Great Quote

"I am not here to serve myself. I am not here to be lauded, petted, admired, or 'affirmed'. I am here to build men, cultures, and kingdoms. When I find myself in the midst of difficulties and pain, will I persevere or will I become a coward and pity myself? We do not have time for self-pity! We need to understand that we are to work to build Christ's kingdom for eternity!"

A Sad Goodbye!

On August 18, 2013 we said goodbye to some of our dearest friends the Heinz family. This was a most difficult thing to do as we have come to love them very much over the last three years. Here are some pictures of just a few of the many memories that we made together during those wonderful three years! 

I had to laugh at these pictures of our moms and then us. It looks like us in the future! Haha!!!!

Erich and Iron Will! Kisses to you both!

The Best of Friends! I love you Camille!!!!

We  don't always understand why God allows different things to happen, like having good friends move, but I do know that I can trust the God who does know! May He use you mightily in this new phase of your life! I know that you will touch many new lives with your hospitable spirit and joyful home! 
I love and miss you all!!!
