Three years ago today, Emily went home to be with Jesus. We woke up today to this painting outside our bedroom door.Ilana Poole (who had just got back from ministering with Megan in Thailand) painted it. The words say . . .
We wait in hope for the Lord.
He is our help and our shield; in Him our hearts rejoice
for we trust in His holy name.
May your unfailing love be with us,
Lord, even as we put our hope in you.

From Mindi: "I just wanted to tell you a quick story. I have been assigned an Exceptional Student Education (ESE) music class this year, which threw me off at first, but now I have come to love it. One of my students reminds me of sweet Emily, and I was reminded so much of her today. We are learning about holidays around the world and their music, and today was Germany. We made Christmas tree ornaments out of beads and the student had such a fascination with the beads that I couldn't help but get a little teary as I thought of the days I used to teach Emily in the upstairs of White Chapel. Thank you for sharing your daughter with me. The lessons that she taught me are carrying on through today!"
