Family Value

Our first day meeting in Japan, January 25, 2012

What Father gave to make us family
Puts the deep-pockets philanthropist to shame
When He reveals the poetry of family
Kings and beggars shut their mouths at the mystery


Today is a little different as far as Warrior Poet Circles go. If you have a poem to add, please do. Today, however, is a very special one for the Stasyszen family as we go to a court hearing at 9 AM Alaska time and Mizuki becomes a permanent part of our clan and grafted into our heritage.

It seems like both a long time coming and also so quick and amazing how God has brought it about. I so appreciate every person here who has prayed with and for us, given financially, and supported in so many ways. We are so blessed to be at this day.

I wanted to share a video that my wife and I made for the occasion. God is faithful and good and we appreciate your being a part of this miracle.
