I haven't been updating or writing and to be honest this blog hasn't been at the forefront of my mind. Life here has been busy, but as my post suggests it has been a time of joy. On June 16th, Rachel gave birth to our beautiful daughter, Annika Claire Roushey. That Saturday the joy continued, Annika came home from the hospital and we were surrounded by family. The joy continued as I was privileged to take part in the wedding of a couple from church and to celebrate my birthday. Sunday I preached again and I had my first, and quite special Father's day. The support of family and friends has been a constant help since Annika's birth. We're now settling into life as a family of three.
