Johanna is one!

Saturday was Johanna’s first birthday! It is hard to believe she is already one….

We thought about having a big party with all the MCV kids, but we did not want to encourage the already present “princess” problem (how the kids treat her special☺) Luckily, our friend Linda, who has been faithfully serving at MCV and assisting us in various ways, really wanted to do a safari before leaving South Africa. Therefore, we decided Johanna could have a fun, safari birthday! Our sweet girl celebrated with some larger-than-life guests- elephants, hippos, giraffes, zebras, etc! Good thing the guests stayed at a safe distance☺

Pray for us! Johanna started walking the day before her birthday, so she is EVERYWHERE! I thought it was challenging trying to stay on top of all our ministry responsibilities before, but now with a major focus of just keeping her alive, I really need Holy Spirit’s help☺
