  1. Dear Emily and Jason,

    We are so happy and excited for you! This is such a wonderful opportunity for your family to serve the Lord in one of the poorest countries in this world! We`ll be praying for you! Hope to visit you some day! =)
    Love and blessings from Austria,
    Stef & Julia

  2. I’m so excited for you guys. What an amazing opportunity for you and the kids. May God’s amazing peace overwehlm you during this whole fundraising process. I believe in you and God’s call upon your lives! Yay, Jesus!!!

  3. J.Craig( and Em),

    We are honored to pray for your family as you embark on this new(ish) chapter of your lives. I am sure you are already making great memories and life long friendships as you expand the KOG.
    Please tell me you are drinking goat milk in your picture and not hot tea. I love you bro

  4. WOW,




  5. We love you and miss you – have been praying more specifically for the everyday things – shopping, driving, safety…the “little things” that can give you an anxiety attack 🙂 You’re in His hands… Hope all is well – will be in touch!

  6. Just moved to Lancaster in March and started attending Community Fellowship. We picked up your SIM card at church. Funny thing…Our daughter adopted a child from Addis Ababa. My daughters name is Lauren and her husbands name is Jason.

    • That is hilarious, Linda. I hope you all are enjoying the fellowship of CFC. It is a wonderful place. We appreciate your prayers. And be praying for the many others who are now adopting from Ethiopia. It has just become a much more difficult process full of delays. There are a few folks from CFC in the process right now.
