The funds for the car repair came in. The wonderful mission organization that we work for graciously stepped in and helped us. In addition to that the girls are being allowed a special treat with friends. And we have the opportunity to go visit and see the Hospitality House in Fort Hood. God is alive, well, and still moving in the hearts and lives of his people!!

This week we are staying at our friends Lake House. We have enjoyed the rest and beauty of the Lake. In the meantime our van is in the shop and we are waiting to hear how much the Air Conditioning is going to cost us. We have been thankful for our new cell phone that doubles as a WiFi hotspot as we have been able to stay connected to our emails and facebook. We use those two along with our blog as a means to stay in touch with our friends and supporters. We will be staying with friends who live on campus the rest of the week, and will be meeting with people on that side of Fort Worth. Plan to see my brother every day as he works 5 minutes from my friends house. Pray that God will keep the contacts coming in for us as we get closer to our goal.

I have wondered how I can have such patience when I am antsy to get our Hospitality House. I know that there are some days when I am a little more anxious to go than other days. And I would certainly like a well laid out schedule and plan for our life. But God has yet to reveal all the details that are coming for us. And do you want to know why I am not anxious? I have Peace. The peace of the Holy Spirit that we are exactly where we need to be doing exactly what we are suppose to be doing. I pray that no matter where you are in life, no matter if you are out on the road support raising or not, that you are seeking to be where the Holy Spirit wants you. Cause this is a great place to be!

Camp Cupcake- day 1
While Chris and the boys, along with Jeremy and Grant have been at Children's Camp, we have had fun activities lined up for the girls. I am mostly posting these pictures because my mom was with us the last time we went and she really missed us. So this is for you Grandma Jan!
We need air conditioning in our van. We believe God is going to provide the air in one of three ways:
1. God is going to "heal' the AC
2. God is going to provide the finances for our AC to be repaired
3. God is going to provide us a brand new, paid-off, Suburban.
Will you pray with us, believing that God wants us to have AC?
Chris will be home on Tuesday night to take it to the garage.

As you can tell from all these pictures we had a great time celebrating Grant's Birthday.
I have to admit, I liked playing Extreme Family Dodgeball. And I think you can tell everyone else liked it too. I got tickled at Jeremy's Dad trying to tag him. I think all the parents were trying to dominate their kids..no matter their kids age!

I love being with girls. Older girls, younger girls, bitty girls, and girlfriends. I am enjoying my time with all these girls. I have LOVED playing with a 1 year old. I have enjoyed listening to 3 little girls giggle, talk, share, argue, cry, and be together. I truly liked my time away with my girlfriends shopping, eating, laughing, crying, and sharing. I had a great time sharing my heart with MOPs mommies and having my best friend introduce me to the group was priceless. I marveled at the full circle we have made as friends, the growth of our MOPs group, the excitement felt when friends who couldn't conceive celebrate another pregnancy. This is the warmth that feels your heart and makes your throat get all tingly when you look and realize that you are surrounded by some of the most precious godly women. The women who you know that if something ever happened and you needed them they would fall on their knees and take you to the Savior. What a joy for me to be with these girls at this point in life.
