Just a few months away from having a little boy in the family. I’m kinda nervous because we have a lot to do before then. The office space needs heat and transformed into a nursery, a changing table needs finished, and we need at least 20 more people to partner with our ministry so we can be finished with the big undertaking of raising our support.

I spent some serious hours on photos and a video for this upcoming year. We hope do do more like it to get students interacting with their thought about God. And the bigger hope, that they will be open to talk about and eventually embrace the Gospel of Christ.
eventually posted here:

Late last year we moved in temporarily with my parents in hopes of getting to Morgantown ASAP. Operation Cru at WVU was under way! But when our support was coming in slower than we hoped we had a tendency to complain. But thank God that He kept me patient enough to be a part of my mom's new journey with God (she told me I could write about mentoring her through her walk with Christ but I told her I would keep the details to a minimum). Operation Cru at WVU has changed direction a bit... it's more like Operation " Let God use me when and whereever He wants me. We are still "stoked" to be going to WVU to minister to students there but we love what God is doing with us in the in between. I'd have to say I'm beginning to understand that learning patience and perseverance aren't just methods of God's cruel torture--- they actually can teach us something. Huh! Who woulda thunk it. I'm learning to wait on God. I hope I've gotten better at living in the in-between.

Who woulda thought that trying to buy a house is as confusing and complicated as creating the atom bomb. Christina and I have been house-hunting for a while now and we have come to a couple of conclusions...
People want more for a home than they are worth.
"Spatious yard" means the yard is on a 45degree slant.
"Classic home" means old and falling down.
"Privacy" means overgrown bushes and a yard that no one want to walk into.
"Great starter home" means you can afford this because it is a piece of trash.
And most other "realtor terms" are designed to mislead and romaticise junky homes.
So alas, we have a couple that we befriended back in our college years and they called us out of the blue and told us they wanted to sell their home. We're excited about that. The price seems about right and the style is older but we like that. It's a neat place- and we're wrestling whether we should jump on it. Please be praying that we make the right decision and that we can raise enough monthly support for the bank to give us a mortgage in Sept. Honestly I didn't know if we would ever get a home-- since it seems like we've been without a place of our own for years! We're so excited to be moving into this new stage!

Sing this with me (to the tune of "Boys are back in town")... "The friends are back in town". We are so glad to be back in Dallas to see our great friends, our ministry team partners, and Tex Mex Food. Of course the food is what excites us least. We're trying our hardest to share our vision of campus ministry with as many prospective partners as we possibly can in a 3 week period. Thanks so much to our great friends who are helping us make those contacts! We couldn't do it without you. We are blessed to have people half way around the country investing their time into our lives and ministry.
