It's hard to believe we've been home a little over two months already! The time has flown by.
I (Sharon) had the opportunity to work at Multnomah for two months - filling in for the lady who took my former position there while she was away on maternity leave. What a blessing it was to spend time with my friends at Multnomah again. Seeing all the students arrive there last week made me anxious to get back into working with college students again! Our initial plan was to try to get back over to Europe in January or February . . . but we've needed to rearrange our plans a bit
. . . because we found out we are expecting a new little Mormance!! To make a long story short, this is an answer to many years of prayer! Each day the Lord gives us with this little one is a gift to us. We pray that He will allow us to carry this child to term and have a healthy baby.
Now we are planning on going back over to Europe next summer, hopefully in July. This brings me to our second piece of good news: we found out that we have been officially accepted to Josiah Venture so we can begin building a ministry partner base. We are so excited to join the work that the Lord is doing in the country of Slovenia! And we are excited to join our friends who are already living and serving there!
