For all of you who have wondered where we ever came up with such unique middle names for our two boys…Well here you go… In 2004 I took a short term missionary trip to Nigeria, Africa….There I (and four other Americans) worked along side 12 Nigerian missionaries on several building projects for EYN (Church of the Brethren in Nigeria).
And this is Musa and his family…Musa was the housing manager and was very underappreciated ofr the work he did, but he never complained and had a willing servants heart…He too had this smile on his face continually and love his family lots…Since I have been home he has welcomed two more children into his family… Bisha was born in 2004 in Dec. and Lisa was born 12 days before Jairus…Yes you read that right… I was honored when i recieved the news that this wonderful friend in Chirst named his daughter after me. I was more in awe of God that our little Musa was born so close to his Lisa. God has an amazing way of affirming to us his will and love for us.
So there you have, what you might have thought of as strange middle names are actually very meaningful names for me.
Have an awesome God blessed week….
