Our lovely Chinese “daughter” was baptized yesterday! We are so happy to welcome you into our Christian family, Rosalind!! ❤🙏
On Saturday, April 20, we had our baby gender reveal party. We, along with some close friends, gathered on HU campus to celebrate and take pictures.

THANK YOU, LORD! ❤🙏
We have major news to share! We will become parents!! Tati is in her 9th week starting today and the baby is due early November. We are so happy and thankful to God for this amazing blessing! 🙏😊❤
Maikon has been taking his Bible electives in Missions pretty much since he started at Harding in 2016. Recent changes in the BMIN Program have allowed students to switch Bible majors if they so wish to. Maikon has taken advantage of this and switched to a BA in Bible and Missions.
Today Maikon attended Harding University’s Preachers Conference. The theme was “Preaching (The Rest Of) Revelation and the speakers were Dr. Kevin Youngblood and Dr. Devin Swindle.
This weekend Tati and I served as chaperones for Cloverdale’s teen-led youth retreat. This year’s theme was “Stained Glass” and the teens did an awesome job organizing everything. The lessons and the speakers that they chose were really good.
On Friday and Saturday (Jan 25 and 26) we attended two Missions Advisory meetings at Harding University. Tati and I got to make good and valuable contacts for possible future supporters. One of these contacts was brother Donald Collins from Hot Springs Village, AR. He attended the event and wanted to meet us and learn more about our plans for South Florida.
This weekend we took Cloverdale’s Youth group to Branson, MO. Teen Leadership Conference (TLC) is a retreat organized by several churches in Searcy and other neighboring towns. This year’s theme was “Worthy” and the teens participated in lessons and activities that were meant to help them develop leadership skills.
