Where has the time gone?

Wow, where has the time gone?  It's crazy to see that our last blog post was in January!  2012 has been a very busy year in our personal lives and we neglected this blog.  Yikes.

We are excited for the way God has continued to work in our lives through Two Hearts and at home.  Three of our board members have started the adoption process this year; two from China and one foster care to adopt.  My family started the adoption process in January and brought our son home from Russia in June.  As anyone who has adopted before knows, the process is all consuming and leaves little room to concentrate about much else.

In our absence from this blog we have continued to do what the Lord has called us to do in Kazakhstan and Russia.  I woke up this morning to a wonderful email from our friends in Russia with news that the new playground we provided was installed and opened today. Two of my children were born in Volgograd and a huge piece of my heart remains there.  It's wonderful to see the babies be able to have such a fantastic playground, they had nothing but rusted out, decades old "equipment" before.

We are planning our 4th mission trip to Kazakhstan in May 2013 and look forward to traveling back to build another playground and loving on precious children.

As the Christmas season begins we are planning on supporting the children in Russia again and hope you will too!  

We hope to be better about keeping this blog updated.  In the meantime we do try to post to our facebook page more often.  You can find us here -
