Thank you so much for your prayers over this past month. As we start into March here in South Texas, we are seeing our first few wildflowers, green buds on some of the trees, sweet-smelling yellow blooms on the prickly agarita bushes all over the pastures, and the first of the pink peach blossoms in our garden are starting to open now. DJ and Galilee have already planted a number of the early crops like cabbage, broccoli, greens, etc. They have a lot of little plants started under a grow light inside the cabin too. Lord willing, they’ll be able to put those out in a couple weeks. We’re thankful that gardening is really helping to motivate Galilee to be outside and keep working on her recovery. She has also increased the amount of time she spends each day on school work and exercise, and is keeping up with that.
I (Jennifer) just finished sorting one of our organization’s older culture & language learning manuals into categories so it’ll be easier to find what we need as resources for drafting the new program. It was nice to be able to do something helpful even as I still have a ways to go to feel caught up with the whole project. I continue to meet virtually with teammates several times a week and do lots of reading about the project and language & culture learning subjects too.
DJ has started meeting virtually with his new IT Team, and will be working on some certifications as soon as his teammates get his accounts set up for that.
Areli has enjoyed getting involved with the range team in the agriculture department at school. Early next week she’ll have her second trip to a competition with her team. Their main focus is on plant identification. Tyndale enjoys spending weekends with his cousins who live a few miles up the canyon from us anytime he gets the chance. He’s looking forward to taking dual-credit classes starting next year, and joining some scholastic competitions.
Thanks again for all of your prayers & support. God bless y’all!
