Here are a few pics from our Christmas in California, which we enjoyed thoroughly :)
A "First Christmas as a Married Couple" Pic
This is kind of a family inside joke, but anyway, the guys all sported their new pj bottoms with A shirts that my dad bought for all of them...pretty hilarious...
Needless to say, we had an awesome holiday. After enjoying Christmas with my family, my Mom and Dad hosted a "West Coast Reception" on Dec. 29th for Jake and I. Many of the significant people that I grew up with and have been an example to me in my life were there, and it was extremely meaningful. Their was a lot of creative touches that Mom and Dad put in that made it so sweet. We had a great time!
We also got to spend some time on the beach and sledding in the local mountains. Gotta pack in the fun! :D
This is what the coming year holds for the Hatfields (as we know so far):
- Becky raising her support and going onto the full time staff at Uplands Reach Conference Center this summer
- Jake working as a server at Ruby Tuesdays and finishing his bachelor's degree in May. Woohoo!
- Becky starting a small group Bible study for High School age girls in the community
- Moving to Raleigh, NC in August and Jake starting seminary at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary
We are so excited for what God has in store for this coming year (many surprises we're sure!). Your prayers are coveted as we launch into a new year of ministry and training for what lies ahead.
We're so thankful for all of you, friends! May God reveal himself to you in a fresh way this year.
