~MY PRECIOUS FAMILY~
A year ago God made it possible for my WHOLE family to be together, for the first time in 4 or 5 years. Our family is VERY close, but you see, with my oldest brother Andrew and his dear wife Vonnie, and their 6 kids living in Alaska, my other brother Lincoln and his dear wife and their 2 kids living in Virgina, my sister Laura and her nice husband Daryl and their 4 kids being missionaries in Romania, and me (the BABY=) and my family missionaries in Colombia, and my parents pastoring in Canada...it makes it hard to get together much. But we had an AWESOME TIME in June! There were 26 of us (including Grandma) in one house! =) WE HAVE WONDERFUL MEMORIES FROM THAT TIME TOGETHER...THAT WILL LAST A LIFE TIME!!
Happy Father's Day Dad D. Thank you for serving Jesus...and making Him #1 in y'all's home! Thank you for loving Mom D. faithfully...and showing Phillip and I how to stay in Love and happily married. Thank you for raising Phillip to be the wonderful man that he is! You and Mom D. did a GREAT job! Thanks for all the hours of HARD Work to place your boys in Christian schools. And thanks for accepting me as your daughter, and loving the 3 precious children that God has given us. Thanks for you and Mom's supporting our decision to follow God's will to come to Colombia. We love you bunches, and wish you a Very Happy Father's Day!

Thanks for faithfully having family devotions, and for just being the BEST! Kimberly, Sarah, Noah and I wish you a VERY HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!
