We don’t do this often, but you are like family to us, and I just love sharing good news here in our family.
Earlier this week we congratulated Payton Jones on his new book Church Plantology, and today, we have exciting news about three other TTW team members!
Noah and Daisy – Graduation Caps and Baby Clothes!
Noah Short completed his bachelor’s degree in business analytics at Grand Canyon University and celebrated his graduation this week. Noah is our production manager and data analyst here at TTW. Fantastic team member – and he also happens to be my son-in-law. This brings me to our next team member news – Noah’s wife – my daughter – Daisy Short – also graduated from GCU with her bachelor’s in music and worship arts – from the theology department. She actually finished back in 2020 – and finally got her graduation ceremony this week!
I know there are lots more of you students out there graduating in the next couple of months. Congrats to all of you – along with Noah and Daisy.
Daisy worked as an audio editor for us and also at our customer relations desk but is taking a break from all of that because–news number three–Noah and Daisy are having a baby! Their first–and my first grandchild–is due this summer. I can’t even tell you how excited we are. Huge congrats on double graduation and on the baby. So awesome. So much good news.
Kaleb – Leaving on a Jet Plane – to Kenya!
This news comes from my son, Kaleb Langham. Now, just to clarify, most of our team members are not my kids, but Kaleb was in fact our very first paid employee here when we first launched. I paid him to post to our website every day. He was 11 at the time and since then, he has worked a variety of jobs for us, currently editing our audio guides. Well, Kaleb is in college now at Bethany Global University – studying theology and intercultural studies. Bethany Global is a missions preparation program, and Kaleb has heard God’s call to a lifetime dedicated to mission. Now his news is his next big step in his road of preparation: a 16-month Global Internship program beginning this fall. He will be serving the Lord at a mission base in Kenya, where he will have the opportunity to work alongside and learn from long-term missionaries, study the local language and culture, work with local ministries and do outreach, continue taking college courses online, and train in team development.
So please pray for Kaleb as he takes his next steps of faith to serve God overseas. For more information about his mission and how you can support him, click here or reach out to him at Kaleb@throughtheword.org.
Thant’s it for the TTW Team Member Update! Let us know what YOU are celebrating in your family!
