Ok, I really need update this more often.  It has been a really busy time.  My mother was hospitalized in the middle of January with  a kidney infection and ended up going home to be with the Lord on January 22.  It  was a  bittersweet time. She was almost 87 and wanted to go home.  We were all able to be there with her before she went and she was more than ready.

We also got our video finished. You can see it here.  We would love to come and talk with you about all the great things the Lord is doing in South Sudan through SIM and the many partners that are working to rebuild a nation.

We just got back from our first road trip to Wisconsin.  It was a great time reconnecting with some old friends and we were able to share our heart for the people of South Sudan.  Lord willing, we will be setting up some group presentations in the coming months as a result of these meetings.

Please pray that we will find the time to get the many things done that we need to in order to be ready in the Lord's time.
