I'm back.
Our dear friends in Colombia...Jimmy and Farly have had a tragedy in their lives. Farly's father, which was a great Christian man and our dear friend too, was hit by a taxi on his way to fast and prayer at Jimmy's church last week. After suffering for a few days in the hospital, he passed away this past Monday. This news has hit our family really hard and has made Phillip and I and our children cry. We loved Don Dario and we will greatly miss him. He was a big asset to God's work there in Colombia. Please keep Jimmy and Farly in your prayers! Thanks.
It looks like we get to stay for Comargo camp, and we are very happy about that. Enjoy the pics of some of what has been keeping us busy. =D
~We picked up lunch for our family and the Shirk family and went by their house and had a nice visit with them. As I told you earlier, Don had a serious motor cycle wreck a few weeks ago. He is healing...slowly but surely. His jaw was broken and is still wired shut, so he can only have liquids right now. We Thank God for sparing Don's life. Please pray for he and his family during this difficult time. THANKS!~

~A local library had a couple of helicopters land in their parking lot and the kids got to ask the pilots questions and get inside the helicopters. There were 2 fire trucks and a police car there too. It was a fun way to begin our cousin Bryan's birthday celebration day. Here, Noah is plugging his ears because the helicopters were so loud.~

~We enjoyed spending a couple days with Michael, Beth (and their baby girl due in November), and Isaiah. Here, Aunt Beth has our Elijah snuggled up to his baby girl cousin due in November. =D~

~Here is a picture of my 3 friends and I that took a picture when they were still pregnant. Now we all have our babies in our arms. =D (I would have had to wear a very full skirt for this picture so this skirt makes me look as big as a barn.) ~Out with the Pilmores~

How sad about Farly's father getting killed. I am sorry to hear of your loss.
I am HAPPY you get to stay for the Camp Meeting! It will give you some encouragement before you head home to minister to others.
You talk about a barn-I could show you what a barn looks like, but I'll not send you one of my pictures! You look like a model in your pictures-not a barn!
Love, Mom D in Phoenix
