Abigail says Dada

So, I am about a week late posting this but Abigail has possibly said the most important words she will ever say, Dada. Yes, that may be a wee bit of an exaggeration.

Things are going well here in Canaan. Recently, we along with the other volunteers here began preparing for International Student Convention. This Convention is full of academic and athletic events that is put on by A.C.E. which provides the curriculum for the school. Anna is going to be working with the Drama (fitting for her, just kidding) and photography. I will be working with the Basketball team (no jokes) and the Bible bowl team. We are really excited as are the kids as you might could imagine. The Convention begins in May at Indiana University in Pennsylvania.Please be praying for the preparation and logistics leading up to it.

Recently it has been busy around here. At the beginning of October, there was a team of 40 something, and since then teams have sprinkled in. If any of you all ever want to come please let us know as there is much to do inside and outside of Canaan.

Luke and I have really been having a good time the last few weeks. I have been getting out of school around four and then going and getting Luke and playing basketball till supper at five. Everywhere we go, he backs up to me and says "Daddy, I ride on your shoulders". Precious, truly precious. I am really excited for this coming Saturday because all of the volunteers here will be going down the road to a place where we can swim and visit the beach. The pool has long steps and Luke likes to walk up and down the steps, he calls it swimming.

By for now.

  1. Always great to hear from you guys! Glad to hear things are going well and y'all seem to be acclimated. It's hilarious thinking about David playing basketball, but if you ever need a ringer, call me up. I will continue to pray for your work down there hope to read more.
