Our Visit to Jenny in Alabama

The Colemans took us to a beautiful state park and Talladega National Forest about 2 hours from their home. The drive was beautiful and even though it was raining off and on all day, we were able to go on this hike to a water fall. They hope to go camping there later.

Jenny wanted to put some of her dad's photography on her walls, and she choose some scenes from the Texas hill country. We helped her get them framed while we were there.

She made a beautiful quilt that has all the members of her family represented in it and hung it over the piano in the living room. She is very talented at designing and quilting. Did I mention she won the homemaking award in high school?
The kids playing basketball in the backyard. I should have taken a picture of grandson #2 on his computer. You can always find him there.
On Sunday, we went to church. Mike is on the worship team and grandson #2 does the soundboard. My granddaughter is making these beautiful spring flowers in front look even better.

Our Trip to Florida

We had a very nice trip the last two weeks to Sebring, Florida. We had a lot of different adventures, (and photos, of course) but I'm going to start with the purpose of the trip which was to go to Sebring, Florida and assist with the ordination to the gospel ministry of our friend, Ken Lambert, at the Faith Missionary Baptist Church.

Bonnie, Ken's wife is in the center here, with her sister, Debi, on the left and her mother, Peggy, on the right. They sang a lovely special song at the service.

Ken and Bonnie's sons, from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan drove 1500 miles to surprise them this weekend and be with them for the ordination. Their daughter, Angel, lives with them.

Basil also had a three night seminar at their church: " Freedom and Healing Weekend". The diagram will look very familiar, I'm sure!

We had a lovely place to stay on the campus of the Sudan Interior Mission Retirement Village. What an awesome thing to look out the window and know that everyone who lives around us had been missionaries in Africa!

The day before we left, I recieved news that my dear friend, and roommate in nursing school, Jeri, has ovarian cancer. She has had surgery, now and will be having chemotherapy in the next few weeks. Please continue to pray with me for her.
