With LOVE From The Griffins!

We hope you all had a fantastic Valentines Day! We truly do love each of you and are so thankful for all the ways you love us. Okay, here is our news!

Sophie & Tait

The kids are doing fantastic and keep us laughing non-stop. Tait's birthday is coming up next month & we can't believe that he will be 3! His speech continues to improve and he still plays drums for about an hour a day. 

Sophie loves to preach. She gets up on her bed or on the fireplace with a pretend microphone and shares the Gospel with her 'audience'. It is a blast to watch her heart for Jesus grow as she gets older.

The kids have formed a band called 'The Berenstain Bear Band'. Here is a pic of band practice.

They love to help cook. Here they are helping Jady make salsa.


Liz is working on helping develop UnBound, which is Antioch's initiative to combat human trafficking. It is something she is very passionate about. She has been able to speak to several groups of sororities at Baylor and also the Antioch women's conference to educate women on the issue. She loves it!

Working on World Mandate, Antioch's mission conference, has been a dream come true for Jady in many ways. He is helping with the production, developing the creative elements and traveling to churches in Texas to invite them to attend.

He also has quite a few speaking engagements. In the next two weeks Jady will be speaking in Norman, OK , speaking at a youth retreat and then traveling to Seattle to speak to the training schools there.

How You Can Pray

1. Adoption - we are on the waiting list for children & still need $4500. Pray that it comes in soon! 

2. World Mandate - would you join us in praying for World Mandate? It is in September & we are believing for more people than ever to come & hear God's heart for the nations.

3. iCON - This is our conference for international missionaries. It is in Colorado, and both of us will be going. Jady is helping produce the conference & Elizabeth is going to help oversees workers learn what they can do to fight human trafficking in their locations. We are needing to raise $2500 for us to attend. We don't have the money, but know that God can provide it!

Thanks for keeping up with us! As always, please let us know what is going on with you and if there are any ways we can pray for you! If you are interested in giving to our needs, see the tab at the top called 'Partner With Us'.
