The Long Overdue News

I apologize for the lack of updates. Part of me has not really wanted to be on the internet much, and it works nice because we don't have internet at our house. However I do realize many of you have been praying for us and just want to know what is going on in our lives.

The Biggest News
Many of you already know this but about 9 weeks ago we found out that we are expecting our 7th child (The baby is due the end of December beginning of January). It was a surprise but we are very excited and blessed. This came shortly after our debriefing, where the staff advised us to stay longer than 6 months. After praying about it for some time and getting more counsel it was apparent that getting everything done in 6 months was not reasonable. And once we found out we were pregnant that was the icing on the cake. With that we have a goal to get back to Uganda in March.

What have we been up to?
The whole month of June we were traveling to see family, and friends. We also visited a couple churches. It was challenging to be constantly on the go but also encouraging in many ways. Other than that we are enjoying our summer off from school (me more than anyone). Cody has been busy with helping with different ministries in our area and is going to be helping with developing some simple church planting in our area.

I will be honest and say being here has been more of a struggle than I thought it would be but God has been teaching me so much, and growing me in more ways than I could ever imagine. I am hoping to put my thoughts together soon and share with you a theme God has been working in my life.
