On April 15, we celebrated our youngest son’s—at that moment anyway—birthday. We had a great time with Nathan, but we kept praying his new brother would wait at least until 12:01 a.m. on the 16th to be born, as we wanted the day to focus on just Nathan. Well, God answered our prayers, for the very next day on April 16, 2015, at 11:34 a.m., Samuel James Williams was born. He weighed 8 pounds 11 ounces and measured 21¾ inches long. Holly and Samuel are doing very well, and she was able to go to a meeting just shy of a week and a half after Samuel was born. Thank you for praying for a healthy and safe delivery. Samuel is a cute little guy and is sleeping great at night.
We are in the midst of the pre-application process to obtain our visas. Right now during this time, we simply wait and make sure our paperwork is all together for our application. Please pray for our visa applications coming up in the next couple of months.
Please pray for the salvation of Nathan and Samuel. Nathan just turned five, and he is beginning to put things together. David and Jonathan got saved around this time, and Nathan is almost there. Raising our boys in church and having them hear the Gospel over and over again has been a joy and blessing. God is working in their hearts and lives. Pray that God continues to lead and direct in their lives as they grow and learn.
1. Health for Holly and Samuel—both are doing well, but pray for continued good adjustments.
2. Our UK visas
3. Support—we need to raise $700 more a month. Praise the Lord for new supporters, but we still need to raise more.
4. Safety as we finish furlough and travels
Thank you for your continued faithfulness and love for our family and the people of England. We are excited to get back home. We are praying for you.
Yours for the souls of England,
Justin, Holly, David, Jonathan, Nathan, and Samuel Williams
