Seven months and six days ago, Elissa and I were happily married. Since then, we have greatly enjoyed setting up our new home. Between my work and Elissa’s upkeep around the home, the time has flown by. Our favorite time of the day is when we relax on our living room couch and open God’s Word. It is exciting to see how our love has grown over these past months as we draw closer to each other and to the Lord.
You probably wanted to know all of that information. Well, the reason for this blog post is to answer the question that you wanted to ask: we are expecting a child in October and are very excited about it. We believe that children are a blessing from the Lord, and we couldn’t be more overjoyed to welcome this little one into our family, and as many more as the Lord chooses to give us.
We covet your prayers as we travel this new (for us) and amazing journey. Elissa is now over the worst of her morning sickness, which is a blessing.
In Christ Jesus,
Joseph and Elissa
“But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood,
an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew
forth the praises of him who hath called you out
of darkness into his marvellous light.”
1 Peter 2:9
