We have neighbors, yall!

We have neighbors! Its true.

For the last two years I have had this imaginary neighborhood in my mind and now by an absolute gift from God, we have the REAL deal.

They speak English too, wahoo!

Look at these precious things.



They are only out here temporarily because God has called them to the mission field. I am going to enjoy every last minute of last minute dinners, random stop bys to the pool in our backyard, wonderful talks about the kingdom, babysitting their little girl, late night run bys to get something I don't have (stores around here don't stay open late), but most of all, enjoying this "country" season together when life is a little more quiet and we are tuned into what He wants to say to us.

Speaking of missions, we have some pretty amazing friends who are loading up their four boys and going to the mission field. I encourage you to click here, see how you can get involved, pray and support them as they take the gospel to the beautiful people of Port-au-Prince.

"For we are His workmanship created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them." Ephesians 2:10
