Don't even think about it...

So we're sitting at a restaurant with a few of the kids. We had just gotten our food when this conversation takes place:

Matia: "Auntie Tiffany, can we get ice cream?"

Me: "Matia, you can't even think about ice cream until you finish all your pizza."

10 minutes later, with just some crust on his plate...

Matia: "Auntie, can I think about ice cream now?"

Needless to say, we ended up at Dairy Queen!

Arent you glad you can record all these fuuny things the kids do on this you will always be able to look back and laugh.

Aww, I miss Matia! And Deepesh! I'm so glad you have this blog!!

Tiffany said...

I wish I had a blog for all our past teams too! There are so many stories that I'm sure I've forgotten. Maybe I'll just start blogging those too, just for posterity's sake!

Hi Tiffany! We were not surprised at all that Matia was the one who made that comment. We are all still laughing about what he said about the zebra and elephant on the shirt! Thanks for all the hard work you and the adults did to put this tour together. Our church was impacted BIG TIME - people have not stopped talking about it. There was a great picture of the kids in our morning newspaper! I cannot find the article online, but I will keep trying and send you the link if I find it.
My kids miss Matia and Suresh, and Logan and Haley want to know if Matia remembers their names!
Love in Christ,

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!
