I know who is ready for Sunday!

Joseph Brooks Hanna was born on May 29, 2003 just after midnight. Curt and I still claim his entrance into the world to be the most exciting, unusual and amazing nights of our lives. His appearance wasn't graceful or easy, more like quick and painful (we love him no matter what!!!). I guess his birth is sort of like life, unexpected and messy! (we will save that for another blog) Named for his uncles, Brooks or JB, whatever you call him, is a child unlike any other that's for sure. He is so inquisitive, asking questions about everything, discussing things on a level way above his age and so very smart! He adores bugs, baseball, reading, reading and more reading, playing in the dirt and of course video games. In these 8 years we have had with him we have experienced joy, pain, love, tears and a pride unlike any other. I am so proud of my son, there is a joy I have that words cannot explain. Daddy and I are praying HUGE prayers for you little boy, prayers that God will grab your heart and take you on an incredible adventure as you follow HIS path. You are our joy, happy 8th birthday sweet boy!

5k Run for Children: ORPHANS

WOW, I have been so busy. After the amazing race weekend, we are now gearing up for our yard sale this weekend! We are so thankful to all of our friends and family who have been so amazing during this time of fundraising. The support from the town of Abbeville, words cannot express our joy!!!! God has blessed us so much and we only want to follow Him and bring glory to His name is all that we do. We were able to raise $3,700 toward our adoption! WHOOHOO!
We are well on our way to meeting that sweet siberian princess! We want her home and safe!

Another Reason Why We Do What We Do

Today we had baptism! When people meet Jesus, our crew goes WILD! The Oasis morning began a little differently today, we had a super guest speaker who is no stranger at all to us at OC Greenwood. Brooks Reames brought the WORD this morning, his first time ever, and did an amazing job. God is bringing such amazing people together at Oasis and I am so happy to be a part of it all. Not only did we witness two baptisms today, but we also had a first time guest accept Jesus as her Savior this morning! I am so excited and cannot wait for next is going to be amazing!!!!
