Happy New Year!
If a picture really is worth a thousand words, then this blog is word-rich. In fact, it makes this blog worth 23,379 words. (Thankfully, you don’t actually have to read them all.) December was really busy for us, but also really fun. Check-out all of our photos!
Lilly had her Christmas Dance Recital.
A missionary volunteers her time to teach all of the little girls in our community. It is such a blessing!
The boys had their annual Christmas Cup Tournament.
It was so exciting!
We decorated our tree at home.
The boys “hunted down” the perfect tree for Lulwanda.
The boys were quite proud of their tree.
It was a sight to behold.
Even if it wouldn’t quite stay up properly.
Had our annual Christmas party with our beloved “home staff” and their families. We shared dinner, The Christmas Story and gifts. Our wooden nativity was a novelty. A wise man lost his head, but it’s ok, that is why we have super glue right?
Annual photo with Santa at the mall – Check.
Last meal with Katelyn before she boarded the plane.
Special packages from family and friends make being far away from family and friends not so bad.
Hosted our first team without Natalie, our trusty Program Coordinator. Global Journey. This team was a blast! They made Christmas so much fun!
Capture the flag with the team was a huge hit!
Lilly Christmas morning! Pure delight.
Jackson Christmas morning. Pure coolness.
John Christmas morning. Pure sweetness.
Chicken Christmas morning. Pure………?
We hope your Christmas was merry and your New Year is filled with hope!
Hope you enjoyed our photos from December.
We also wanted to take this time to share with you all that our furlough will be delayed this year. The original plan was for us to come back to The States in February. We have recently decided that a longer summer furlough will work better for us this year. So, we are planning on returning in May. We will give you more details in the coming months. In the meantime, please continue to pray for our family. If you are interested in praying for us more specifically, shoot me an email and I will get you on our monthly prayer calendar list (firstname.lastname@example.org).
