Update on Adeline's Knot

Many of you know that Adeline was born with a small knot on her head just above her left eye (see picture below). Today we took her to a plastic surgeon in Jackson to have it evaluated. It appears that she has Osteoma, which is a small benign bone growth. She’ll have a CT Scan on July 26th. This will help Dr. Angel determine what course of action needs to take place. We expect that it will eventually need to be removed. The only question is when. We would appreciate your prayers on Adeline's behalf.

GA 2005

We just returned from our first General Assembly (GA). It was a very encouraging time seeing old friends and making new ones. I didn’t expect the PCA to be so monolithic (mid to upper class anglos), but despite our homogeneity I was encouraged to hear that we are still in the top five of the fastest growing denominations in America. And many of our recent church plants are multiethnic.

Ga 2005 GA Prayer Sinclair

The Sunday before GA, we were privileged to attend Scott Pierce’s installation service in Jasper, AL. Then on Monday, we took the girls to the Tennessee Aquarium in Chattanooga. Abigail and I tried the IMAX, but when the shark appeared in 3D she nearly jumped out of her seat. We had to leave the theater immediately. Here is a picture of the girls playing in the fountain outside the Aquarium...


At GA we made many good contacts for funding raising. Presently, we are at 61% of our needed funds. Please continue to pray that God will connect us with those churches and individuals He is calling to partner with us.
