This month of June has been the most amazing month. Not only was it filled with opportunities to see God’s providential hand, but also we were blessed to meet our baby boy Everett Jackson Sears and see him enter this world. We are so enthralled to be parents of such a precious child. Weighing in at just six pounds and ten ounces and being twenty inches long, Everett became the biggest blessing we could ever have asked for. God has blessed us with this amazing bundle of joy, and already we are figuring out just how much there is to being a parent; and he isn’t even a teenager yet.
Everett has brought so much happiness to our family as grandparents and aunts shower him with clothes and toys he doesn’t even know exist yet. It amazes us that God could create something so incredible in just nine short months (though they did not seem all too short while we were experiencing them.) It is a constant reminder that God knows best and that He is taking care of our every need. I now can understand just a taste of what kind of love a father has for his children. My heart is filled with pride and fear every time he cries, and there isn’t a thing in this world I wouldn’t do to see him smile. But God loves us so much more than I can even comprehend, much less express.
We are so excited about this new addition to the Sears crew and are eager to take that Fatherly love to those who need to hear in Iceland. While writing this letter it dawned on me that one of the reasons much of these unbelievable acts are being seen across our nation is because we have far too many homes that are fatherless. I do not mean a home that does not have a dad, but a home that does not know the Father. It has been said that one is five times more likely to go to prison if they grew up in a home without a father. Imagine the repercussions of growing up in a home where no one knew the Father. However, it is not too late to become a child of the Father. Please join me in praying for the largest adoption of children into God’s family this year.
I pray that whoever may be reading this letter have faired well amongst the pandemic that appears to be rearing its head again. God has allowed us to see this virus come close but has spared us from any lasting effects. God is so good to us all the time, and I can never stop praising Him for all that He has allowed me to do and see done in my very short twenty-three years of life.
