Twins! Congratulations to Geoffrey and Melody.

This was a scene at Geoff and Melody’s house just a few weeks ago. You can only see four people on that couch… but there were, in fact, six people on that couch. Two of them weren’t quite ready to be born.

But now, they’re here. The twins have been born!

I’ve been through a lot with these two since we first met during freshman orientation at Seattle Pacific University in 1989. The adventures they’ve had, the courage they’ve shown, the love they lavish upon each other and their children… they are one of the great testimonies of God’s faithfulness in my life. I am so grateful for them. And this is just the beginning of even greater adventures.

Congratulations, my friends. May God bless this time, and all of the exciting years ahead of you.

    Shia LeBeouf is a good actor. I’ve followed his career since he was on The Disney Channel’s Even Stevens. He’s definitely one to watch.
