An early attempt at a train...
Ritah takes a lap with Uncle Rick
I think this was taken right before they fell...
you should see Ashley's knee!
Uncle Josh & Esther practice for their pairs routine!
Auntie Jennifer & Catherine holding each other up
Juliet loves ice skating!
Everyone knows those toe picks don't work...just find a wall!
Look at that form! We had so much fun making trains
that lots of other people hopped on.
We snapped this shot right before the zamboni came out. Notice Juliet (the girl farthest left and the one sleeping in the picture above) already has her shoes on by this point!! Oh well, 12 out of 13 ain't bad!!
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.
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!
'09-'10 tour schedule to come...we'll be heading west this year!
