Tyler and Lara

It's not very often that I get to do a blog post on Tyler and Lara!

In case you don't know, this is our oldest son and his beautiful bride of nine months and they live in downtown Chicago while they're finishing up their degrees at Moody Bible Institute this year.

Oh there are so many things I could say about them! Just looking at their picture here makes my heart so tender...he's my firstborn, and she's my first daughter-in-lawlove!

But what really makes my heart tender is why I'm featuring them on my blog today.

This is a "teaser" from their new blog:

"As we have prayed and sought godly counsel, we have felt a stirring in our hearts to return to the Czech Republic to disciple and equip young leaders in the local church."

There is NOTHING that gives us greater joy than knowing that our children are walking with the Lord and following His plans for their lives! I have literally prayed for this since my kids were born so you can imagine how grateful I am to the Lord for HIS work that has led Tyler and Lara to this point.

They will be coming to Czech this summer to serve as intern leaders with Josiah Venture, and are sharing their journey about that on their blog: We Are Patty's Too.

(The title of their blog just cracks me up!!)

Many of you, at some point over the past 23 years, have prayed for our kids.

Simply said, but with much heart, THANK YOU. This is part of the fruit of those prayers!

Pray for Tyler and Lara, that the Lord will raise up those who will stand with them in joining us here in the ministry this summer.

  1. How very wonderful! I love their blog name. I always run into people who know at least one Patty.
