Pictures from December

Before we post any pictures, we would ask you all who have a chance to view our blog to please pray for the situation of violence in Kenya. The pastor who we lived with two summers ago in Kakamega was robbed and beaten in the marketplace as he went out to buy food. He made it back to the orphanage alive. Please pray also for our friends the Karaus who run an orphanage and pastor a church in one of the biggest slums in Nairobi. They, too, are safe, but the violence in the country is very unpredictable. Thank you for your prayers for our brothers and sisters in Kenya.

awareness and money for AIDS orphans in sub-Saharan Africa

Emma's first semi-sledding experience (Thanks to her dad who
insisted upon it, but all we could find was a shovel for her to ride in).

My brother Nate who came out to visit us before we all headed home to VA

being supervised by Grandpa Adams

A wonderful visit with high school friends Amberleigh and Anna
(and their new additions Dulaney and Ella)

That's all for now folks. Time to hit the sack, it's been a long day taking care of a sick baby- thanks to airplane travel.
