crew too! Love you!
