Dear Family & Friends,
With grateful hearts we thank you for your continued support and prayers for our ministry with GoodSeed. From Les' pregnancy to adjustments in our roles at GoodSeed and finally a very eventful delivery, this has been a big year for our family.
Addison Avery McCulley
Our daughter Addison was born Oct. 5th and what a wonderful day it was to finally hold her in our arms. In agreement with the Psalmist, we can truly say "children are a gift from the Lord!" This first month has held so many new experiences as we have only begun to learn how to care for our little one. How exciting it is to see each new expression on her face and hear her sweet little sounds. Please pray for us as parents, that the Lord may grant us wisdom and understanding as we seek to raise Addison in a manner pleasing to Him. Also pray that Addison may come to know Christ at an early age.
Adjusted Roles at GoodSeed
In addition to our new roles as parents, we have also experienced some adjustments to how Les and I function within the ministry of GoodSeed. At this time Leslie is focusing on the joy and privilege of full-time motherhood as well as occasionally consulting other GoodSeed members in the areas of office management and bookkeeping.
My role within GoodSeed has expanded in quite a few ways over the past 6 months. In an effort to pull the creative direction of the organization together, I have been asked to function alongside John Cross in the role of Art Director. This decision includes the continued focus on web design & teaching but also leads to an increased involvement in the areas of team and project management, as well as print design and production. Please pray for my ability to learn the skills needed to manage wisely and to work with a team that is located in different countries.
I have quite a few projects that are currently in the works. Please pray for me in the following:
We look forward to sharing with you in these next few months how the Lord is using our family and GoodSeed to equip believers in sharing His Story to peoples around the world. Along with your support we are able to "stand firm in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel." (Phil 1:27)
Married in 2000, we are proud parents of Addison, Ayden & Emryn. Originally from Texas, we moved to Canada for five years of mission service and have now made Denver our home.
When JD isn't hanging out with his awesome family, he keeps busy with nerdy web stuff and photography. Les feels privileged to be a stay at home mom ~ a very rewarding & entertaining way to spend each day!
