Happenings

We’ve been getting to know more people who live here in this village we’ve been living in. Violet said she has lots of Grandma’s and Grandpa’s now.

Violet was really wanting her hair cut even shorter, so Mommy and her both got their hairs cut.

A lady in the village who used to work with CEF (Child Evangelism Fellowship), held a 5 day bible club which Violet really enjoyed.

Summer fun

We have been keeping ourselves very busy lately. Violet got her hair cut. We finally got to the beach. And we had some fourth of July bubble fun.

Out in the sunshine

Even though it is incredibly hot and humid here, we have been out and about a lot. There are a few ponds here, which people do some fishing in. And a maintenance guy spotted an alligator last week. I really want to see one, but at a distance. I thought Florida was crawling with them, but we have yet to spot one. Don’t worry, moms, the guys said they take them out when they get too big.

Transition

The last couple weeks have been a time of transition for us. We’ve traveled thousands of miles over land and sea, changed continents, endured three flights with three tired children, ending up in western Florida. We will spend the next month looking to the Lord as we move into another ministry. We’d appreciate your prayers as we look ahead to what’s next.
