Happy New Year from New Zealand…
We are very excited to share the news that we are expecting another Weaver to join our team! Baby Weaver is due on the 4th of July 2018! We feel so thankful and blessed that the Lord is giving us the privilege of becoming parents and entrusting us with the life of a child. We have had an ultrasound and all is looking good (see picture below). This news has given us a lot to think and pray about, particularly as we decide where it will be best to have the baby. Please pray for us as we make these decisions- there are many factors involved. Please also pray God will ready us for this new blessing and challenge of becoming parents.
We are also very happy to say that Jonathan has been advised he has passed his Masters Degree! (Though this is still pending final approval from the Open University in the UK).
We were blessed to go on a short holiday to the South Island of New Zealand, where we hiked in National Parks, had a boat ride in some fiords (where we saw dolphins, penguins and seals), and saw beautiful lakes, rivers and many glaciers. The weather was lovely and warm and we were both very grateful to enjoy the Lord’s wonderful creations in places neither of us had visited before. It has also been great so far to spend quality time with our friends and family in NZ.
We Depart NZ for Zambia on January 24th.
NZ Missions Update and Goodbye Event
It has been great to catch up with many of our NZ supporters and we would love to personally say goodbye, and update more comprehensively about what we’ve been up to and what’s next.
