The Motsingers are good friends from our time in Corpus Christi, TX. We have been repeatedly blessed by their faithful friendship to our family. Not only are they good friends, but they live as an example to many by their compassion and service to others. They have two sons from Ethiopia who are blessed to have these two capable Christian parents. As I watched them serve their children, I could not help but think about how blessed those kids are to have the parents God has given them. I am confident that Jon and Joy are the perfect parents for Seth and Oliver. I am challenged by the idea of adoption, how it is a symbol of God’s love for us, and I am blessed by how the Motsinger family is living this reality. I also am encouraged by their generosity to support us by visiting us in San Jose. I know it was both a blessing and a sacrifice for them to come, and again it reminds me of how it so often works out like that in the kingdom of God. Thanks for coming Jon, Joy, Seth, and Oliver!
