WARNING: if you look at this you're gonna be jealous!

We ended up having a few hours to kill on our way to Deltona. The weather was perfect, so we made a short side-trip to Daytona Beach. The kids had sack lunches, so we planned to have a picnic and then take a walk along the beach, just getting our feet wet. For most of our kids, it was their first time to see the ocean. Once Wilber "tripped" and got soaked, the rest of the kids gave that look..."can we 'trip and fall in' too?" We obviously gave in. The kids were thanking us profusely after we left. They had a blast...and we're in Florida all month!!

YOU ARE RIGHT!!! I am jealous! I want to be in warm, sunny weather! You are such a nice mommy to let them get in the water. I bet you had a mess on your hands afterwards!

Where are your Christmas pictures??? Did I miss them?

Nikki said...

Embarassing! I just scrolled down and saw all the Christmas pictures. Sorry!

Rachel said...

I love the pictures!! We are in Florida (Disney) also, and the weather is fabulous!! We are dreading going back to the cold weather :-(
Looks like you guys are having a fun year already!

I'm so sorry that I missed you during Christmas. It was a little crazy for me, as I'm sure it was for you also. Let's talk soon!

They all have a story...

This year's children came to us all the way from Nepal, Uganda and the Philippines. Most of them come from children's homes, but they all have a story of trials that God has brought them through. Some of them have faced things in their young lives that most of us won't face in a lifetime. We praise the Lord for the ministries that love and care for these kids, and most importantly, are teaching them what it means to live for Christ. These children are the future Christian leaders to some of the most unreached areas of our world. We are so blessed to be able to disciple them and have them here as missionaries to the U.S. this year.

give hope

Everywhere we tour, people have the opportunity to give HOPE by sponsoring a child. Just $30 a month provides a little boy or girl with food, clothing, medicine and an education, but it also gives that child the opportunity to hear about Jesus...the only HOPE for eternity! Maybe this is something you've always wanted to do, but you just wanted to make sure it was a trustworthy organization. Maybe you came to a concert and are still thinking about it. Whatever the case, we hope that you will prayerfully consider sponsoring a child. There's no better time to invest in eternity! 

Tour Schedule

'09-'10 tour schedule to come...we'll be heading west this year!
