“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing!When they are in the U.S., their home is a welcoming place where many friends, ministry partners and family come together. Hospitality is one of their love languages. Their horizons have just been expanded since God chose to grow their family through the adoption of their adorable newborn daughter, Gabriela Faith.
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland.”Isaiah 43:18 - 19
