we were delighted to share with you
but our lives as well. (1 Thess. 2:8)
Joshua– An 8th grader now, Joshua is growing in stature and character. He has well surpassed me in height and Jim in shoe size! Basketball is his favorite sport to play, with football being a close second. He is even considering playing baseball in the spring. Joshua and Jim served the Lord together again this summer in North Philly through Mission Philly 2013 with our junior high youth group. We are very thankful they could serve the Lord in this way shoulder to shoulder. Joshua participated in Raise the Praise week again this summer and was asked to serve in the youth group worship team doing vocals. Joshua is not a spotlight kind of person, so being on stage stretches him out of his comfort zone. Still, he remains very excited and thankful for this opportunity to serve. His favorite thing to do with any free moments is shoot hoops. While doing very well in school, his first loves are anything to do with a ball or with music. Joshua is innately thoughtful and helpful, and we are proud of our young man.
