 ~Like I said it was around Easter.
So for the children that come to study English at our house each week, My kids and I took these cute bunny rabbit "kabobs" that I bought for cheap here, and we put candy on them to pass out to the kids at English class that night.~
~They were a hit!~

~After Phillip taught the kids English class using a Bible verse, and then a game, I served my Mexican rice, Quesadillas and my homemade salsa, drinks, and the cappuccino muffins with coffee.~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
~Phillip felt like the Lord would have him open up our home on Sunday nights to have a Bible Study.
He has been inviting local people to come and Study God's Word with us.
We were delighted that Fernando and his family came to our Bible Study 2 weeks ago. ~
~And this past Sunday night Fernando, his wife Mariela, and Jeremias came again and they brought with them Daiana and her son.
We are enjoying studying God's Word, singing hymns, and praying together! ~

~Mariela and I~
 ~Mariela brought a yummy cake that we shared afterwards!~

~Look Abigail is 8 months!~

~When Noah was a baby, We packed HIS THINGS IN A SUITCASE and we took him to Costa Rica! :-)
When Elijah was a baby, I "packed HIM up in a suitcase" that said, "Colombia!"  (He moved to Colombia when he was just 3 months!)
When Mary was a baby, I "packed HER up in suitcase" that said, "Argentina!"  (She moved to Argentina when she was 1.)
Now, just for fun, I "packed up baby Abigail in a suitcase" that says, "U.S.A."~

~Abigail is such an ACTIVE little baby...that the "U.S.A." sign didn't last too long...she ate it! :-) ~

 ~The end result of my "U.S.A." sign!  :-( ~
 ~Abigail is very you can tell by this face.  She comes straight from her Grandpa Bud, GG Scarbrough, Gram Bryan and her Mommy!~
~Such a SWEET Bundle of Joy that Jesus sent us....we love her to pieces!!~
~She's crawling and getting into everything now!! :-)
~You can pray for her as she is also PULLING UP to her knees and feet, and this HARD marble floor will NOT be a soft landing if she falls!  I'm thinking of buying her a helmet! ;-) ~
~Our Sweet baby Abigail!~
Can't believe she is already 8 months!!!

~Day 3 of I.H.C., from Argentina!~

~Last night after service Sarah, (Mary) and I quickly mixed up some bread and made MONKEY BREAD for our breakfast!  ~
~It was a hit!~
 ~Daddy had purchased some yogurts for us, so we had those for breakfast along with our boiled eggs, Monkey bread, and coffee.~
 ~We had some left-over dough, so threw it in a pan, and made another small pan of Monkey Bread.~
 ~By the looks of this plate...the monkey bread...was GOOD TO THE LAST DROP!~
 ~Abigail and I on Day 3 of I.H.C.  (For this picture, I forgot to take off her little black "walker socks" that she wears while she's in the walker.) ~
~In between services or while we listened, we washed dishes, put in a load of laundry, folded clothes, prepared the next meal, etc.
Here Mary is looking at a kids' Bible program while listening to the morning service. :-) ~
 ~Poor Phillip was SAD for he had to leave I.H.C. and miss the morning Bible Study and service, to take the boys to their classical guitar lessons.  Here they are after they are back.~
 ~With our supper today, we enjoyed this yummy drink that our friends Leo and Caro got for our family!~
 ~Watching the Chapel of the Children!~
 ~When Dad Sankey mentioned our family "eating junk food and watching from Argentina" right before the Chapel of the Children sang.  :-) ~
 ~Drinking Peach/Green tea while listening to the afternoon service. ~
 ~Enjoying my little dainty white tea cup and saucer that I got in Uruguay with some of my Christmas money.~
 ~I got it for a GREAT price!  I love the little "pedestal" on the bottom of the cup.~
 ~Phillip watching the afternoon service, while holding a "worn out baby Abigail!" ~
 ~Abigail enjoying her little "apple in the a bag" snack.~

 ~Supper time!~

 ~We had a yummy fresh salad, homemade bread, breaded pork chops, and the rest of the family had buttered noodles too.~
 ~Daddy bought ice cream for our dessert that we ate while we watched the very last service!~

 ~Dear Dad Sankey calling out the States and countries!!  When he called out Argentina, our whole family SCREAMED and Elijah blew his trumpet!!!~ 
 ~I'm surprised that y'all didn't hear us there when Dad Sankey called "Argentina!!" :-)
 ~We loved Bro. Davisons' sermon, Dad Sankey praying for us parents... ~
~and the beautiful mass choir!~
We absolutely LOVED I.H.C.!!!
We THANK THE LORD that we got to "attend" via internet!
When Daniel and Angie Edwards were beautifully singing,
"Little Is Much, when God is in it"
Phillip said,
"And much is LITTLE, when God's NOT in it!"

May we all do our part to touch every life we can for Jesus...and Brighten the Corner WHERE WE ARE!!
Thanks for tuning into our family as we were enjoying I.H.C.!
