It is with hearts overflowing with joy that we introduce to you the latest addition to our little tribe: Jack Zechariah Keach. He was born 7 pounds 15 ounces, 20 inches, on .
It has been about a month now since Jack was born and things are starting to normalize in the Keach household. Samuel absolutely adores his little brother. He is constantly giving him smooches, wanting to hold him, and even trying to carry him around the house (God help us)!
Lisa is recovering well but still has a little pain in her abdomen and occasionally some bleeding from the surgery. Pray that God heals her up quickly.
Bible Course: On top of all the baby stuff I, Morgan, am leading an inductive bible school this quarter. It is going super well. We have seven students from four different nations (China, South Korea, Fiji, and Australia). We are finding the bible training to be very necessary as we graduate more and more DTS students. A lot of our DTS students are coming to us with very little knowledge of the bible. As people are sticking with us long term, this school has become an effort to train students up in the bible so that as they go out on outreaches they can go more mature, and have a better understanding of God, his word, and his plan of salvation and restoration for all things.
The Ship(s): The Pacific Link is currently sitting in Townsville, Australia waiting for some crew to come and begin preparing her for outreach in September/October. We are currently looking for dental and optical supplies to fill the Pacific Link's cargo holds for upcoming outreach. Hit me up if you can help out.
Australia: The Pacific link is docked in Townsville, Australia currently, as stated above. We are needing people to go over to Australia to prepare the ship for deployment. Brett Curtis, our ministry leader has asked Lisa and I to pray about heading over to Australia for the summer months (Mid July- Mid September) to lead the process if getting the vessel ready. If we go we would be facilitating work teams, interfacing with port authorities, and working alongside YWAM Townsville. To clarify, we would not live on the ship but live at YWAM Townsville, as the Pacific Link isn't suitable for families. We are honored that we were offered this opportunity.Would you please pray with us about whether or not we should go. Let us know if you hear anything.
Lisa and I are super grateful for all of your prayers and support. We realized the other day that we have been doing this for close to five years! We are totally amazed as we look back at all the ways God has provided both miraculously and through people like you. We pray that as you read this you are filled with faith for whatever it is God has called you to.
