What Have the Kids Been Up To?

The Lord has been growing Brit in many areas over the last few months.  We are so proud of how she continues to draw her strength from The Lord.  It is not easy being so far away from each other but it has been a joy to watch The Lord direct her path.  

Here are just a few highlights we would love to share with you... 

She has been given a job at the school's newspaper as a photographer.  Check out the latest edition of the paper here

Brit was asked to give her testimony during a fundraiser evening for the PaulAnn Mozambique Mission team.   We are thankful for technology that allows for us to be able to watch our girl give her testimony for the first time on the stage in front of a large group of people.   We praise The Lord for the work He has done and continues to do in her life.  You can watch her testimony here.  

This past weekend Brit went to Austin to shoot her first engagement photos for my cousin.   She is very excited about this opportunity and looking forward to shooting the wedding in October.  


It has been fun to watch Luke continue to grow into a young man.  He is a lot of fun to have around and very helpful around the house.  He continues to spend his time in school, working out at the gym, helping with jr. youth, participates in sr. youth.  He also helps with the sound team and the crèche team on a rotating basis.   Last month Kim had the boys build a catapult for school.  It was fun to watch Luke plan and build his catapult.   




This past month he was able to go on a hike with some of his friends in the Wokberg for two nights.  He always comes back with stories to tell.  This last time we heard about spiders and baboons!

 April 19th he had to have his tonsils out.  It's not a fun surgery when you are almost 17.  He is still recovering and dealing with the pain.  I am sure he is hoping the next few weeks will fly by so he can eat (more than toast and jello) and get back to the gym.
