From Birthdays to Auctions.........

Wow! Where has the time gone? We have been so busy here trying to get everything ready for our move. Mark and I just celebrated 15 years of marriage and Josiah's 2nd birthday on April 7th. It is so hard for me to think that after the Lord took three of my babies to be with HIM in glory that he would give us Josiah after we surrendered our lives to His will. Josiah has been such a blessing to us along with Taylor and Hunter and we pray that God will use all three of them in a mighty way. We also had the pleasure of traveling to Ashford Connecticut to meet The Leavitt's who help run the Jeff Braun foundation. They were able to put together an auction and benefit dinner on Saturday evening to help raise money for the building of Hope of Honduras. I must say that it was my first ever auction and while it was for charity it was a ton of fun. We had a great time visiting Connecticut and seeing just how beautiful the state is. God is amazing! He placed the trees and rocks and hills in such a way that all you can think is wow! Which brings me to a thought; how many of us just step back and look at what a wonderful artist GOD is. We could never paint or draw such beauty on our own. It really was beautiful to see. We were also able to meet with Bill Braun, Jeff's father and tell him of the progress that we are making in Honduras. We are thankful that he and his wife adopted Jeff when he was a baby from Honduras. It is because of a dream that their son had that we have the funding and path to Hope of Honduras children's home. We can hardly believe that in less than 12 days we will be packing up again and moving to Costa Rica. We are so thankful for you all who support us not only in funds but in prayer. We love you all.
