Progress . . .

Friday, June 1st, 2007

Ken is here this week helping Jon with the bathroom. They’ve been at it for two days and are making progress. As I write, they are building the shower pan, occasionally it sounds like the ceiling is going to come down.

Here are some pics (hope you find pipes exciting) . . .




Back to the grind

Here it is lunch time on Tuesday after vacation, sigh. Only 38 urgent follow up items, too bad every time I cross one off someone sends another email and I add something else to the list.

Vacation was great, made some decent progress on the bathroom as shown in Nicole’s post below. And of course we had to take a couple of days to go to Lakeland where my in laws have the best house to do nothing and eat great food. Sunday we had the interns and some RT (probably warrants further explanation but I don’t feel like writing more right now) over for dinner. The best part about having interns and RT over is the leftovers. Well maybe the best part is spending time with these great guys and girls who are either getting ready to go out on the mission field for a few months or they are just coming back from being out for a few months and getting to know them. Let’s see if I can remember them all…(Todd would be proud of me though the spellings may be way off): returning interns Kyle, Matt, Todd, Alise, Karina, Lauren and new interns Jessie, Kelsie, and Jen and of course fabulous RT folks Woody, Michelle, Christine, and the Wests. Somehow Bruce got added to the mix too?

Sigh…lunch is over

Vacation . . .

. . . means doing a lot of nothing, at least this time around. Originally I was planning several days at the beach, but it has been raining for two days. Before you say awhh, you should know we are officially in a ‘drought’ (I admit that I find this to be a slight exaggeration, particularly when you think of what drought means in most parts of the world. Here it means you can only water your lawn once a week). Either way, we do need the rain so we have not been complaining.

Jon has been tearing our master bathroom out (I guess I shouldn’t say he is doing nothing, but I am). I’ll post a pic below. It isn’t that exciting to see, but I’m so glad it is happening!

Tomorrow we are going to visit my parents . . . more of nothing! Its a perfect place to relax, hopefully no rain and I’ll have a few days at the pool.

More later . . .

Bathroom Demo.

So earlier I talked to Dave for a little while. What’s so strange about that? Well I had to call him on his new cell phone, ya know, the one with his new number in Niger. Dave, Hope, Sam, and Mulligan have relocated to one of the hottest places in the world this past week, Niamey, Niger. This is something they decided long ago and have been working towards, but when it finally happened, the day when they actually got on the plane, it seemed so sudden. We are excited for them and can’t wait to see the awesome ways God uses them to affect destiny. I think you should go check out their site

Easter weekend…

Monday, April 9th, 2007

It is times like this weekend when I truly remember how blessed we are…

First and foremost is Easter and what Jesus Christ did for everyone on the cross, and God raising him from the dead…just unfathomable.

Then there is my awesome family…
