~Our Dear friends at the Bible Holiness Church in Shelbyville have faithfully supported our family with their love and prayers for years!
The Smiths are our dear friends. Pastor Joseph Smith and Stephanie came down to Colombia and held some services for our people.
We were delighted to get to go back and see them again and have a missions service.
~When Phillip pastored the church in Phoenix, AZ, before we went to the mission field, Trint and Janette and Sis. Castle were a part of that congregation.
Now they attend Shelbyville, so it was so FUN to get to be with them again!!
Our kids were Having a blast being together and HOWLING LAUGHING!~
~It was a combined Spanish and English service, so we sang one special that included both.~
Is SARAH AND SARAH! :-) ~
~One Snowy night, Our dear friend Miss Linda invited us over for pizza. Our dear friends Paul and Linda Alexander were there too.
Phillip really enjoyed talking missions with Bro. Alexander, who was a missionary to Spanish speaking fields for around 16 years or more.
Little Abigail was "reading a 'tory" in Miss Linda's chair.~
She often sits on the tray of her highchair. Trust me, we are trying to break the habit!~
~OUR VALENTINE'S DINNER AT DARYL AND LAURA'S!~
~We were delighted to get an invitation from Daryl and Laura for Sunday dinner on Valentine's day. :-) And they invited Daddy and Moma over as well.
Laura's table was beautiful and so festive!~
Laura made and served candied carrots, yummy tender lamb, mashed potatoes, and gravy, asparagus, tea, and yummy brownies, ice cream and toppings.~
It was a lovely evening getting snowed in together!~
I got this neat vintage typesetter tray from my Daddy.
I put it on the back of the toilet for decoration and Phillip "put it to good use" with all of our oils.~
Up next, pics of our annual celebration dinner where we go out as a family to an ethnic restaurant to celebrate God calling us to be missionaries!
