A Few Random Happenings...

The other day the kids caught a few little tiny birds.  They are African yellow white eyes.  So sweet.  One of them was healthy and so we let it go.  The other one had a broken wing, the kids tried to rehabilitate it, but to no avail.  Little birds are hard to help. 

There have also been quite a few of these guys hanging around.  We couldn't find an ID on them, however.

And then to our amazement, this beautiful barn owl spent the day in our tree right next to our house.  What a treat to be able to watch him throughout the day!

For a couple of years our back porch has been used to store church stuff in.  Since the church has moved, we are now able to use the space again.  The girls and I built this couch out of pallets, foam mattresses and pillows.  It's a cozy spot in our house now.

For some reason, Katelyn and I decided to take bodas to town when we got the mattresses and pillows.  Here we are getting everything loaded up to go home.

We had two wonderful young ladies come to visit us a few weeks ago.  They were working with church kids, working in the village schools and helping in the community.  Sadly, they had to suddenly head home when one of them lost her brother while she was here.  Please pray for peace for her and her family as they grieve.   

We also praise the Lord that we got our i600a...a very important document that we were waiting for in order to be able to move forward in getting Denise's visa.  We are thankful for all the ways God continues to help us to move forward in this very difficult process.  We are still praying that God will allow us to return for furlough in August.  Please continue to pray for this also!
