This is my Youth Pastor, Gregg. And yes, He is riding a child’s bike.
And this is his wife Tamra. (Note, we do not usually dress like this. It was 80’s gym night at camp)
And this is their precious little boy, Eli 🙂
And, God-willing, there’s going to be a new addition to the Gober family! Here’s what Gregg has to say about it!“Hey everyone! I wanted to let you in on a little of what God is doing in Tam and I’s life. We are scared, excited and we are trusting the Lord.
Last summer the Lord really impressed on our hearts that we are suppose to adopt a child. He revealed it to us separately at first and then as we both came to each other with our convictions on the subject we were ecstatic to find out our hearts were united. There are only a few things we know for sure: 1. We feel we are supposed to adopt a girl from a country where girls are not really regarded very highly in their society, and 2. We feel specifically led to adopt her from a country where there is very little access to the gospel.
Of course our flesh immediately sees obstacles and a few concerns but we know ultimately that the Lord is in control of those things.
Well as I was praying about how we were going to come up with the money for this adoption the thought occurred to me that I could write a song and whoever wanted to contribute could go on iTunes and buy it for a dollar. All the proceeds would go to fund the adoption. I would call it “Ellie’s Song.” So I prayed that the Lord would give me some lyrics and I really feel that He did. With the help of my brother, we have finished recording it and “Ellie’s Song” should go on sale (if everything works out as planned ((and it rarely does))) sometime at the end of this week or beginning of next. I am putting three other original songs on there as well in case you feel the Lord impressing on you to contribute $4 instead of $1, but anything and everything helps. I hope you will partner with us in bringing Ellie home and together with the Lord we will TRULY write “Ellie’s Song.”I will keep you all updated on when the song actually hits iTunes. Please pray for us. In fact would you please take the time right now and say a prayer for us, we would greatly appreciate it. To God be the glory.”
All four of his songs are up on iTunes, and they are AMAZING!! Go buy them! NOW!! Haha and there is also a group on Facebook that Gregg created, called “Ellie’s Song,” where they will be posting updates!!
As a youth group, we are all very excited for them, and cannot wait to meet her!! Please keep them in your prayers!!Ellie, I cannot wait to meet you. I know God has an amazing family picked out for you, and you’ll be a huge blessing to them too. We’re praying for you, and our love for you builds every day. Know that God has a plan for you through all you struggle with. I cannot wait to see your precious face, and hear your beautiful laugh. Keep believing♥
