Prom Dress

Jessie's Prom dress is finished! It was fun to do and everything went well (I think!) Pictures will be forthcoming in a couple weeks.

Now, we're on to the next details of the end of senior year. If the weather holds up there will be 4 tennis matches this week, plus piano recital, plus district music!

Have a great day!

MEXICALI--A Fantastic Week!

Thank you so much to all of you who prayed for us in Mexicali. The week went soooo well--your prayers were vital and very evident. Here are a few pictures from our trip:
This is Ricardo, a sweet little guy at my site--Robledo. He was always sitting so quietly and attentively, and loved doing all the crafts. This was a cross that had colored strips woven through it like a basket. It wasn't easy for them to do, but he persevered.
This is Jessie and Brad at El Campo, a big open field where kids come to play in the afternoon. It was our service project for the first day, so we picked up all the big rocks, glass, etc. that were strewn across it.

Some days we held an impromptu mini-VBS at El Campo. The puppets are always ready to perform.

This is a picture of boys just wanting their picture taken at El Campo. Their school is in the background on the other side of the fence. They loved to play soccer and were usually able to beat our high schoolers!

MEXICALI--Here we come!

Here's a picture of Jessie, Brad and I at church Sunday following the commissioning service. As usual, it's a dorky picture of me, but it will be a good reminder to you of how very much I need your prayers!

We fly from Omaha to San Diego Saturday morning and will arrive in Mexicali by RV Saturday night. We will drive back to San Diego Thursday night and fly out of there early the next Saturday morning.

Please pray that our time with the kids coming for VBS will be effective and many will come to know the Lord and be strengthened in their faith. And, that each of us ministering will grow in our faith, as well.

Have a great week! I'll try to report back after our trip.
