Beard Of The Week | Michael Head

I'm a few days late, but lo and behold here I am with this week's Beard Of The Week...  Michael Head!

Michael is one of the original "Stranger Beards" who initially heard about us online. He lives in Silver City, New Mexico and pastors both Indian Hills Baptist Church and Hachita Baptist Church. He loves the Lord, has a beautiful family, and spends lots of time in God's creation...which, FYI, makes us jealous every time he sends in beard pictures because while we are surrounded by concrete, he is surrounded by mountains and desert and all things awesome. See? 

Michael may be states away, but this man is no longer a stranger. He is a brother in Christ and yes, even a facebook friend. In fact, he and his wife Jan are often sending us encouragements via facebook and email and I can tell that they are just plain fun. They are avid ABFAB fans and have taken advantage of social media to help spread the word about our fundraiser. Michael has worked hard to get all of his sponsors in and has had fun doing in.... such a joy for us to witness!

When asked why he wants to grow a beard for us, Michael asked, "How could I not?!" His reasons for growing are threefold:
  1. Adoption is a spiritual grace worked in our lives by the heavenly Father through the power of the Spirit in those united to the Son.
  2. The adoption of children is a grace that God is working among many of the families in one of his congregations. 
  3. He has actively bearded for twenty years. ABFAB inspired his lovely wife to suggest that they find out just how much more awesome his beard growing extravaganzas could get---- and I'd venture to say that it's involvement in bringing our baby home is close to the top!
For the record, Michael's beard is awesome and plays a mean game of pick up sticks. This is only one of the many great reasons why you should sponsor his beard:

Stay bearded,
the hofs
