2008 China Reunion

Our Travel Group Reunion

On Saturday, August 2nd, five families joined us for a reunion at our house. I hope everyone enjoyed it as much as I did. It was so good to spend time with everyone and get to see all the little ones. Leslie said it was the highlight of her summer, and thats something coming from a 15 year old. She absolutely loves everyone. They are just like family to us and I hope it will always be that way. Some couldn't attend this year, but we hope too see them next year. We haven't really decided where we will go next year. The families that attended came from NY, two from GA, KS and MD. I've been trying to post a slideshow of all the pictures, but I'm not having much luck. It will post but it's too large and cuts off some of the picture. I'll see if KP can help me through when she gets home from Africa.

Speaking of KP, Pray for Chris and Kathleen. They arrived in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on Sunday safe and sound. They went to the Transition Home yesterday to meet Levi for the first time, and they go back today and will be able to take him with them this time. He is so adorable! I can't wait until they come home. You can keep up with their trip by visiting their blog http://www.molesfamilywv.blogspot.com/ . Please keep them in your prayers. Their trip home will be a little tricky since they have to fly through Rome and then come back to the US through NY and then on to Columbus.

OH, and I wanted to say.... Don't be bashful. I love comments and would love to hear from those that read!!!.... or not.

Please keep praying for Dad as he takes care of Mom and for our family. The past few days she hasn't been eating well and she gets choked really easy with liquid and even food. I think Dad is relieved Hospice is coming in. They have been very helpful.

God Bless!!
