Rebekah Tamminga (Power to Change)
Ken and I are excited to announce we are expecting our first child! Baby Tamminga is due Feb 1st, 2021. We are thrilled! We are so thankful for this good gift from the Lord and can't wait to meet our little one!
So far it has been a smooth pregnancy; our baby is healthy and very active! I had difficult morning sickness, but now it has gotten much better. Please pray for energy, as fatigue is my most enduring symptom.
I will continue to work with P2C until January 8th, when I begin one year of maternity leave. After, I'll return to part-time work on the Creative Communications team with P2C. Both Ken and I had stay-at-home-moms, and we really value that, so I will be the primary caregiver of our children. But I also (as an extrovert) really value people/ adult time, and would love to continue using my creative gifts for God's kingdom.
It also feels like the right time to end my formal role with Brock and focus on my full-time role as Video Team Lead. Over the last 6 years it has been deeply rewarding to work with the Brock students and see them grow. I'm excited about the potential of my new focus, as video is a powerful tool to reach students as our ministry moves online.
For our growing child, that God would draw this child to himself, and that he or she would know, love, and follow the Lord all their life.
For Ken and I, that God would prepare and shape us to be the parents he wants us to be.
For safe and healthy growth and delivery, for both baby and myself

Thought for the day: Keep your eyes fixed on Jesus!
The author of Hebrews writes, “let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who…has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God” (Heb 12:1–2). The Apostle Paul urges the same orientation of mind, “seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God” (Col 3:1). We are encouraged to fix our mind’s eye on King Jesus, who is seated in a position of rest, power, and all authority. Jesus is not pacing back and forth, wringing his hands, and wondering what to do. Our Lord, savior and friend is paying attention to us, the human situation, our needs, and the needs of those around the world. We need to pay attention to him—fixing our eyes, setting our minds, waiting—while we attend to the news, our needs and the needs of those around us. Take this perspective and watch things change!
In His grip,
