one more day

Ilze will arrive tomorrow at 2pm and we are so ready for her! We borrowed a bed from my mother in law, I got the cutest duvet cover from a friend to spoil her with (it is lilac with fun flowers) and we are going to see Snow White and the seven dwarfs on Saturday... So FUN.

We are ready Missy!!!

The last couple of weeks were CRAZY!!!!!! We had an outreach with our Young Adult Ministry, read Wanda’s blog.

Martin preached that Sunday night, and this always stresses me out! The preparation happens to late, because there usually is no time because of all the other things going on in a week. You know Martin, this just doesnt work for him.

Preaching is not the last thing he did - he actually married a couple last week! I know God is stretching him way more than we ever thought he could be stretched. We had to rent a suit, and borrow a tie... I'm telling you, it was a stretching experience. Bernard took the photo's so it was fun to have the brothers at the same wedding. See Bernards photo's of Fred and Frans wedding! 

To make all this worse, Martin had to get a Voltarin Shot on Monday. His neck went into a spasm! My poor man! But that evening we went to a show at the Barnyard Theatre. It is was a fundraising event and Pierre, one of our dear friends drummed at the event. It was great. The theme was French Connection.

The most exciting news is that Ilze is coming to visit us (me)!!! God provided a ticket and she is flying by herself! She will be here from July 1- 16th! This will give my mom an opportunity to take a break and relax for a few weeks. I can hardly stand it, we are going to have so much fun!

Jordan is HOME

Meet Nate and Stef, they are some of our American friends. They have been in the process of adopting from Ethiopia since we left the USA in 2007.  Baby Jordan arrived in the USA yesterday. 

He is officially their SON! 
I've never seen Stef so happy! This is a wonderful couple who has an amazing story and I'm so thrilled for their new journey to begin! 

Here are some amazing emotion filled pics if you want to see the airport meeting in Kentucky with friends and family.
