Christian Covenant Kruse

As many of you know, our families went through a very tough week with the birth of a still born child. On January 31st, we held a funeral service for this precious child from God. There were many friends and family that came to mourn with us and comfort the Kruse family. On Monday Feb. 2nd there was a burial service for the family to attend. This may have been the hardest time for the Kruses because they finally had to let Christian go. It was also very comforting to know that Christian is in the arms of Jesus. Because of the covenantal promise given to generations, we can have assurance to one day see Christian Kruse all healthy and well, and all our tears will be wiped away. Thank God for that promise!

Winter Wonderland

Yes, we did it...we moved and we are already snowed in! But it is so beautiful. We now have 10 acres and a brand new house. God has indeed blessed us! Here are some pics of our new house-

Katrina, in front of our hill.

This pictures show what is our property, we pretty much own the one side of a hill.

This picture is the view that we get from our patio and the back of our house.

God sure knows how to paint a picture with His creation! What do you think? Come visit us some time :)
