Here we are! It’s officially 2013 and we have a lot of news to share! If you are an old reader then you may have read many entries about my beloved Flint Monsters. The Flint Monsters are 5 beautiful children that I have loved on since the oldest was 3 when I was in high school! Their mother, Janelle is my closest friend, she has been there through high school break ups, emotional rollercoasters in my teenage life, marriage, life changes, and she was even there for both of my children’s births and has taken on the roll (along with her hubby) as godparent to my sweet kiddos. My dear friend is getting ready to embark on a grand adventure all the way across the country to Washington, she’s following God’s calling to be part of an amazing ministry and she needs your help! They can use prayers first and foremost, but they are also looking for donations to help fund their mission to start a Celebrate Recovery ministry as part of Restoration Ministries. Donations can be accepted online via their website HERE or you can mail a check to:
11700 Mukilteo Speedway suite 201
Mukilteo, WA 98275
Memo Line: Nathan and Janelle
But like I said, more important is that they receive prayers for safety on their journey to their new home, prayers for encouragement, strength, and that they can reach many people through their ministry who need the amazing program, Celebrate Recovery.
We are going to miss the Flint’s so much, but I cannot tell you how excited I am for them. This is something they’ve talked about doing (going into ministries) since I met them almost 10 years ago. Their family has been a major part of my life.. heck, they ARE my family. Not only are they going on this incredible mission but they are also blessing us by allowing us to rent their home. So in April we will be moving out of this apartment and into a home. A real home without neighbors attached above, below, or beside us… a real home with a yard that we can watch our children run around and play… a real home where we can live and grow and play without worrying how our lives are affecting those living around us. We will have wonderful neighbors (aka Janelle’s parents who are honorary grandparents to our children) and we are within walking distance to a great park and library. Can you believe it? We can’t! We’re looking forward to seeing where God leads both of our families, and doing everything in our power to ensure that our children still “see” and spend time with their godparents and “godsiblings”… whether that’s by snail mail, facebook, blogging, or maybe skype!
We love you Flint Family. Thank you for blessing us throughout the years and sharing in some of our most memorable moments… our lives wouldn’t be the same without you in it!
