For a kid, or anyone really, having a birthday just weeks after moving to a new place can be a bit depressing. Should you have a party? If you do, who will you invite? Who knows you well enough to truly celebrate that you were born? What will you do in this new place? Well, we’ve lived in Kijabe for less than 3 weeks now and I can honestly say, this was one of Natalie’s best birthdays ever. The Lord has already blessed Natalie and our entire family with some incredible friendships that have really taken root since arriving at Kijabe. Our new friends were happy to celebrate our daughter’s life with us. Natalie got to open her gifts from grandparents via FaceTime and had phone calls from around the world singing her happy birthday. It was a special day for our amazing girl. We are blessed indeed!
“Praise the LORD, all nations! Extol him, all peoples! For great is his steadfast love toward us, and the faithfulness of the LORD endures forever. Praise the LORD!” Psalm 117
