July Newsletter

Furlough in the U.S.

Has it already been a month? We landed in the U.S. ready for a fun filled summer in late June. Travels went pretty good despite Josiah being in our arms for over 24 hours! We were thankful to land and give a very jet lagged baby to Grandma and Grandpa!

The next morning Josiah woke up with a very insignificant cough that became pretty significant after a few days. After he developed a fever, we tested for Covid-19 and he was positive. Our little guy wasn't handling the virus very well and was admitted at Children's Hospital for both Covid-19 and RSV. We were incredibly humbled by the outpouring of love and prayers we received from the body of Christ. Every church that partners with our family, stood with us in prayer. We were in awe watching God use the prayers of his people to bring our baby boy back home! Thank you for praying and believing with us! 

Miraculously, we all stayed healthy and no one else tested positive. God is good! 

10 Years of Marriage & Ministry!

Every Sunday we have been honored to be able to share about Good News Kenya at a different church! This year marks 10 years of serving God in Kenya. In a few days, Fred and I will celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary! 

We have loved seeing many of you as we visit different churches that have partnered with us in the last 10 years. Your encouragement, love, and partnership is what strengthens us to continue to serve God. Thank you! 

Rejoice with us in all that God has done in the last 10 years. We have learned so much over the years. We continue to strive to walk with Christ and desire for Him to lead our mission.
