Kevin turns 18!

On Saturday Kevin turned 18 years old! He chose his favorite meal to share with family and finished it off with brownies and ice-cream, then invited a few friends over for cake and ice-cream. A major milestone, and I don't even have pictures... maybe I'll find some yet and add them later:). Today Kevin is taking his road test for his drivers license, another milestone. No doubt about it, we have a young adult in the house now... though he's still in grade 12!

Being a good mom I thought I'd recount some of the major milestones in his life, the ways he's grown, and the things we love about being parents to Kevin. But on second thought, I realised that I'd better be an excellent mom-- keep those particular thoughts to myself!

We are heading out to Pennsylvania to visit one of our churches and spend a couple weeks with my parents! I'm excited to see my parents and spend some time in my old home territory. My parents are going through some of my grandparents photos, and I'm hoping we get some time to sit and hear them tell stories about growing up and their lives. What a blessing to hear our parents recount the faithfulness of God to our kids!

Garry's been doing a million things lately as he pursues setting up an aviation Safety Management System for NTM Aviation. Thinking, learning, and passing things on.

We recently sent out an e-mail update about the new believers in Menti, sharing more of the story. If you didn't receive that and would like to, enter your e-mail address on the right side under "sign up here to receive our newsletter" and we'll send you a copy. God is good and the ways He works are amazing! What a privilege to be a small part of it!
