The Green House

Some of you know that Greg is a Youth Minister at CBC.
We are blessed to have a "Youth House" for the young people to gather and worship.
Greg and the Youth agreed on naming it "The Green House."
It is a place for them to come and grow in Christ.
Greg and Jonathan have been working MANY, MANY hours on the Green House.
It is really coming together!
It is AMAZING to see the progress!
I wish had before pictures! It has been an incredible transformation.
(HG has helped her Daddy and Jonathan. She helped with the chairs, lighting, and fog machine. )

Daddy and HG
The Youth and Will painted the totally awesome forrest theme!
Sorry for the glare!
The Diligent Workers
Todd, Greg, and Jonathan

We are almost finished!!!!
I just want to take a moment and tell y'all about my hubby.
He has really poured himself into this ministry! It is not a job for him!
It is a PASSION!
I am so richly blessed to be his wife!
Thank you, Babe, for all of your hard work and dedication to God!
You are an AMAZING, Godly husband!
I am so grateful for you!

Tough Week with a Happy Ending!

My new favorite verse is James 1 : 2 - 4.
"Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds,
because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.
Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete,
not lacking anything."

This week has been tough. HG has had some medical issues.

And it was the 16th anniversary of my mother's passing.

All of this, mixed with the immigration delays has been a little overwhelming.

Unfortunately, I did let Snickers and M&Ms become my best friends. (I am currently breaking off our relationship. It is so hard ... on them. LOL!)

However, we did receive some great news on Thursday!!

Thursday morning at 7:32, I received a call from the Immigration Officier.

She stated that she was "granting our clearances." They should be here by Tuesday!


Now we are scrambling to get all of our expired documents renewed (if they older than 6 months - China will not accept them).

HOPEfully, everything will be sent to the consulate by Friday. That is my goal anyway!!!

And now, HG is doing much better!!!


I would also like to share some really great news!

The Gibbs received their referral on Friday! Please follow their blog.

They have suffered a difficult loss, but our God is faithful!!

Now they have a BEAUTIFUL daughter, Hannah! (LOVE the name!;>)
