Guatemala Trip!!!

Jump on a plane and fly south for two hours, then take a bus and head south some more, then ride up the dirt trail into the mountains, and you will arrive at the village of Taguayni.  There you will meet a beautiful group of people who tend coffee plants, pick fruit from orange and lemon trees, and care for their beautiful children.  They are very much like you, with their own questions and ideas and joys and struggles.  The only difference is, they don’t know Jesus. God gave me (Jared) the amazing opportunity to go to Guatemala from April 13th-18th.  I went with five wonderful brothers from...

We weren‚Äôt planning on having him that day but after our ultrasound they recommended inducing do to him and the amniotic fluid not looking as good as the wanted. Since I was already 1 ¬Ĺ weeks overdue, we consented and luckily had brought all our supplies (since Austin is an hour away from our home). This was going to be our first Birthing Center/ Midwife experience which is similar to doing it at home with a midwife. After 30 minutes of active labor and 15 minutes of...

Fall Festival Video

We went to a fun free carnival this fall at a church in Marble Falls. Isaiah had such a good time he¬†didn’t¬†want to leave even though he got a¬†safety¬†pin stuck in his leg. ¬†Jedidiah had his first real horse ride and we were able to enjoy hayrides,¬†carnival¬†games,¬†bouncies, a petting zoo, and horse rides, and more.
