Joshua Blaze Weyel is Here

5c130b62-6933-4da6-82bc-50de03666745_1For all of you who may have at one time been following our Blog, I do wish to apologize once again for our failure to update with all of the changes and progress that our lives have undergone.  As many of you may know, we returned to San Antonio, Texas, from Cambodia (Rachel and the Children in April, Joseph in June) and have returned to a reasonable facsimile of the life that we left behind.  We continue to think often of our friends and loved ones in Siem Reap, Stoung, Kampong Thom, and the various other corners of the far East.  God willing, we hope to return again on many occasions to share in the work that God has begun among his people.

In January of this year (2010) we learned that we were expecting our 5th child, and by God’s grace and mercy, we received that blessing as Joshua Blaze Weyel was born at Methodist Hospital in San Antonio, on September 20, 2010 at 7:36 AM (CST) weighing in at 6 lbs, 6 oz, and 20 inches in length.  Rachel is continuing to recover at home and the rest of the children are helping out and trying to keep their focus on school work, chores and other important tasks at hand.

In other news, Joseph has returned to the role of pastor at Luling Primitive Baptist Church in Luling, Texas, where he preaches each Sunday morning, and continues to lead Sunday evening Bible study sessions in our neighborhood fellowship,

Beginning next Tuesday, October 12, 2010, Joseph and a few other ministers will be preaching on a regular basis at the Shiloh Primitive Baptist Church meeting house near Seguin, Texas.  This church ceased regular meetings in June of 2008, and this new outreach is an attempt to re-introduce the doctrines of Sovereign grace to this community. Please join us in prayer for this effort.
