HAPPY FATHER'S DAY! Kevin made Garry a cup of capuccinno this morning and delivered it in his Father's Day gift-- a new mug! What a blessing to have children, and what fun to see them honor their dad. Today we are enjoying celebrating the million ways that Garry's a great dad... the incredible ways he chooses to spend time with Kevin and Kaleb, the thousand things he teaches them, and the wonderful example he is to our sons. We also enjoy these opportunities to explain to our boys again that this is the work of God in our hearts-- all good things are a blessing from Him! (No, he didn't read this blog or he'd be embarrassed!)

Yesterday I went with another missionary lady to the beauty parlor. You'd probably laugh if you knew how many prayers went up over this little outing. (not about how the cut would turn out, but that's another story!).. you see, getting your hair cut can be quite an experience in this country! In the end, we had a lot of fun, and actually ended up getting a manicure and pedicure besides the haircut-- all for under $8! Then we had lunch at a little Swiss Deli before coming home. I was blessed and encouraged by Elise. I enjoyed hearing what God is doing in their tribal location and in her heart. I was blessed to spend time pondering God's goodness and grace in our lives!

Our church meets in the afternoon, so we are enjoying a quiet morning at home. We enjoy our Sundays and the way God uses this time to draw our attention to Himself. We are truly privileged to be part of what He is doing here!
