Losing Hope?

No, our baby Hope is not lost… and we are praying that the challenges being faced right now will lead us not to despair and lose hope in God’s promises but will indeed produce the perseverance, character and ultimate hope in God’s sovereign love and plan for this family and ministry…

Here’s our update on family life and ministry. We are thankful for your love and partnership in this adventure as we continue to journey on… further up… further in…

In this newsletter… a quick recap if you read nothing else.

  1. Seven Iverson kids ranging from 11th grade down to Kindergarten started school. Check out first day of school pics for each of our precious offspring and learn a bit more about their exciting lives. It’s sort of surreal sometimes as they load up each morning in DJ’s seven seater car and drive away… our babies are growing up.

  2. Kimberly launches her new coaching business… Yes, this mom of nine has continued to have impact on so many women in her one-on-one holistic life coaching that we went ahead and made it official. With inflation and growing family expenses, we also needed another income stream to help ends meet. Kimberly’s passion to come alongside women to help them move towards their goals is a career path that also allows for a work life balance amidst the busyness of keeping our very active household functioning..

  3. Summer Program Recap! Our summer program grew from 50 kids last year to 140 this past summer… serving youth on both the Westside and Eastside of Atlanta with 8 weeks of fun and gospel centered programming. Learn more about what God did this summer. We are so grateful for his provision and the powerful work of His Spirit in the lives of this next generation.

  4. Ministry Challenges… If there were not any, we would be questioning our threat level to the kingdom of darkness… Yes, these challenges are very real and we covet your prayers. We need to know we are not alone in these battles being faced each day… from one of our locations getting shut down, delayed grants, vehicle problems and just overall spiritual attack against our team… the war is real… the battles to keep our head, trust God’s plan, and not give up are daily… the faith and longing for Jesus to show his healing and restorative power is all we are holding onto. Join us in this fight.

Enjoy! We pray this report will encourage and challenge you on your journey as well.

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13

Seven kids in school?

We love Providence Christian Academy and are so grateful for scholarships, Georgia Goal funds, and the gifts of so many that have been a source of provision so that our kids can all be at one school and we can streamline our lives and invest in one learning community. Even at a Christian school we have a found a great mission field and God has opened up many opportunities for friendships and discipleship. God has been so good, and yet again we have another school year ahead of us promising lots of learning and growth as Christ conforms us all more to His image.
