What a beautiful young lady of God she has become! Annalise continues to fulfill her desire to be a missionary to the least of these, right here on American soil, while ministering to mamas outside of abortion centers! She has been able to attend the joyful  baby showers of mamas who have chosen Life, as well as introduce other friends to this wonderful and fruitful ministry,which saves Lives and Souls! 
 Annalise’s 
most memorable baby shower was when she helped to celebrate a little boy whose life had been spared by his 9

She also has been using her talents to sing praise and worship music on the microphone during family ministry times at the abortion center.

Ethan’s continued love for 
engineering inspired a 4H presentation 
called “Computer Model 4H”, which 
demonstrated how a computer uses a 7 segment number board and pixels to display images on the screen. He moved  on from the county competition to district level where he won a silver medal  in the Science and Technology division.If he had been one year older, he would  have qualified to go to the state competition at NC State.
That’s okay! There’s always next year!

oy is the newest blessing to our family! She was born on July 13
th 
after the quickest labor of all  (7 ½ hours)! She is a sweetheart who smiles and   giggles throughout the day. Thanks to 
Emmaleigh’s arrival, we are now fondly 
referring to our family as The Metzger Dozen! Emmaleigh is a much-loved and  much-kissed addition to our busy and  blessed household! 
ark continues to get deeper into real  estate activities even as his financial  advisory practice grows. This year included overseeing a complete house renovation for a property we are selling.He made some big changes to his diet and  now exercises regularly! The children,especially Judah, often join Daddy for his workout. Watching a three year old  happily imitate Daddy is great fun! Thanks to that encouragement (A.K.A.hilarious entertainment), Mark is now 2/3rds of the man that he used to be! 
isa has found it equally as rewarding to continue home educating the children,while balancing the weekday family ministry and advising 3-6 people per week on how to start a similar ministry in their area of the country. This year she 
also began doing “Mommy Dates” with 
each of the children, so as to keep up 
with the weekly “Daddy Dates” that 
Mark has been doing for quite some time.
The children enjoy going to Steak ‘n 
Shake for a nice big milkshake with Mommy!
