"For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being ROOTED and grounded in LOVE, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the LOVE of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen."

~Ephesians 3:14-21

in the uttermost parts of the sea, 
even there your hand shall lead me, 
and your right hand shall hold me.

Meet Our Newest Addition: Solomon Colorado Heath


Our son, Solomon "Colorado" Heath, has finally arrived! We are so happy today - thanking God for this precious miracle that came into the world this morning at 5:15 a.m. (weighing almost 8 pounds - 19.25 inches long). His brothers and sister were so excited to LOVE on him - as they each held him for the first time. He is named after King David's son in the Bible - Solomon- as we thank God every day for ALL the love and grace that He has shown us....and for forgiving us for all of our many sins. His LOVE amazes us each and every day and our prayer as parents is that He will give us wisdom, as he gave Solomon, to raise our children and follow Him all the days of our lives. Lord, please continue to teach and show us to trust in the words that you gave Solomon in Proverbs 3:5-6, as he tells us to "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths."

We are filled with joy to now have our baby Colorado. We love this beautiful state and are naming him after our aunts ~ Cathy Mahaffey- (Crissy's aunt) & Linda Desmond Bourke (Sean's aunt) who have given us a HUGE LOVE for this beautiful part of the country! We have so many wonderful memories with our aunts and our own children over the years - and for this we are so grateful! Thank you all for all the many prayers, encouragement & love that you have given our family as we delivered our first baby here in Peru!

Love~ The Heath Family

The Alameda Students





Black = Sin
The black bead reminds us of our sin which separates us from God and dooms us to eternal darkness. Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (see also Ephesians 2:11-13)

Red = Christ’s blood
The red bead symbolizes Christ’s’ blood shed for you and me. Romans 5:8-9 “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us...we have been justified by his blood...”

White = Prayer of Repentance For Cleansing
The white bead represents the cleansing that occurs when a sinner repents and turns to God. Psalm 51:1-2 “Have mercy on me, Oh God, according to your unfailing love; according to your great compassion blot out my transgressions. Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin.”

Blue = Water/Spirit Baptism
The blue bead represents baptism. Ephesians 4:5 “...one Lord, one faith, one baptism.” We are baptized with water to identify ourselves with Jesus. The Holy Spirit baptizes those who trust in Jesus and takes up residence in the believers heart. If anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Christ. Romans 8:9

Green = Christian Growth
The green bead represents growth in our faith. Colossians 1:10 “And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God...”

Gold = Eternal life
The gold bead represents eternal life with Jesus in Heaven. John 3:16 “ For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
