Just a Quick Note

Hey church family, it's been a busy and good week. For instance, Brad and I have taken on the work of cleaning the church each week. I like to have things clean, so I think it is fun and good exercise. But not only that, I think it is worshipful. For me, there is always the temptation to be driven by perfectionism and efficiency, but I regularly try to remember to ask the Lord while I am working to help me do it excellently and faithfully as unto Him. Practicing God's presence in our every day activities really makes the work meaningful and makes us more responsible Christians. So, we got the work of cleaning done again and we feel a sense of accomplishment each week. This week has been busier than some so I will leave it at that, but I want to close by thanking you all again for how you have spoiled us and the Gevers by providing meals and visits after the births of Jayken and Julia.

We love y'all!

-David

Why We are Foster Parents

Amy and I have two children that we love very much, and with those two children, we are quite content. We did not become foster parents because we wanted to have a third child, or a fourth or a fifth. We did it because there are children out there who need safe havens and someone to love them. We did it because I don't believe any child should have to feel like a "Ward of the State", even if technically they are one.

Being a foster parent is hard. It is hard because you see depravity close up and personal, and you see what sin does to the most innocent of us. Already in our short time of fostering, we have taken care of children who were neglected, who were malnourished, who have been sexually abused, and whose own parents have burned them with cigarettes. We have fallen in love with children, and we have had to see them leave our home and our lives. Our children have grown attached to their "brothers" as well, and they cry when they leave. They pray for them to stay. It is often heartbreaking. But I say, without hesitation, that it brings us great joy. It is a privilege to minister to these little ones whose guardian angels behold the face of our Father night and day (Matthew 18:10).

Amy and I have said often said, "After this time, we are going to take a break. It's too hard." And yet, when they call, all we can hear from the DHR worker is, "There is a child who has no home. There is a child who has no one to care for her. Can you help?" A child with no home and no one to love her? Of course we will help! We have done this almost every time when we are able. 

I know many of you are not in a position to do foster care now, but some day, you might be. Would you consider providing a home for one of those children? Would you consider fostering a child in need? You will have the opportunity not only to impact the life of a child, but even the life of the parents sometimes. 

Pray about it and consider it. It is a worthy way to work for the kingdom to receive a child in Jesus' name.

Yours in Christ, 

Bro. Brad
