First time away!

2 weeks ago, Jake surprised me with a trip (without children) to Florida. My all time best bestie, friend for life (seriously) turned 30! This was my very first time away from all 3 children, for an extended period of time! I cried at the thought of leaving my husband and children...I mean balled! But knew they would all be ok with out me for a few days. A big thanks to my MIL for coming and helping.
I arrived in Fort Lauderdale on Friday. Jamie, my BFF and I went to dinner, shopped and watched "The Vow!" Saturday, we went to the beach, all day. I lathered myself with lots of sunscreen. Sunday, we went to church. Jamie and her husband (Phillip) pastor a church called North Star Community, we had bible study later that evening. Monday, I packed to head home and we ate at this amazing burger place before she took me to the airport! It was so sad to say goodbye but I was excited to get home to my family!
I arrived home late Monday evening. The whole house was clean, floors clean, vacuumed, laundry done, flowers on the table and a banner that said "Welcome Home Mommy!"

Now, we're moving into the month of April...One of the businesses months for our family. 2 birthdays, our anniversary, easter, im photographing 2 weddings, a 40th birthday party and a 3 month old!

Very Important Update!

Hello Friends & Family!

We hope all is well. Lacy and I wanted you all to be the first to know that after 10 years of serving as missionaries with the International House of Prayer, we will be transitioning off full-time staff in the next few weeks.

We will be taking a full-time Worship Pastor position at a local church here in Kansas City. We are so excited!!!

Over the last 9 months I (Jake) have been serving on a part-time basis with the church. Just a few weeks ago they approached me about coming on full-time. After much prayer and counsel we have joyfully decided to take the position!

What does this mean?

This means that beginning March 15th we will no longer be raising support and on IHOP staff. We will still be involved and fully supportive of IHOP as we serve the local church here in Kansas City.

We want to take this time to personally thank all of you from the bottom of our hearts for your faithful support to our ministry over the years. We want you to know that your prayers and finances have helped us fulfill our calling as a family thus far and you have truly help launch us into this next season.

What's next?

We are very excited about this next season of our lives and look forward to helping reach Kansas City for Jesus. Please feel free to email us back or call us to hear about this amazing journey.

Lacy will keep updating our blog so you can still keep in touch. www.theferrellfamily3.blogspot.com

Thank you all so much and bless you in the name of Jesus!

Jake, Lacy, Taylor, Kamdyn & Harper

Round #2

We are finally on round #2 of Chicken Pox! Kamy, finally started to show signs on Tuesday. I would have to say that both cases so far, with Tay and Kamy have been light. So, another week of staying home!
A random fact about chicken pox. Once someone has been exposed, It can take up to 3 weeks to even begin to show signs. So, it's hard to pin point where the chicken pox came from. And it takes a week to recover from them once they appear!
