Taking family photos at our house is always a major event, hence, it happens only about once a year. Here are some recent attempts:

we have passed over it hundreds of times.

Sunday during our morning service we had a big thunderstorm. Our auditorium has a tin roof, so the noise of the rain was deafening. The song leader had to walk up to me and shout the page number so I would know what to play on the keyboard. He would shout the number to the congregation, the first row would shout it behind them to the next row and on back. Since they couldn't hear the keyboard all that well, they were just singing their heart out - using their own tune and timing. It is a good thing the Bible says to "Make a joyful NOISE unto the Lord!" Despite the rain, we still had three visitors. Praise the Lord!
Our days have been very unpredictable. For three weeks our electricity went off every day between 6-7 in the morning and was off for 12-14 hours. Yesterday and today we have had electricity in the morning, but not in the evenings. I'm confused as to what the power company is doing. However, progress is still being made in packing and cleaning, which is good. Our small garden is growing which keeps the children busy. The small section of our yard that we are using is not very fertile, but I thought it would still be good experience and work for the children. The birds (or lizards) are stealing the mulberries, but the strawberries look to be coming in good, as well as the pumpkin, chayote, and cucumbers. The lettuce and carrots are doing poorly, but we will enjoy what comes in. As you can tell from the picture above, everything is very green and beautiful. God blessed us with such a beautiful place to serve Him.
