Bragging about Church

Look, I know there are church-haters out there, people who have been burned and have had all kinds of lame experiences with Christian churches. Well, I'm not going to go into defending the Church or all the millions of reasons why I think it's a great idea to be part of a church family. What I do want to do right now is just completely GUSH and BRAG on how awesome our home church, Oikos, is...

Okay, Oikos family, here it goes. YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST!!!! You are so amazing!!! We Huckabys can't thank you enough for the way you have supported us from the very beginning of this journey that began over two years ago now. We know that you are praying for us and thinking of us. And we know that you support us with your hard-earned cash when you don't have to. And we know that you try to Skype with us even though it's unpredictable and hard to get a hold of us.

Of course I want to give God the glory because we are all loving him and serving him together and he gives us the heart we need to love each other and be there for each other even when we would rather not. Thank you, God, for Oikos church.

And thank YOU, Oikos, for the super RAD Christmas box that came to us today via the Allens' safe return to Lusaka from the States. Whoopee!!!! We were so stoked. All of the presents and cards were such an encouragement. You guys really know what we like and what we need. We really can't thank you enough. The generosity of you people is really off the charts, and I am not just sucking up here. I MEAN IT!!!! It really blows us away.

If you sent us something in the box, and you don't receive a thank you email from us, it means it wasn't labeled in the box. Please don't be offended. Feel free to email us and tell us what you sent so that we can properly thank you. But in the meantime, THANK YOU!!!! And a special thanks to Jess for packing it up right and tight.

This is Tricia, on behalf of the Huckabys
