~More pics of our days with Daddy and Moma~

THANK YOU for praying for Daddy and Moma...their trip went as smoothly as can be expected with how WEARY they were.  They arrived home safely last night!!  Praise the Lord!  Traveling mercies and smooth trips are things I DO NOT take for granted...after some of the scares we have had while traveling.   =)
~We did a lot of sewing while Moma was here.  Fixing some skirts for Kimberly and making new white bloomers for Sarah and Mary.~
~On Saturday, March 31st we made preparations to feed lunch to those who would be studying at the pastoral class on Sunday afternoon.  We cut 80 potatoes, lots of celery and onion to make our BIG pot of soup.  Here's Elijah helping cut celery (notice his SAW there in case he needed to use it on the celery. =) ~
~Daddy cut most of the 80 potatoes for the soup.~
~Here's Kimberly stirring our BIG pot of soup.  It wasn't full, but there was A LOT of soup in it!~
~Sunday morning's service.  The front rug got a bath...and wasn't dry, so we had service sideways this time.  It was a special service.~
~God helped Daddy as he preached and Phillip as he translated.~
~Mary during church...with Kimberly sitting behind her in her new skirt Gram fixed for her.~
~Bro. Alberto and Sis. Alba with Mary.  They are the ones who pastor in Medellin and who sew clothes for a living.~
~Bro. Rigoberto and Sis. Ilce with Mary.  They work in Cartagena.  He's the one who gave Phillip the bag you'll see pictured below.~
~L to R:  Sis. Alba, Bro. Alberto, Sis. Ilce, Bro. Rigoberto, Heather, Phillip, Moma, Daddy, Sis. Farly, and Bro. Jimmy!~
~Moma and I serving our BIG pot of soup.~
~We also served apples and made oatmeal raisin cookies.~
~Sis. Farly (on your right) made the sandwiches for our lunch and provided the drinks!~
~All of us ladies together.~
~Sis. Farly's yummy sandwiches.~
~All of us who ate lunch before the pastoral classes started.  We helped served the lunch and enjoyed eating it, then took the babies, Gram, and Mommy home for a MUCH-NEEDED NAP! =) ~
~Bro. Rigoberto works at a youth detention center and he and his young people made this bag for Phillip.  We thought that the little girl who came with the bag was so CUTE we decided to keep her.  =)~
~Kimberly enjoying a fun moment with Mary.  (Thanks, Brittany, and family for all the fun clothes you shopped for and sent to Kimberly!  She's enjoying them!)~
~Noah's dear friend who lives next door to us and our kids skating.  Poor Elijah is using Sarah's skates she outgrew...but he doesn't mind the pink too long as he can have some skates to use.~
~Moma and I being "twinkies" ("twins"...well, sort of twins. =)~
~The kids at the bakery where we took Gram for breakfast one morning after the men had left for classes.~
~Moma, Kimberly, Mary and I at the bakery.~
~Then that night we had an invite to go to a couple's house who attends our church.  They served us a DELICIOUS meal!~
~They were so HAPPY that Moma ate all of their food and enjoyed it.  (Daddy was too tired to come and he needed the evenings to do even more studying than he had previously done...for the next day's classes.)~
~Noah showing Gramp his new skateboard that he had been SAVING his money to get.  It was on sale because it had a scratch and because the store was going out of he got it for nearly 1/2 PRICE!  Praise the Lord!!~
~Each morning, Moma and I would get up early and serve our men breakfast before they left for the classes.  Here's their breakfast table...before the main course had arrived.~
~Each morning we would serve them fresh fruit or fresh fruit juice.  This morning it was fresh yummy mango! (On the little plate was a jelly filled donut to enjoy with their coffee!)~
I still have more pics to share of Daddy and Moma's time here...that I'll post after Resurrection Lord's day. Phillip has some pics of class on our old camera, so I'll try to post some of those as well. The Lord really helped Daddy as he taught and Phillip as he translated for the pastoral classes. THANK YOU for your prayers!
