Off Line

We have no home phone and no internet at home either . . . hence the lack of posts. My gratitude to those of you who have kept checking our blog. We are all doing well. We are loving the weather, and Christian is really enjoying his job. We just mailed out a newsletter last week that gives a few more details on that. If you didn't receive one just let us know and we will add you to our mailing list.

There is a block party scheduled for our neighborhood today so the kids got out their littlest dirt bike and all took turns zipping around the streets. It was fun to watch them ride. They love it.

We have gone to some very interesting churches over the past few weeks. We attended a baptism at one last week. It is always so amazing to watch people commit their lives to Christ. I didn't know anything about the people professing their faith in Jesus in the pool, in the parking lot outside the cinema. I am sure they were just like the rest of us. They have a story to tell. A life full of trials and heartache with a scarred heart to prove it. Yet, in that pool, the hope and peace that washed over them because they know God now was almost tangible. God is so amazing, the way he has chosen to love us, and know us, and change us. But most of all, I am so thankful for the hope gives.
