A Short Family Vacation

The day Kurt, Mikayla, Ben, and James came to pick Kirsten and I up from our retreat, we headed off for a short family vacation to Eden Nature Park. It was our respite before this week in which we are now busy packing, painting the new rental, and moving into by July 1!

Jerard stayed at home with Arlene. He tends to throw many seizures when out of his own familiar environment, so we've found it best to leave him in his comfort zone.

Our other two cats




One of our cats had a kitten a few months ago. She loves to stay in the empty flower pots we have.
We named her Ming-Tang - - Ming Ming is what our local friends call kittens; and her colour is orange like Tang!


We are moving into our new rental house by July 1, so the other day, Arlene, Mikayla, Kirsten and I went over to wash walls! We've had new screens installed, a fourth bedroom built and will get some painting done tomorrow.

Friends Departing

One of the problems of being an MK (missionary kid) is that there are many 'so-longs' to be said.
Ben and Fernando have been friends for about 3 or 4 years now, but Fernando's family had to move back to Honduras today.
Pray for Ben and Fernando as they deal with the loss of each other's friendship. It has been a hard 'good-bye' on both their parts.
