Five Blessings

Yesterday, being Father's Day, was a great opportunity to thank God for the neat kids that He has given to Amy and I.  Our five kids are a tremendous blessing!  I'm not sure if it's wrong to feel this way but I can't help thinking that we have the ultimate family.  Praise God for his blessings!      

"Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, The fruit of the womb is a reward.  Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, So are the children of one’s youth.  Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them" (Psalm 127:3-4)

Javen is 15 years old.  He is a fun guy to be with, great on the jungle trail, eager to help, musical, very involved in the youth group, likes to read and write, shaves, is learning how to drive,  is a big encouragement to me and is growing in the Lord.  The ideal first son.  Very manly.

Cullen is 14 years old.  He is a natural leader, good with people, athletic, shaves, plays the guitar, good at math, likes to visit the villages, very involved in the youth group, a great personality and growing in the Lord.  God placed him perfectly as second-born in our family.  Very manly.

Bria is 10 years old.  She is a precious princess girl, very pretty, very resilient, willing to take risks in the jungle, likes to help in ministry, reads her Bible all the time, loves to be with friends, brings joy to everyone around her, not allowed to talk to boys until she turns 40.

Josiah is 8 years old.  He is the kindest young man you will ever meet, very good at soccer, tough on the trail, quiet, fun, joyful, can catch almost any small animal with his bare hands, very smart, serious about reading his bible, memorized Romans 12:1-10 without being told to.  Very manly.

Mya is 5 years old.  She is a precious princess, very pretty, we call her "sunshine", likes to drink coconut water, likes attention, learning how to read, natural born ability to color-coordinate, willing to face the jungle if her dad is with her, prays, wants and try's to trust in the Lord.  Not allowed to talk to boys until she is 40 years old.

Family quote of the day: “What can you do to promote world peace? Go home and love your family.”

Thank you for this short description of your family. We met the last time you were home, but it is nice to have this obviously unbiased account of who they are! You have a reason (perhaps 5) to be a proud father. Of course, being a good husband and having a Godly wife is a help!
