It's Here!

This is Jesse and I ten years ago in El Paso, Texas, getting ready to lead a team of teenagers across the border for a mission trip. (Back when people still let their kids cross the border for short term mission trips.)We had just been engaged a couple of months at this time and were looking forward to getting married the following summer. Then, we figured he'd finish school before we started a family. But then, I got impatient for one of those, too... and we're glad for the little ones God has blessed us with!

But finally, finally! I got to send out this invitation this week! And we are so excited that the end of the chapter is done and in anticipation to see what God has for us next!

We cannot even begin to express our thankfulness to God and to so many brothers and sisters who have encouraged us and prayed for us through this past decade... but we are grateful! It has not been an easy road, but there have been many blessings along the way and we are grateful for how God has grown us and stretched us in so many ways.

Linking up today:
