Visiting Beaver Island

Above is Renee demonstrating a health and hygiene lesson to the congregation of Lighthouse Community Church on Beaver Island.

Last week for us was a week to relax a little with the kids while being able to talk with folks about Ecuador and what the Lord has called us to do there.
The kids were all on Spring Break so they enjoyed the first part of the week playing with friends, hunting for Easter eggs and cleaning their closets (I'm not sure they enjoyed it but mom definitely liked to see a clean closet when they were done!) :). On Thursday Eric took the day off and we were able to spend the day as a family bowling, going to the Library (my kids love it there) and eating ice-cream.

Friday morning we headed to Charlevoix and took the ferry boat over to Beaver Island - Eric's family's summer vacation spot. Spring had somewhat reached the Island, however the day before we arrived it snowed 6 inches. The weather was a bit "blustery" however we enjoyed meeting with couples and singles about Ecuador. On Sunday we were asked to speak at a Christian church on the Island which was well received. We headed back to the mainland and headed home from there.

It was a fun week and every time we have opportunity to talk with others about Ecuador we get more excited about going. The Lord needs to take care of a couple more things before we can go. -our home for one. It continues to be on the market - we had one walk through last week. Our funding for two - we have several families/couples that have expressed interest which we are thankful for. Please remember to send in your pledge cards or give on-line if the Lord has led you to do so. We can't go to training this summer unless we are at 85%. I like to plan in advance so this has been a time of building patience for me. I know His timing is best. However, I also know myself and the not knowing can drive me a little nutty at times! NO comments on that please! :)

Thank you for your continued support of our family!

If you would like to hear more about what we will be doing, we are having a dessert night this Saturday at a friends home at 7:00pm. Leave us a response on this blog, send us an email, or give us a call and we can send you directions.
