I apologize for the lack of updating and update only to say that there will probably not be a good update for another couple weeks. My heart is heavy today...My sister is in labor right now and it feels so wrong to not get to be with her. Next Friday can't come fast enough, I can't wait to meet my nephew! Also, an American man we met during our time in Iraq was killed yesterday by one of his Kurdish students. I'm saddened for our friends there and for his family but hopeful in reading articles and facebook posts about him - he has made such a significant global impact on others through the testimony of his life. As Jim Elliot said before he was martyred in the jungle, "He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot loose". Will you join me in praying for the students at Jeremiah's school and the Kurdish community there?
Baby Bealer pictures to come soon!
