The Farrans

A couple weekends ago my "South Africa" family (the Farran's) came to visit TJ and I. This is the family I lived with for 9 months while contributing to their ministry. God has used them to change my life, and teach me many things. It was a blessing for me to have them stay the night and spend some time with us in our own home here in Cocoa, Florida.
It was so nice to see my good friend Heather, and her husband Kyle, we played Settlers of Catan, and had a blast talking. Abby and Emily have gotten older, and changed in good ways, but it was not hard to start where we left off. TJ entertained the girls by having drumming sessions, playing in the park, and teaching them how to get fruit out of the tree with long bamboo polls... that's TJ for you. Of course they grew to like him very quickly.
I hope that my relationship with this family can continue for a life time.
Thank you Farrans for taking the time to come spend time with us.

17 weeks

This has been a hard week, not because I have felt so sick, but because I have had the worst head aches of my life... ones that don't go away, they last for days. Anyway, that has dissipated for the most part, but definitely was not fun.
