Yesterday baby had his non-stress test and ultrasound and he got a 10 out of 10...in other words he passed the test with flying colors and got a 100%!! Praise the Lord! We got some adorable ultrasound pics (which I wish I had a scanner to show them to you) and our baby already has the cutest chubbiest cheeks!!! Today I went to see my midwife Stacy and I talked to her about being induced at 39 weeks...(only because one of my midwives had mentioned that to me earlier)...and Stacy said that she's not sure what to do. She said that all the midwives and their back up doctors will discuss my baby and I and our situation and decide what is best and try to tell me next week their plans. She said that they for sure don't plan on letting me go over 40 weeks. (Since I had the extra fluid and 4 weeks ago thought that baby could come any time...these last few weeks ahead of me look like MONTHS!!) My blood sugar is looking good (God is helping me to control it with diet and checking my blood 4 times a day) and it looks like the extra fluid surrounding baby has gone down some, which is encouraging. I was sad about possibly not being induced at 39 weeks because I am MISERABLE and because I have no small amount of pressure on me since my in-laws have their tickets to fly in from AZ on my very due date (May 24th)...and I was hoping to have had our baby before they arrived. Also, with them coming in on that date...we have already scheduled our baby's dedication for the last Sunday that they will be here. My midwife said that if baby decides to come early on his own, that they won't do anything to stop him. So, please just help me pray that God will help baby to come when he is supposed to come (I want what's best for baby)...and that I'll have an easy delivery so I can be at his dedication planned for June 1st...one week after my due date! (And please don't leave any discouraging comments...for as Anne of Green Gables would say..."I'm in the depths of dispair!" =) Thanks for your prayers...I need them right now!
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~
