What a year it has been! 2013 was normal for us in that it was full of life changing events. Our family moved from Okmulgee back to our hometown of Ponca City where Zachary opened his computer repair business! It is a blessing to be closer to our parents, siblings, and other relatives. We love family time!
We felt early in the year that the Lord was drawing us back to Ponca City with a move likely in the summer, but we had no idea how this would be possible. We prayed and talked for countless hours about the possibilities, but it was July before we knew it was actually going to happen! We moved into our new home in Ponca City on August 2, and what a testimony of God’s provision it has been. Zachary J. Pruett Computers is a dream come true. Zachary enjoys working with computers and thrives on the problem-solving involved. Customer service is definitely his niche. He loves helping people.
We believe in steady, sustainable growth, so, with the Lord’s help, Zachary has been creative and worked long hours to make sure all our needs are met during this start up time. He was quickly hired at Ponca City’s JC Penney and was promoted to a supervisor’s position only three months later.
Elizabeth continues to work at home and care for precious little Anna Christine, who is now 20 months old and very much an adorable and active toddler. Anna celebrated her 1st Birthday in April by taking her first unassisted steps and can now run and climb and reach with enthusiasm. She loves music and “sings” along with Daddy and Momma. Her vocabulary is growing quickly, and she is getting better about repeating words back to us. She is full of joy, and it is definitely contagious!
Anna is fascinated by babies. She loves her doll and points out babies both in public and in pictures and movies. The timing is perfect since she will have her own baby sibling to love on next summer.
We found a church home at Longwood Baptist Church in the beautiful countryside just outside Ponca City, and we feel blessed in our new church family as we grow in our relationships with them and worship our Lord together. Their sweet and welcoming spirits make us feel right at home.
Some of the highlights of our year included visiting Grandma and Grandpa Koskey in New Mexico, seeing the Grand Canyon, Saguaro National Park, and Elizabeth’s Grand Uncle Tom and Aunt Nancy in Arizona, Zachary becoming A+ce Certified, Grandpa Moore’s 80th Birthday Party, Elizabeth joining the General and Oklahoma Societies of Mayflower Descendants, and our finding out that a little one is on its way! Please be in prayer for a healthy pregnancy and delivery and that Zachary’s work would be blessed.
We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from our home to yours. Much love,
Zachary, Elizabeth, and Anna Pruett
