Quick Update

I haven't blogged in quite some time - I'm rethinking the way I blog & have been preoccupied with some other things lately. BUT, I'm flying to India tomorrow & thought I should give everyone a quick update of the life that belongs to Josh & I. I also wanted to request prayers from all of you blog readers... So first, an update from the past 2 months
  1. Zoe started & we're having record numbers - between 70-90!!! Woohoo!
  2. Took 40 young adults camping (yes, I went camping pregnant...and actually, I LOVED it!)
  3. Helped with the Tapestry Women's Conference...enjoyed getting to know Leif & Margaret Feinberg...she made me think about some things & was used by God to plant some dreams in my heart...
  4. Started to get a big belly - yep, in the words of my Pepa, "It looks like you swallowed a watermelon or something..."
  5. Laughed a lot...mourned a little...had some deep & hard conversations...trusting God about things we just don't understand...
  6. We found out that in that watermelon resides a precious little girl! We are super excited & thinking about just who is this little girl?
  7. Met our friends Lukas & Dita in Houston for the U2 Concert - it was pretty much amazing
  8. Had an amazing week with the Pursue & SMI Conferences - LOVED watching God move in people's lives & LOVED getting to share life with some phenomenal people from around the globe
  9. Prepping for India!
So that is our wrap up! We travel to India tomorrow & would cherish your prayers. If we come to mind, especially pray for health & strength...pray that our baby girl is covered & protected...also, we have some mind-boggling opportunities before us & I desperately don't want it to just be meetings or a chance for Paige to talk - I want God & His LOVE, His presence, and His truth to be evident, real, and at work in their lives! Here are highlights...please pray for us!
