"This year will be a year of healing." -God's words to Brandon before coming
Before we got to Mexico, not only did God speak directly to Brandon, but also through other believers. He spoke a prophecy over Brandon that this year would be a year of healing.
As many of you know Brandon's battle with Lyme disease seems to linger… But just this month Brandon was awoken from a dream that urged him to pray for spiritual healing in a very specific way.
After 2 hours of intense prayer, Brandon's countenance changed and we were sure that healing had taken place. A healing that has been long-awaited. No all symptoms are not completely gone, there is a freedom and liberty, energy and joy that once was lost but now is found! This has been evidenced through his returned and renewed passion for teaching PE, and the hours of time spent playing with kids, without exhaustion, or pain.
A FUN BIRTHDAY WITH THE FANTASTIC FOUR:
Thanks to God we had an opportunity to celebrate the young man's birthday from the family of four that we have been connecting with here at the Mission. To celebrate we took a trip to Ensenada to a trampoline place where we had an amazing time jumping bouncing and playing with all four kids. The family made it beautiful memories together and connected in amazing ways. We also took them to a natural wonder called La Bufadora. As each wave crashes against the rock it sends water shooting hundreds of feet high in a spectacular show of Gods mighty wonder and creativity. It was very exciting to see the excitement of awe on each of their faces.
ASKING FOR ANGIE'S HAND IN MARRIAGE:
We received another visit from our daughter, grandson, and future son-in-law. During this visit our future son-in-law asked for Brandon's blessing to take Angie's hand in marriage. Although not blood related, both God and Angie have allowed us to have such a position of honor in her life as parents and we are so blessed to continue in this manner. So after a couple hours of questions and conversation, Brandon gave our blessing. We are looking forward to wedding bells.
