1. The Lord blessed us with a precious girl: Genevieve Kay Ellis. She was born on July 12, 2017 and weighed 10 pounds! Malisa and I love seeing her smiling face in the morning, and her two older sisters, Sydney and Eliza are doing a great job caring for her – even as they experience their own Copernican revolutions.


2. The Lord blessed us with a house for ministry. This means that for the long run, we get to stay close to college students in Boston. You know what an influence students in Boston will have after they Graduate. And you know that they need the Lord. We moved into 87 Stowecroft Rd. almost 3 weeks ago. The house is just 1.5 miles from our old apartment and we’re excited to see how God uses it.


3. This Lord cares about Lost students. That’s why we’re getting our team ready to reach out to all the freshmen in this city in the coming weeks. Here’s a picture of me with a bunch of student leaders on my family’s schooner. Will you pray for divine appointments on campus this week?

Tomorrow afternoon, I’ll be helping my friend Darin and some great student leaders on the Lacrosse Team as they meet to share their testimonies with the whole team. I’m excited for opportunities to share with them and other new students about Jesus. Would you pray for us and for these conversations?

We can’t do it alone. Malisa, I, and the whole team we help lead are depending on the Lord. Your prayers and support are needed as we raise Genevieve and her sisters Sydney and Eliza. Your prayers and support are needed to continue to live in this amazing ministry house and to stay close to college students. And your prayers are absolutely essential as we reach out to students and help them start following Jesus. We can’t change lives. Only God can. But your prayers are effective.

Loving our Adventurous Lord,
