We are excited to have Heather with us from Texas and Cody, Beka and little Abi from Aviation training in Arizona helping us to celebrate Christmas. Jason and his family were not able to come from California but at least we got to have a nice long visit with them this summer while we were […]
We are contemplating a trip out west to Montana this summer for a family reunion and to visit supporters and supporting churches. We also have a supporting church in Oregon.
