Old Friends and New Friends

In the back of a taxi on the way to make some visits are Benjamin and his new friend Kylee.

Caleb is still enjoying learning to play tennis.

This month we enjoyed visits from our friends, Deron and MaryBeth, that lived in Abidjan when we arrived. They've been in South Africa for almost a year now, so we got to meet their new baby. We also enjoyed have the Singermans with us. In what is an ever changing life, we were glad to reconnect with old friends and connect with new ones!

With a cloudy political climate, here's one of our little rays of sunshine. He loves the little jumper Gramma sent. Our Benjamin is never still. Even if he's in your arms, he's "running" and "jumping" and "flying".

Our love to all,


This one was taken a week and a half ago when Benjamin met his new friend Kylee.

3 Month Old Ben

I've been trying to see if I can get video uploaded, so tell me how this works for you. It is about a month old, but thought I'd give it a go.

4 Months and Counting

Our little Benjamin is four months old. Hard for us to believe, so I know it is for you too. We've been enjoying a lot of company over the last couple of weeks. Several missionaries have come to spend a week or two here that we haven't seen in a while.

We're still working on language, which takes most of our time. Mike and teammate Jon visited a new area this week and were encouraged to find people asking to hear the "stories".

I send out a monthly prayer letter by email. If you'd like to hear more about our ministry experiences and how you can pray for the people of Abidjan, I'd love to add you to our email list.
