What a wonderful time of year it is to reflect on the fact that the God of the universe stepped down from His throne in heaven, became flesh and dwelt among us so that we can choose to spend eternity in heaven with Him through salvation in Christ alone!
Emmanuel, God with us.
What a beautiful reality!
Well, as you can see from our new address we left the great state of Texas so that Aaron could become the new Worship Pastor at Spring Lake Church in Green Bay, Wisconsin!
He started his new job in July and is really enjoying it and we are enjoying our new life! You can follow his ministry HERE!
We moved into our new home in August and we love it!
Our neighborhood is wonderful, several church members live on the surrounding streets and one of the other SLC pastors and his family live right across the street!
God has truly blessed us and it looks like we will get to experience our first white Christmas this year!
They are loving the snow so far and cannot wait to build a snowman when we get enough snow!
One of the coolest things we did this past year as a family was to attend SLC Family Camp! You can read about our experience HERE! It was a great time to be together enjoying God's beautiful creation! We have always wanted to do something like this and we hope to attend every summer!
Erin continues to run her sports ministry, Worthy of the Prize! You can follow her ministry HERE! The biggest news is that her sports camp manual, Worthy of the Prize Sports Camps, is in the final stages of the publishing process and is due to release February 2011 just in time for churches to use it for Summer 2011!
Jim Sundberg (VP of the Texas Rangers baseball organization) is writing the foreword for her manual so maybe she will actually sell a few copies! ;)Anderson is loving his new school where he attends 4K (4-year old kindergarten). He is learning to read, write, count, color and all of that other fun stuff! Thankfully he does really well in school and is always a good boy! He is still as active as ever, loving all things sports-related! We are planning to sign him up to play tee-ball at the Y this spring, we'll let you know how that goes!
Of course we had a blast cheering the Texas Rangers (and the TCU Horned Frogs) onto victory this year!
Aaron, Erin, Anderson and EJ :)
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9:6)
