It must be a Wednesday because I can’t come up with anything witty for a post title.
- Our T2 Team is about to be officially renamed from 20 OHMS to 21 OHMS. Tim and Michelle O’Brien are in a maternity ward somewhere in Queretaro today in order to have a baby girl. Michelle was on bed rest for many weeks due to premature labor and since husband Tim “took her off” of bed rest about 2 weeks ago when it was considered safe for the baby, not much has happened. The doctor wanted them to go ahead and schedule an induced labor and birth this Thursday. He later bumped it up to today for fear of missing a conference tomorrow! Rest assured he has everyone’s best interests at heart. Pray for Michelle (and Tim) and baby Jenna today. We haven’t heard any word yet but I’m fairly certain that the moment Tim and Michelle have a new baby, the first thing on their mind is NOT to call me. Go figure.
- Since Tim is busy with baby business, I got the relief pitching call in the bullpen to cover the 4 ESL classes last night and tonight. Tim was on top of it and even gave me notes to work with so I wouldn’t be totally clueless. Last night went fine…I was only half-clueless as expected.
- One of our dear homeschooling families have come to a very difficult but Spirit-led decision to leave the field. They have a great challenge in front of them and we know God will take care of them as they move to the Cleveland, OH area. For us, this not only means we will miss them, we’ll miss the mom being one of our literature circle teachers and we’ll miss their 6 kids!
- Ironically, two new families were approved by CAM from the long road of raising support to the long road of moving to Mexico and learning Spanish and finding working out their ministry plans.
So, the cycle of missions and missionary families continues onward as does the cycle of new life. (no deaths to report…which is just fine with me!)
