As I look at the picture above I rejoice in the family God has given me. My precious family, the treasure that God has placed in my hands to guide and disciple. Please keep them in your prayers as they grow. Tanya in now 16 and starting to think about college. She has many choices to make in the next year or two. We are hoping to get her started with classes over the internet and at least let her get some basics finished. Christy is 13 and loves life. She has a servants heart and can be counted on to help whether it is with cookies or cleaning. Josh (9) is starting his personal race. He loves action, mechanics, building, and good stories. Pray that we can guide him into meaningful service for the Lord and that we can help all of them grow in the Lord.

David and Evelyn
I have been asked how David and Evelyn are doing. I would like to give you all a quick up date. David is finishing his last dose of injectable medicine and will start the daily pills in Jan. He is very excited to see the end of the injections with the excessive tiredness after each injection.
The picture shows David and his family before the baby Moses. His kids are named Jonathon, born Sept 11 2001, Lilian, Samuel, and now Moses. Each baby is given a white / Christian name and then a Maasai name. Jonathon and Lilian are in school and Samuel is still at home.
David's house is coming along nicely as well. We have most of the tin on the roof and I bought some ridge caps for the ridge of the roof. We are waiting for them to arrive from Narok. During this wait, I have had my guys patching the holes that are at the top of the wall and in the walls from the forms. Today we started cleaning floors and getting ready to plaster the walls. There are some photos of this in the photo gallery.
Keep them in you prayers as they struggle to get there life started again after this latest bout of depression. God has been good and we are thankful to know them and be able to help them.
