First of all, thank you to everyone who has been able to take time this holiday season to see us amidst everything you are up to. Thank you to everyone who has helped us set up events to share about Lebanon and hopefully gain some new partners. We have so much hope for our family return because of these essential times of reconnecting with all of you and feeling your love. Thank you for all your prayers, donations, food, hugs, stories, and listening.

We have been rushing around like crazy to see everyone and do as much fundraising as possible before Louis leaves on December 29th to go back to Lebanon. As always, you, our faithful team have been caring for us in so many ways. One thing we have not stopped to share is the details about our upcoming baby. Mostly because we just haven’t had the time, and so we wanted to take time to share with you all we know about this upcoming baby. There are so many things that you all have been asking us, so we want to answer as much as we can, but if you have any questions please leave a comment on the blog or reply in an email and I will happily get back to you. We love you all so much, I put the outline of what will follow so you can skip down to any information you want to know.

It’s A Girl!

Due Date

March 28th, 2015 is the official due date.

Last time our doctor wanted to induce earlier due to Davy’s size and since the healing process took a long time we want to follow any advice in that direction as we get closer, so we are keeping an open mind for the two weeks prior as well. And Louis will be back in time for Valentine’s Day, February 13th he lands in Phoenix, so he will have plenty of time to be here when we have to go to the hospital.


Kyrie Rivkah Liss

Yes, there is a lot of story behind her name that we will share more of in the upcoming months, but we will start with just the definitions of the name. The Kyrie is a liturgical song, it is Greek, meaning Lord have mercy. Rivkah means Rebekah.

Health Insurance

We have health insurance beginning January 1st. We opted to start out with out of pocket so that we could start having doctor’s visits, and the ultrasound since we are already over half way along. Beginning January 1st all three of us will be covered until we are one month away from leaving. Then we will be switching to Good Neighbor Insurance, which specializes in missionary insurance. Once again, there is a lot more information some of you might be interested in, and I am happy to answer any questions. Just shoot me a message.

Liss Contact Information

Whether about any of this information above or anything else we want to stay in touch with all of you, but since getting back we haven’t had a very good way to get our contact information out there. If you do not receive our emails CLICK HERE. We don’t want to post all of our information on our plublic blog, but it will be emailing out with our newsletter.

Coming Soon…

We are working on some business cards and brochures with Horizons which we will be able to offer soon, and would really appreciate if all of you would take a few to share with friends and help get our work out there to some new people who might be interested in coming out to help, or funding our being in Lebanon. As we continue to prepare for baby, we still need to get enough for our monthly pledges in order to be 100% funded when we go back. Our budget will be changing slightly as we reevaluate what we actually need on each line item, and include newer expenses. Stay tuned, and email us if you have any way of helping us with fundraising or just want to know more about how everything works.

Preaching, Open Houses, and Meals Galore
