~Dear Nicole Cassady and her family sent us some goodies with Daddy and Moma! I had told her that we cannot get Cheerios here and that we LOVE them and she sent us some REAL CHEERIOS!! We REALLY enjoyed having a bowl of Cheerios with fresh Colombian strawberries. YUMMY!! Thanks Cassadys!!
~Our Christmas on Wednesday morning from Daddy and Moma, my sister Laura and family, and the dear FRIENDS at the Union Friends Church in Westfield, IN, where Daddy is privileged to pastor! THANK YOU TO ALL WHO SENT US THOSE WONDERFUL GOODIES!!! We truly are BLESSED by your thoughtfulness and Love that you have shown us!!! May God RICHLY bless y'all!! =) We had a FUN CHRISTMAS!!
~Sarah with her new little doll baby from the Union Friends Church. She plays with it ALL of the time and has hardly laid it down since receiving it! THANK YOU!!
~Noah playing with the roadway rug and truck that was given to him by the Union Friends church.
~Gramp and Noah "Playing" with Noah's Thomas the Train!~
~Eating at a nearby restaurant. There is where they serve a huge meal for about $2.50 for the food and juice!~
~We had Daddy busy his first full day here...preaching in English in Jimmy's church Wednesday night, and Phillip translating into Spanish. God helped them both!!~
~After Church Moma passed out candy bars to the people, and this little baby surely was enjoying hers!~
~Thursday morning...still Christmas! This is when we received our Christmas stockings from Daddy and Moma/Gramp and Gram!~
~FINALLY...we get to open our stockings! =) What treasures and yummy candy we received.~
~My Moma used Phillip's clean socks for our stockings! Our kids had never seen real socks used for stockings and got a real kick out of it! =D We went to our Thursday evening service, and God gave us a good service. Daddy and Moma got a little taste of walking and waiting to catch the crowded bus, taken the 45 minute ride up to church, having church, riding the 45 mins. back down the mountain and then walking the mile home...walking a total 2 1/2 miles! =)~
~Today, Friday we took Daddy and Moma to an indoor market for them to see some of Colombian culture, and then we ate together. (Sadly, The older lady that took the picture cut out our men!)
~Daddy and Moma with the cook from the restaurant that cooked our lunch. She and the ladies in her restaurant are our dear friends and love us to pieces. Any time we come to this market we always eat at their restaurant!~
We are having a BLAST having Daddy and Moma here! Other than being tired (for we stay up talking late and catching up almost every night,) Daddy and Moma haven't been sick or had trouble with the altitude. THANKS FOR PRAYING!
Tomorrow (Saturday) we will celebrate Kimberly and Noah's birthday (their birthday is actually Sunday) and then Daddy will teach at Phillip's 3 hour Bible class and Phillip will interpret! Then of course, Sunday will be a BUSY day with 2 services! I'll try to keep y'all updated as I can! It's hard to stop and do a post when you are having a BLAST having your parents here! (and cooking meals, etc.) =D Thanks for all y'all's nice comments!
