It was also a privilege to have Justin dedicated while we were in the states. Baby dedication is something our church does where the parents commit the child to the Lord and publicly promise to raise their child in God's love and teachings. Brian's parents came down to Texas one weekend, so we were able to do it at the church Julie grew up in with both sets of grandparents. :) Of course some extended family was there also!
Brian's dad performed the dedication and beautifully expressed the importance of prayer in our unique family situation, as we are spread across the globe. It was such a blessing to be able to share this time with our family and a church family that greatly supports us.
