Tuesday Talk!

My grandparents have lived in the same house in Oregon my whole life. They have always had toys in the front closet, snacks in the kitchen, and fun books and magazine to look at. It’s the kind of house that makes you feel at home immediately… or maybe it’s the people that make you feel that way.

I’m so thankful that Hudson and I could fly down last week and spend a few days with my grandparents and parents. It was a bitter sweet trip: my grandpa continues to battle pancreatic cancer and the reality of him going to be with the Lord is looming.

But in the midst of hard, there were pockets of light: teasing grandpa about the birds and the bees, talking with grandma in the sunshine, shopping with my mama, celebrating Father’s Day early with my dad.

As the Lord brings us to mind, pray for my family, especially my grandpa (for no pain or suffering), my grandma (for peace and a quiet assurance in the Lord), for my dad and mom (for comfort and endurance as they help out), and for my dad’s siblings. I can’t imagine what they’re all feeling and thinking right now.

Praise God, at least four kids accepted Christ during VBS last week! It was a wild week, for sure, and I know Allen was exhausted come Friday afternoon. But so so worth it.

We are continuing to pray for our partnership team to grow. We are just 23% away from our goal (to be at 85% by mid-October in order to attend our final ABWE training in November). That’s about $1,610: 23 people partnering at $70 per month or 32 people partnering at $50 per month.

Thank you for praying, giving, and loving our family. We appreciate you and how the Lord has brought us all together – in person and over the internet.

  1. Family time is always so vital to maintaining health relationships. It’s a blessing to see you spending time with those you love. Also, what a blessing to see Allen taking on VBS in the midst of college. Your lives are an inspiration! God bless you all!
