Dear Friends and Family

I just wanted to give an update on our journey as we are dealing with the cancer that has has surfaced within our family. Tara had a few more scans today to find out if and how far the cancer has spread. We should get the results Wednesday morning before she starts the chemo treatment. We did have our initial counseling with the doctor and he gave us a little more information: basically, that it is stage 3 carcinoma breast cancer and it is aggressive. Tara will start chemo Wednesday and will have treatments every 2 weeks for 16 weeks. 

We asked that you continue to lift our family in prayer. We have been truly blessed during this time. Of course we have been through a range of emotions the last few weeks but we have felt God's presence with us the whole time. He has never left us or forsaken us. He has spoken to us through all of you with your kind words and prayers of healing and encouragement; through sermons and devotions in powerful personal ways; through help with our finances and insurance; through scripture; and through our doctor at the cancer center that took us by the hand and prayed for us asking God for healing, comfort, direction and wisdom.

Someone had asked Tara if she had gotten a second opinion. She said "yes, my second opinion is from the doctors and the medicine. My first opinion is from Jesus! My identity is in Christ not cancer!"

Tara and I have been called to be missionaries. This is our mission field. Please pray that we continue to share the gospel wherever we go with whomever the Lord puts in front of us so that He may have all the glory! 

Jesus is King!

My beautiful wife got her hair cut in preparation for the chemo and donated it to Locks of Love.
We went to a tree farm last week and Caroline saw a manger scene. She wanted her picture with baby Jesus.
