Tohoku Relief Video

This is a video that we showed at the Calvary Chapel Japan Conference. It highlights the four trips that Calvary Chapel Okinawa went on in support of the relief efforts in mainland Japan. This is actually two videos put together in one, the first was put together by Kevin Johnson and Yasutomo Miyagi, and the second was put together by Brian Layton. They did a great job and I told my mom I would post a video if one was made; so here it is.

Please continue to pray for the nation of Japan. They need the hope only the Lord Jesus Christ can provide. Over 125 million Japanese are headed towards eternity separated from the Lord and we as Christians have the answer they need to change their course. Let us seize every moment the Lord gives us. God bless!

Pancake House

Caleb ordered the Chocolate lovers pancakes, loaded with Chocolate chips. Does this guy look happy or what?

Ethan is so cute! This guy had a kids plate, it came with two small pancakes covered in M&M's. But he was so slow in eating it, he was the last one finished. I had to fight off his brothers because they were trying to swipe his M&M's.


I love those sweet faces.

I had the berry pancakes, aren't they beautiful? And they were yummy!


Here we all are. As some of you may know, Glenn spent the last few days in Toyko, for a Pastors/Leaders Calvary Chapel Japan Conference. Normally when Glenn is gone, the boys and I head out to eat for one special date night. Glenn was accually in Mainland Japan three times this month but we kept very busy with school. Ethan, has wanted to go to the Pancake house since his birthday in August but we always managed to go when they are closed. So with a very persistant Ethan, we went to Yomitan's Pancake house.

Jonah and Ethan

Here is my little angel and little money, the nicknames Jonah and Ethan picked for out for themselves.

Settlers Night with Caleb

Sunday evening marked a monumental night for us as we allowed Caleb to play his first game of Settlers. We didn't want to overwhelm him so we played "Settlers Jr." He needed a little bit of help in laying down his initial settlements, but grasped the game quite quickly. He will make a great Padawan, the force is strong with him, and hopefully we can keep him from following his father's footsteps into the darkside.
Glenn won; 10 points.
I was last, third place; 7 points.
Caleb did well, second place; 8 points.

Merry Christmas!


Merry Christmas! I pray you all have a wonderful Christmas as we celebrate the birth of Jesus our Savior.
Prayer request: We will be singing Christmas Carols Wednesday, December 22, in our church neighborhood and inviting them out for a special Christmas party. The party will be on the following day Thursday, the 23rd. Please be in prayer with us. The weather forecast looks like rain on Wednesday, please pray the Lord would hold back the rain. Also pray that our neighbors would come out and hear the good news of Jesus. Pray God would soften their hearts to the gospel and that they would come to know Jesus.

Vacation





God is so good. This month Glenn was blessed to have some time off and we were able to get away for a few days. We were able to rest, relax and enjoy the kids. I didn't take many pictures, sorry mom, but here are some.


The Forbes Visit


Derek, Allison and Adelle



It was such a blessing to have the Forbes here for Thanksgiving. All of my boys fell in love with Adelle and really enjoyed having a little girl in the house. I loved watching them all be gentle with her. Please keep the Forbes in your prayers. They will be working in the Philippines and India this year.





Pictures from November

Caleb working on school, yes, he is always the serious one.

They love their daddy!

Typhoon Chaba




Hey All! Looks like we're finally going to get a typhoon. The typhoon season lasts from July through November and we've only had one storm thus far. This one looks like it may hit us. In case you don't know your Japanese geography very well, Okinawa is the island just north of the eye of the storm. I'm sure we'll be just fine, don't worry about us.

Our family











Mud


Our dear friend Allison took some wonderful pictures of the boys. She found these two guys in the mud after a few days of rain.





We have two empty lots across the street from where we live. Jonah and Ethan love to play in the mud. They can spend hours making dirt balls.










Muddy hands... I know they drive me crazy when they come in the house with them. But I know I will miss them when these boys are all grown up. Thank you Allison for these sweet memories. I love them.

More zoo shots

They are so cute.

Field Trip

When Jonah was done learning about the letter E and Elephants we headed to the Okinawa City Zoo for a field trip. It was a beautiful day and we had lots of fun.
It was great the elephant caretakers had them do a few tricks for us.
We learned that our zoo has two Asian elephants.

The hippo's were out walking around, they are HUGE. I didn't realize they are so big...

Noah and Bekah Barnett joined us. Here is a picture of all the kids.
