Check it out!!!

We will no longer be posting on this website so please make the switch over! We would really love to have your support on our journey to Ethiopia!


Someone put an offer on our house today!!!!!! Please pray for everything to work out smoothly! I am so excited and a bit impatient:)  YAY!!!

Also, I think our new blog/website should be ready to reveal tonight! Sorry that we are having to switch you over to something new but apparently Blogger doesnt work too well in Ethiopia.  We are pretty excited about this new site though because it caters to everything we need it to do!  So yeah....tonight hopefully!!  And prayer letters are coming! I am still waiting on SIM to send the brochures....hopefully soon.  You'll be able to download both the brochure and prayer letter through our new site if you are still working on being patient like me:)

at the lake!

We decided to take an impromptu trip down to Austin to visit our friends who just moved there by the lake. Just the kids and I went for a couple of nights since Paul had to work but we had a great time! Jackson and Olivia really enjoyed the boat:)

Cowboy Up!

While you are patiently waiting for our new ministry website and blog I thought I would give you a glimpse into our lives here in Texas. Last week we went to the rodeo with the youth ministry and Jackson has been asking to go back every. single. day. since. Oh and I have misplaced my favorite camera ( don't worry, grandma and Josies, we will find it!) so you will have to forgive me for the sometimes blurry and red eye that my backup camera produces.

this is Olivia's new pose for everything.

checkin out our boots

We signed Jackson up for the drawing for mutton racing but his name didn't get picked so he got to ride the mechanical bull. Oh mutton racing is where a small child puts a huge helmet on and sits on top of a sheep holding on for dear life as the sheep runs around the arena....they usually only hold on for a few seconds before landing in the dirt. And it was his idea to sign up....I just prayed he wouldn't get picked and God listened.

It wasn't ever going fast enough for him to fall off so at the end of the ride he threw himself off:)

oh and some actual rodeo things happened too:)

We are Home!!

We are home but I am BUSY working on our new website, prayer letters, prayer cards, and everything else needed to start raising support!!! We are already in the "under one year time frame" so I better get to work! I know that the Lord will bring in what we need and I always pray like everything relies on Him but I work like it all relies on me! So stay tuned.......the new website should be up and running in the next 2 weeks and a prayer letter will be hitting a mailbox near you! If you know that I probably don't have your address and would like our letter you can send me an email at I can send it to you through email as well:) I will also try and update here with a few kiddo pictures before the new site gets up!
