10 Years of Blessings


As mentioned the other day, the end of September marks several milestones for us as a family. This Sept 30th is the 7th anniverary of our arriving in England and the 10th anniversary of our going full time in the ministry. While these do not seem so momentous of decisions in retrospect, they were huge leaps of faith at the time for us as a couple and as a family. Many told us we were ruining our lives and would regret our decision. Wrong, wrong, wrong. We have had an incredible 10 years serving God. There are some times we sit around as a family and recite all the blessings God has bestowed upon us in the past decade. We have not starved, we have always had transportation and we sleep warm at night (at least by English standards). Our children have been able to see many sights both in the States and in Europe that would just not have been possible if Kent was still an accountant. We also believe we are much closer as a family because of the ministry and thank God he called us. The years have not been without trials but God has always seen us through them.

We know not was the next decade holds for us should the Lord tarry, but we do know that He will never leave us nor forsake us. It is with that promise we gladly continue on the path God has set before us.
