Pictures Continued

Yura, Tanya, Katie, me, and Ruslan led the children's program in Kramatorsk, Ukraine (summer 2005). This was a mission program sponsored by the Evangelical Free Church of Canada. The program was kind of in a Vacation Bible School format.Yura led the morning worship, Tanya recreation, Katie arts and crafts, I taught English and Ruslan led the Bible study. I was planning on returning this past summer but had my appendix removed. I would love to return again this summer and would appreciate your prayers in that area.

Here are many of the children that we served in Kramatorsk. It was an amazing blessing to see so many children come to know the Lord!

Katie and I in Kiev.

Posing in front of an ancient Roman statue at the Louvre. Katie and I visited the Louvre twice and saw only a fraction in 8 hours!

One of my favorite things in Paris was visiting the Catacombes. I left every thing untouched and did not try to steal any bones unlike some one I know, you know who you are =).

Jessica's hiking and travel adventures

Katie and I enjoying a hike on the Skyline Divide trail at Mt. Baker in August 2006.

The suspension bridge on the Carbon Glacier hike at Mt. Rainier with Kaylene from church - September 2006.

So, I was very excited to post my very first pictures on the blog (I have never done this before)! Unfortunately I did not realize how many little steps there were. It is now 10:30 pm, I am tired, Angie is tired, for the sake of our friendship I am going bed. We will have another lesson tomorrow. More pictures will be on the way soon.

Together again...

Jess and I lived together for 4 of our 5 years at Western Washington University. The year after graduation she moved down to Puyallup while I stayed in Bellingham doing an internship at the INN University Ministries. After contemplating several options for post-internship living, I decided to move to Puyallup to live with Jess again. In the picture you can see us on move in day back in August. We love where we live and enjoy being together again.
