Well, it is a little belated, but welcome to 2014!
We've stumbled our way into the new year, but we're here and happy to be!
The holidays were a fun and busy time. We were able to enjoy precious family time as we journeyed across the old North State and then the day after Christmas we made our way to Kentucky for Cross Con, a first time mission's conference directed at mobilizing college and seminary students to the work of the Gospel to unreached people group's around the world.
Our time at the conference was motivating and exhausting! We talked with hundreds of college students and have already had some great response and interest in our training courses as a result. It was truly inspiring to see a new generation catch a fresh vision for reaching the world.
Since the conference we (Millie and Jessica) have battled sickness. Bleh, winter is yucky. We managed to squeeze in a fun day of celebration on January 9th, otherwise known as Millie's Birthday! Yes, our wild girl turned 2! 2!!!! She continues to be a ball of joy and we love watching her curiosity and personality as she grows. God is so good to us and we're thankful we get to be her parents.
You'll remember that Kyle took a trip to Kenya back in November. God truly worked in that trip and we apologize for our lack of posts and updates on his journey. He had success in the work and even better he was able to share the hope of Christ in word and deed with the community he traveled too. Please join us in thanks and prayers for future ministry in that area of Kenya.
This really is a season of travel for us. This Friday Kyle begins a 10 day journey to Colombia. He'll be traveling along with some Equip missionaries to help them see if they can use water as a means of ministering to and reaching an indigenous Indian population. Exciting stuff!
Thanks for reading and joining this journey with us. You bless us beyond measure! Praying that 2014 is full of adventure and the unexpected blessing of watching God work all things for our good and His purposes.
Kyle, Jess, and Millie
