Family Time

Hey all, just wanted to shoot a quick update. We are still in Jinja with the Palmers, and it looks like we will be staying here longer than riginally planned. We are having a great time here with our extended family. Nothing like quality family time: breaking bread, building fences, laying brick walkways, shooting hoops, praying and worshipping together, and sometimes just sitting around shooting the breeze. God is at work here in our hearts and lives. He is using the Palmer fam to bless us immensely and I believe He is using us in a similar way to bless them. It's really beautiful the way our Father can touch us through other people isn't it? Sometimes it comes through shared wisdom from an older spiritual brother, other times it comes from watching a four-year-old girl dance in worship. It blows my mind just thinking about it. The way God is breaking through to speak to us and to love and bless us all the time (and so often without us even noticing). We serve an awesome God, a gracious Saviour, a loving Father.

For all of you prayer warriors who have been so faithfully supporting us, we just want to thank you. It is obvious that God is listening. Please continue to pray for us. We need wisdom and discernment in the coming weeks. Thanks!

Side note: American's have no idea what they are missing in the soda pop department. All the pop here is made with natural cane sugar instead of corn syrup and it's amazing how big of a difference it makes (plus it all comes in glass bottles which we all know makes the experience more enjoyable). And as if that's not enough, they even have two totally rockin' Coke products that we don't: Stoney Tangawizi (a ginger good) and Krest Bitter Lemon (despite the name, it rules). Just thought you should all know that. It's the little things people...the little things...

Also, in case you are interested, there are a couple books you should check out. Tyler and I are reading "Punk Monk" by Andy Freeman & Pete Grieg together while we are here. It's totally awesome, one of the most inspiring books I've read in a long time. Also, I'm reading "Absolute Surrender" by Andrew Murray and it is easily one of the most powerful, challenging and inspiring books I've ever read. Seriously. So anyway, check those out if you like to read, or if you are desiring more spiritual depth in your walk.

Well, gotta go. There's a game of H.O.R.S.E. waiting for me outside (on a 7 1/2 foot basketball goal). Love and miss you all so much. Give our eachother...and to everyone else you meet...Take all the love you would be giving to us and go find somebody to pour it out on...It'll be fun...Just do it...Trust me, it'll feel good...Ok, bye...
