Coming soon!


When we arrived in the states we found out we were expecting #3. It was so exciting, we wanted more children, but were waiting on God’s timing. This seemed like an awkward time.
We decided because we were between countries, maybe we would just wait until the birth and then move. It was a couple of months difference.

After visiting the city where we are moving. We just couldn’t shake the feeling that we needed to get there soon. There is such an open door right now, so we changed our plans and are leaving about 10 weeks before the due date! It’s been a roller coaster of emotion thinking about all that needs to be done and going to a new place to have a baby. But I’ve never been more excited for an opportunity to trust God in this way.
This sweet girl already has a special place in our hearts. Her name is Yaelle a different one but it means “God’s strength” the Hebrew version of Jael. And once I heard the meaning it brought tears to my eyes, and I knew that was it. We are praying He will give all of us His strength. As I was reading the other day I came across her verse!
Trust ye in the Lord for ever: for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength: (Isaiah 26:4)
Pray for us that all will go smoothly with the move and all the complicated details that go along with that, but mostly that He would be glorified through it all, and the birth of another soul who, Lord willing, will bring Glory to His name.
