Wait a Minute Mr. Postman

What got two exciting things in the mail today. Matt and I sponsor a child through Compassion International. I've known about Compassion for many years but God pressed on our hearts to give and sponsor a child last November after reading Kelly talk about her life changing visit to El Salvador with Compassion Int'l. We have been so blessed and God laid on our hearts to share that blessing.

Our sponsor child's name is Mumba and he lives in Kenya with his mom and dad and brothers and sisters. I was so excited to get our first letter from him in the mail today. He said he wants to grow up to be a doctor and his favorite Bible story is the Prodical Son. He is just precious! Not only are we changing his life but he is changing our lives.
The other exciting thing that came in the mail today may not look very exciting but I am so excited about this. It's called a speed light. It's used on a camera to enhance and manipulate the light. I've been told we will love it and it will really make a difference in the quality of our pictures. I can't wait to start figuring it out.
Ryan's grandparents and uncle Matt are coming in town tomorrow and we are sooooo excited! We can't wait to see them! We have a fun few days planned!
