It has certainly been a packed month for the Christiansen clan. The shortest month of the year has been our busiest month so far for meetings. We have had a meeting every Sunday except one, due to a sudden ice storm, and every Wednesday for the entire month of February. Fortunately for us, all of these meetings were in a single region. We have been in the state of Washington and northern Oregon. It has been great getting to know some wonderful churches in this area.
Well, Emily and I entered into a new phase of parenting a few weeks ago when Emma started crawling. She started slowly and pretty hesitantly at first, but now she takes off like a bolt. Emma is such a nosy . . . I mean . . . delightfully curious baby. 😊 She loves to dart across the room and explore whenever she sees anything new. However, it has been even more “fun” keeping certain items out of her reach, things like power cords, electric sockets, and random balls of lint and hair that she finds on the floor—and, of course, all these things go straight into her mouth. All joking aside, we have loved seeing her grow, and it is awesome watching her crawl around.
For those who prayed last month that the Holmes family could return to Nigeria, God answered your prayers. God miraculously cleared the obstacles out of their way, and they were able to return to the field shortly after our January prayer letter was sent out.
We are almost to 50% of our support! Thank you to everyone who has been praying with us that our support would increase. God has been so good to us. We are hoping, working, and praying to get to Nigeria by December of this year. Please pray with us that this goal will become a reality.
That all the world may know,
