Vince and Alisa, as I was viewing
"My Montage 1/9/09" video, I thought,

"What a magnificent testimony of how God delivers!"
I was especially touched by seeing the pictures of each of you signing the acceptance letter...what a milestone moment of love and commitment. I've witnessed a neat journey that you two have taken thus far, endurance demonstrated, and fulfillment that our Lord enables through His sovereignty, grace, and compassion.
Micah Yoseph Martin is beautiful! May Micah grow up to be prosperous for God.

Love,
Chang
