Jennie has been continuing in her project for clothes for children in Kenya. Last week we went to garage sales and to the Goodwill stores to gather up clothes. She has a large box ready and she has spent most of her ready cash! Now she just has to mail them!
She has now put out a notice on her facebook asking for donations of gently used summer clothes for her project. We also announced it in our Sunday School class. (We are currently attending a larger Sunday School class that is mostly younger couples. We are the oldest in the class but the topic is the Love and Respect book. We have been reading it and are now going through it in Sunday School.) Anyway, hopefully, Jennie will collect even more clothes!

We are leaving for Pensacola, Florida on Thursday afternoon! We will only be gone a few days...Lord willing, we will be back on Monday. Roger's nephew Rob will be graduating from the high school at Pensacola Christian College as the valedictorian! We are so proud of him and his hard work! He has a 4.07 GPA!! Good Grief.

My precious daughter in law, Erin, is currently on bed rest in her pregnancy. Hopefully, she will only need to do that for a week. Her amniotic fluid is low so she needs to take it easy for a while. She will not be able to return to work for a while. Little Liam is already about 6lbs 14 oz and he isn't due for another 5 weeks! She said that she has today's ultrasound pictures and he has the chubbiest cheeks ever!! Can't wait to smooch those chubby little cheeks!! What an incredible blessing!!!!!!! Danny seems to be doing well in his police work and he is done with the anti viral medication from the "drug bust" needle poke. Hopefully, soon he can put all that behind him and concentrate on his job and his family. (and the Lord, of course.....!!!!)

Marci's sweet boyfriend, Ben, arrived safely in Poland and is beginning to do his teaching there. She misses him but is trying to get along without him. (She is determined to learn how to fix a steak dinner so that she can prepare him one when he gets back! She isn't going to be able to learn from me since I never fix steak!!)

Have a lovely day!


  1. Beth,
    You have so much going on!

    I wish we were closer that I could give you the clothes we have ready for our yard sale.
    I am sure that everyone will be excited by your dear girl's sacrifice to give, give, give!

    Best wishes to the new momma and daddy. Soon the little guy will be in their arms...even if it does seem forever right now.

  2. I think it is lovely that your daughter is shopping for clothes for children in Kenya. It is quite exciting to do this - I remember buying little outfits off the sale racks to send to an orphanage in the Philipines where my friends were adopting twin girls from. She really understands what it means to be blessed to be a blessing to others!

  3. Thank you, ladies, for your wonderful comments. I will tell her what you have said, it really lifts her up and encourages her!
    Lots of love to you!!!!
