We are finally home. We spent only one night in the hospital.

Daniel's Birth Day

So Chris wakes me up at around 4 AM the morning of July 26, 2006, and says “we are having the baby today, get ready to leave for the hospital.” Being that it was not even light out, I did what most fathers would do in my position, I went back to sleep. Eventually I got out of bed about forty minutes later.  So this day has finally come. We have always had pretty healthy pregnancies. We had several false alarms with Eric, our first child, thinking that this was the “big day,” only to fall asleep and wake up in the morning and go to work like normal. With Faith, our second, Chris knew exactly when the contractions were real and not false labor, so I knew this time again, she would know for sure and that I could trust her judgment with this. So I got out of bed pretty certain that our son was going to be born on this day.

She's Back!

Jessica Carter came to visit us last Summer with a Calvary International Discovery Missions team. She kept emailing us after the trip saying she really wanted to come back for another visit. Well, she is back, and we are so blessed to have her. It is always so cool to have people come visit us on a short-term missions trip. It is even cooler when they come back for more. This time, instead of coming with a team, she came totally on her own--brave girl. Again I say, how about YOU? When is it your time to come to the other side of the world?

Since we were six . . .

Jason Branch and I have known each other since were were six years old. He and his wife Dina, and her son Brenden, are visiting us on a short-term missions trip. They are hoping to bring a team from their church here next summer. If you live in the North-Central Florida area, maybe you could join their team. It is a blessing to have them here,

Independence Day?

From a letter of John Adams to his wife: "The Second Day of July 1776, will be the most memorable Epocha, in the History of America.- I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated, by succeeding Generations, as the great anniversary Festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by Solemn Acts of Devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfire and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more." Happy 2nd of July, on this day in 1776 the unanimous vote for the declaration of independence from the empire of Great Britain was voted and agreed upon. On that day, according to John Adams: "the greatest Question was decided, which ever was debated in America, and a greater perhaps, never was or will be decided among Men. A Resolution was passed without one dissenting Colony 'that these united Colonies, are, and of right ought to be fr
