Hey Everyone we hope you have an amazing Independence Day. Our family has had a great summer traveling around the US and seeing many of you in the process. We had the chance to visit Kansas City several weeks ago and see Ashley's family. Then the following week we traveled to New Mexico and saw family and supporters. To top it all off last week we hosted the US Church Planting Conference here in Portland. We had over 70 church planters from around the US converge on Portland and spend a week sharing and sharpening one another. It was a great week. Things at church are going really well we have seen several families come to know Jesus recently and we are busting at the seems in our children's ministry. We are in the process of converting one of our rooms into another kids room. The next few weeks Ashley and I are going to be tag team preaching a series called "Fearless". We are going to be speaking on what it means to live a bold radical life for Jesus these days. We are also ramping up as a church for our training school. We are going to be starting a school that trains and sends missionaries overseas. Ashley and I will start that school in January. And lastly, if we weren't busy enough our church is going to be taking a church wide mission trip to LA at the end of August. Please pray for us in these endeavors, we want nothing more than Jesus' name to be lifted up in every area of ministry. Thanks so much for praying for us and for True. He is doing amazing, really coming alive, close to walking and talking a whole lot. As for Ashley's pregnancy she is doing amazing. We really are excited about our new girl that is coming. Please continue to pray for Ashley during the pregnancy and for our little girl that she would be a healthy amazing woman of God. We love you all dearly. Thanks for always keeping us in your prayers.
