David took our laptop (hence, internet) with him. So, you will not be hearing from me for a while. Please keep us in your prayers as we each do what God has for us during this time.
Enjoy the silence :) because I am sure there will be lots of great pictures and stories upon his return!

We were shown a two-story building (sorry, no picture... can you believe it?!) where our church group will be sleeping... girls on the second floor, guys on the first floor. Here are some pictures from inside that building...
We went today to look over the territory of a place we have never been, which is located about 15 minutes outside of our city. In this post, I will show you the outdoor pictures. In the next post you will see everything else.
Our tour begins at the entrance with the sign "Camp Mountain Creek:"
All three of the above-mentioned sports areas shown together

Although you'll see lots of pictures of my sweet kids, our home, and things we do, I want to keep the focus of this blog on missions. I also want you see see what it is like for us to be missionaries here so you can, in a small way, live this adventure with us!
Just thought I'd add one thought here, though.... We DO receive constant blessings. Unlike the poem leads you to think... I want you to know that we are here at the front of the battle lines where we see, not only the "fallen," but we also see the many, many steps of progress... souls saved and lives changed!
So, I would choose no other life!

The day before his birthday we gave Davey a little riddle. We told him that he would not wake up to any presents because he was going to be choosing the gift himself. The reason was that we needed him to be there to choose the size. By the end of the day, he was pretty convinced he was getting some sort of clothing. We just enjoyed letting him think that, knowing what the real present was going to be...
Today we had a small gathering at our house for Davey to celebrate being 8 with his friends. David grilled hot dogs for a menu of grilled chili-cheese dogs, potato salad, and birthday cake. Yum!
