We Are So Stinking Happy!

I know that things are not supposed to matter, but we just made a purchase that has me super thrilled. I plan on posting a video of it soon, but for now will put a photo at the end of this little article.

Fact is, I only know one other family that has one of these little beauties.

Yep, we are now the proud owners of a dryer. Look at it. It won´t fit in the house, so we have it outside, and it runs off a propane tank and we have to use an extension cord and a power converter (to go from 220 to 110). However, for the first time in two years, we have soft towels and our clothes are not mildewing in the basket because we can´t hang them on the line in the rain.

We are so uptown!

We purchased this 15 year old beauty from a missionary going back to the States. Now, we are the envy of the mission community...hahahahahahahaha

Jordan's Memorial Service

As many of you have heard, our child Jordan miscarried this past Saturday. Today we had a memorial service at the public cemetary here in Cochabamba. I told Denise that our hearts really are here now, we have had a birth and a death.

About a week ago, there was a chicken pox outbreak at the Casa De Amor Orphanage. As a complication of that, one of the children, Gabriella, went to be with Jesus. Jennifer, the founder and director of the Casa De Amor (and our great friend), allowed us to use Gabriella's grave as the place to hold the service.

Here are some photos for you.

































Please continue to pray for us as we grieve together.
