~Happy Birthday, Sweetheart~

Today is my Phillip's birthday! I love you bunches, Sweetheart, and am sooo Glad that Jesus sent you into my life.  You are a wonderful husband, Best Friend, Daddy, and man of God.   You make my world go around. =)
~Bro. Jimmy, Sis. Farly and the church here in Bogota surprised Phillip with a nice birthday party after service Thursday night.
(They sat up the table and cake in the church for a surprise for Phillip, but Bro. Jimmy had everyone leave the sanctuary to eat!)~
~Our family with a sweet family in the church.  (We got pictures with all of the families in the church, but I can't post them all.=)~
~Bro. Jimmy, Sis. Farly, their girls, Bro. Jimmy's sister and family and His Mom with our family.  (His Dad had to work.) [Please excuse the blurry pic.]~
~They served some yummy food called, "Lechona".  It's a yummy rice and shredded pork roasted in the pig's skin...It has a delicious flavor! Each person got a serving of yummy rice and pork, an arepa (similar to a flour tortilla, only thicker) and a piece of what southerners would call "Fat back". =)  It was very DELICIOUS!~
~Phillip, and Bro. Jaime...with the neat wooden plaque that he wood burned with the words of Isaiah 42 in Spanish.~
~Bro. Jimmy and Sis. Farly got this fun car cake for Phillip.~
~It says, "Feliz Cumpleaños Pastor Felipe" (Happy Birthday Pastor Phillip). ~

~It was a delicious "Tres Leches" (3 milk cake!)~
~Elijah says that it was GOOD to the last drop!~
Muchas Gracias, Hermanos, todo fue precioso!  Les queremos MUCHO!
(I'll post pics of his birthday with our family later.=)

Dearest Son, So glad that God brought you into our family. You have blessed us all with your testimony and faithful walk with God. Thank you for giving yourself to Him for service, "even to the uttermost parts of the earth" and for carefully leading and loving your family "as Christ loved the Church!" It was nice talking to you all last night. I Love You, Moma

Jesus has been very good to Dad and I in giving us a son like you are; in that you have given your life to Jesus, you are a man of integrity, and yet you are very down to earth. When Michael and you were children, I never dreamed of the satisfaction and friendship that you two would bring to us in our older age. Nor did I have a clue about how special one's grandchildren would be. Dad & I love it that Heather and you have had five children. Each one of your babies have been beautiful.
Well, I KEEP dozing off, so I need to GET IN MY BED.
I thought of you all day today!
Lots of love.
Mom

Dearest Phillip,
We missed getting to be with you on your birthday as we did last year! But we didn't miss all of the plaster, nor did our neighbors miss the "snow storm"... fun, hilarious memories though, huh?! =)

Sincerely,
Phillip
