Simple papa love!

I love this- thought I would share it!  Dada and Luke!

Update for November

This may be a repeat for some!  Thanks for putting up with that!

Hi sweet friends and family!  Here we are on day 20 with our new baby Luke Robert!  He was born Oct 5th , 8 lbs 1 oz, 21 inches long, healthy and strong.  We are instantly in love- he is very addictive! As Analise says- "oh mama- i have the heebie jeebies"  , "why" I ask and she responds "because Luke is so cute I can't get enough of him."  It's so true- we can't get enough of him! Thank you for your prayers and love sent our way!    

We are getting very excited to head back to MalawiAfrica in about 2 months from now.  As we get back to serving at African Bible College, we will have 2 full classes- the freshman and sophmore classes to get to know.   That is over 180 students.  Each one has an amazing story and what a treat we get to hear and be apart of that.  As of now we are planning for our over 37 hour plane ride.  Oh yippee!  That will be interesting as we are adding Luke to the picture.  :) We would love your prayers in that.  As of now, we plan to leave at the end of December.  

Prayer Requests for the Month of November-
 - We have shots and paperwork to do before we head back to Africa!  One of those hurts and the other is time consuming!  That we      would get it all done.
- We are in the process of buying tickets.  God would provide the funds - as it is over $4000.00 to fly back to Malawi - so not cheap
- We are working on our visa to be missionaries in Malawi and that all will go well with that
- We would find Jesus real every day and that our family would be intentional in all that we do.

We are so thankful for-
-We have been so healthy and that we now have Luke joining us!
-We have had amazing family time and feel very refreshed
-We have seen God be faithful in so many areas of our lives!  We are growing, being challenged, and shaped daily!  

Thank you for being apart of our lives!  We are so grateful for this journey called life!  
Love- all of us - Bob, Amy, Nya, Analisey, and Luke!

P.S. I attached pictures of Luke and the girls- I took the one of Luke yesterday!  Sugar Bear!

A couple of videos of Luke!

He is growing so fast!  So this is for the baby lovers and grandmas!

Here he is working on something!

We are so blessed to have him!  We are waiting for his birth certificate so we can get his passport.  The next step to Africa!  We have about 74 days until we head back over there!  Thanks for loving and praying for us!
Love- the stauffy crew!
