Oh, Sweet November!

Wow, everyone! Where has the time gone? September & October have flown by and I am just now getting a chance to write about it. So much has happened & it is time to catch up!

World Mandate (our missions conference) happened in September and it was amazing. Jady was one of the producers & the drummer. Here are some highlights:

Max Lucado was one of our main speakers. He is an amazing man with an amazing message!

 One of our favorite things about World Mandate is the ministry that happens to the people who come. It is a time of God speaking and calling many people into the things He has for them.

There were some incredible artistic pieces that happened throughout the weekend!

The conference had up to 8,000 at it's largest session!

Sophie is well into her kindergarten year. As you may guess, she loves it. It was quite an adjustment for mom, but Sophie made the adjustment just fine. Here are a few pics of the kids!
Sophie turned 6!!!

The kids helped volunteer at a 5k to raise money for human trafficking.
Tait was a dog for costume day at preschool.

When we felt God leading us back to Texas we weren't exactly sure what He had in store. We knew that Jady would play a key role in producing events like World Mandate, but not sure of much else. In the past few months several things have developed.

One of the main ones is the opportunity to help with the college ministry. There are between 800-1,000 college students who attend Antioch, so the college ministry is a significant part of Antioch. This fall Jady has taken on the role of Associate College Pastor.

His primary role in that is to help preach in the college services and develop key leaders. It is a fun & fast paced job that he loves.  We will have more updates on his job in our next update.

If you want to watch some one of Jady's sermons, here ya go!

Adoption update! We are currently #4 on the waiting list. That means that 3 other families are in line to get children before we do. So, when will it be our turn? Probably in the late spring.

December marks 3 years of us being in this adoption journey. Our hearts are starting to get a bit tired at this point, but we are SO close! Please pray that God would move some mountains and speed this process along.

We will send specific needs for adoption in our next update.

Thanks so much team! We COULD NOT do it without you guys. Your support and investment in us means more than you know!

Have a great Thanksgiving!
