Yesterday when I saw my midwife...she said that instead of my measuring 31 1/2 weeks...I was measuring 39 weeks! I knew my dates were right, but she said that my measuring big could mean: 1. that I had twins, 2. I was due next week, or 3. that I had extra fluid. So, she scheduled me for an ultrasound today, and I just got back from having one. The ultrasound confirmed my feelings...~WE ARE HAVING A BOY, AND I'M ONLY HAVING ONE~!!!! Noah is DELIGHTED!! After he found out that our baby was a boy...He stood beside me while I was having the ultrasound and asked, "It's a HE for ME...and we get to take him Home?" =) The ultrasound revealed that I'm still due when I thought I was...May 24th or 25th...but that baby is making extra fluid. Baby tested to be just fine, and they are planning to do non-stress tests on him twice a week, just to keep an eye on things. The doctor said most of the time extra fluid does not mean problems, which was comforting to hear. Baby and I would appreciate prayers that God will give us the strength to do the deputation services that we need to do in the next few weeks. We are heading out to have our first service tomorrow evening in North Carolina. Since it is the furthest service away we scheduled it for this first week, so we could get it done before I get any further along. Also, I'm getting so uncomfortable...that I don't know how my baby bump can get any bigger...I think I will just pop. It would be nice if the extra fluid would go away on it's own, which they said doesn't happen often...but God is able! Thanks for your prayers!
Dec. 18th, 2015 found us coming back to the U.S.A. from South America, but to continue working as full-time missionaries with our mission. With our Children's age, we have been planning for years to come back at this time. We remain under appointment with Global Holiness Mission to continue serving Colombia and Argentina. We will be making trips to teach, preach, and disciple the nationals on the fields. Now that we are serving our people with missions trips from out of the States, we will also be ministering via digital and written ministry in Spanish and English for those that are on the field. We so appreciate all of y'all's prayers for us! None of this would be possible if it weren't for a team effort of you and others like you. God has been doing great things, let's ask and expect more from Him!

You are welcome to take a peek into our exciting lives! We have served Jesus for nearly 8 years in Colombia and nearly 2 years in Argentina! Now that we are serving our people with missions trips from out of the States, we will also be ministering via digital and written ministry in Spanish and English for those that are on the field. We so appreciate all of y'all's prayers for us! None of this would be possible if it weren't for a team effort of you and others like you. God has been doing great things, let's ask and expect more from Him! We are a close family that loves to do things together. Those things include sharing God's love, going places together, baking and having company, singing, and thanking God for each moment! We are delighted with our 6 sweet children with which God has blessed us, and love being a "team" for Jesus! ~Heather~
