Hello dear friends and family,
We are still very much alive here in Romania and we have the best news we could possibly share with you! Ruth and I are going to have a baby! We have been wanting to share this news for awhile now but thought it safe to wait a little to share the good news. Ruth and the baby are doing very well and we are now almost 14 weeks(three months) into this exciting time. We couldn’t be happier with this huge gift that God has given us. We wont know if we’re having a boy or a girl until sometime in June. I think both Ruth and I would love to have a little baby girl but really we are happy with whatever God has given us. The doctor said the due date is November 15th -21st. So with this good news we ask for your prayers as we enter this new and exciting time!
In other news we are ramping up to be busy with Spring/ Summer activities.
- This next weekend we are having a missionary/ministry/pastors and their wives conference which we are all really looking forward to. It will be a refreshing time together with some of the other missionaries here in Romania. We’ll be hosting this in Ciorani so we are in the midst of getting everything in order for that. Pray that this weekend would be a great encouragement for all of us.
- We are also going to start our visa renewal so we can turn that in by June 7th which is never fun, but it’s crazy to think we’ve been here for 2 years now…
- After this, in June we will be concentrating our time and brain power to get ready for our Kids Outreaches. For the last two years these have gone really well and we have a lot of kids come to them. Pray that the Lord would guide us in preparing for these events and that these kids would come to know their God and Creator.
- Then in Mid- July a small group of us are going to be heading to a youth conference that Calvary Chapel Hanover is hosting in Austria. They have invited us to come and have asked for me to share with the youth about the Attributes of God. Please keep this in your prayers and especially pray for me as I prepare for this.
For all your prayers and support throughout these past two years, we thank you. We are excited to see where the Lord is going to lead us as a new family. Please send us an email or message anytime as we would love to hear from you!
Aden, Ruth, and Baby Knepper
