She Belongs in the Zoo

This week we've...
had snack like a big girl...
visited the zoo...
with Mimi and (not pictured) Poppi...
learned about the physics of a toilet paper roll...
drop kicked a lioness...
and after all that, who wouldn't need a nap?

Millie is nearly 9 months old and her life is quite full for a 8 and 3/4 month old. She really does belong in the zoo...if by zoo you mean an enclosed habitat in which she can't hurt herself or anyone else. She is her mother's daughter and she has the bumps, bruises and brilliant sense of humor to prove it. She wears me out.

We're hoping to share an update with everyone on how we are doing support wise very soon. We're waiting on an update from the lady that handles all of the finances for Equip. Remember if you are wanting to partner with us --------> there is a link to online giving on the right hand side. Thanks to all of you who have spoken with us about the ministry ahead and encouraged us toward the calling God has placed on us. It is a blessing to be journeying with you all.

Madame Blueberry and Online Giving

Well, Millie is on the move and she has the bumps and bruises to prove it. I hold my breath every time she pulls up on something. She is an accident waiting to happen for about 95% of the time she is awake. She got her first official boo-boo this week. It wasn't bad at all, but there were tears and a trace amount of blood.
the aforementioned "boo-boo"

She also decided that blueberries are her new favorite food. This round of blueberries required a bath.

This weekend we're going camping and to the zoo. That should result in some interesting tales and probably a bruise or two more.

Our last post talked about our most recent support letter that went out. We are excited to see how God uses this letter to provide for our needs and the ministry ahead. For those of you who read this blog, but maybe didn't get the letter you can still become financial supporters.


Click on this link or visit the same link posted on the right hand side of the blog. The link on the right hand side will be up permanently. Simply fill out the form and in the designation box specify, "Kyle and Jessica Hoover". That's all!

As you can see we've got a lot going on between support raising, normal day to day and chasing little miss around. We covet your prayers and partnership, fo' real.

8 months old! (oh, and you got our letter, right?!)

Hey ya'll

Just wanted you to see the latest milestone for AG (Amelia Grace, that is, or Millie to all her friendlies). She hit 8 months on Sunday! Gulp, that means more movin' and shakin' for her! Ok, more movin' and shakin' for her and her parentals. Ok, more tying everything down and locking everything possible that she could harm herself with. She bumps her head a lot these days, but only cries every 20th time or so...pretty good odds I least good enough that she keeps trying.

mid-laugh (no teeth yet, as you can see!)

Some of you are curious about the red dot on her head. Don't lie. We know you are. We like to pretend it is God's way of preparing her for life as a missionary in India...ok, well maybe, but it is actually a hemangioma. You can look it up. Chances are it will be gone by the time she is two. Just a little something extra on her beautiful face. Happy 8 months sweet girl!

Our sources tell us that those of you on our mailing list should now have our latest letter in hand. What do you think? We hope that you enjoyed catching up on our latest adventures and seeing our heart for the work that God is placing before us. As our Liberian friend Blama would say, "It is no small thing." We need your prayers and support. We are looking for ministry partners so please consider joining with us in this endeavor.

All right, that is it. Gotta make the most of naptime. Can I get an "amen" from all the mamas out there?

The Support Letter

Well, we've finally done it. After a few months of hemmin' and hawin' we've finally got our newest support letter written. If you've ever had to write one of these letters you know that it can be daunting to try and figure out exactly how to word the dreams in your heart. On top of that you are hoping that these dreams in your heart will touch someone else enough to support those dreams. It is a combo of faith, art and just plain ol' writing.

One of the things that we want to be made clear is that we want partners in ministry. We want to join our lives and ministry together with others who have the same vision and hope for the Gospel. We're hoping that was/is communicated through our latest letter, but we also know that the best way we can communicate our passion is by meeting with you face to face and sharing. We're pretty good writers, if I do say so myself, but we're much better when we can look you in the eye answer all your questions.

Feel free to contact us with your questions (email, or otherwise) and don't be surprised if we contact you really soon. I mean just think, if we come and visit we'll bring this little thing...
It's a win/win I think.
