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.
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.

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 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.

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.
