The Martin Family
Justin and Melissa Martin, along with their 3 children Jett (12), Jacy (9), and Marek (6), have called Augusta home now for almost 2 1/2 years. They moved to Evans from Orlando and Justin joined the team at Journey Community Church as the Worship and Creative Arts Pastor while Melissa added GA to her real estate license and continued to work in all things house/property related. In the winter of 2018, they hosted a sibling group of 3 from an orphanage in Ukraine, and knew shortly after that God's plan was to add them to their family forever. They hosted them two more times as they began the adoption process, and now hope to have them home this year.
Hosting, and now pursuing adoption, has called them to examine and dig deeper into their marriage and vows, watch their hearts and the hearts of their children change and grow as God continues to work, and to re-evaluate every single aspect of how they do life here on earth with the time they're given. There’s so much to work through and so much God still has to teach them, but they know this is what their family is supposed to look like and are eagerly anticipating becoming a family of 8!
