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.


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.

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


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.

Our New Home (Outside)

Well, here are a few photos of the outside of our new home. We are in an apartment complex that has 16 units. We are on the 1st floor all the way to the left of the building, apartment #101 (see top right photo). The picture on the bottom right corner is our view from our patio. The bottom left is the grass yard that the boys can play on. The bottom center photo is a picture of our patio from the seawall. To me, the best part about this place is its proximity to Comprehensive Park. If you look in the middle right picture you'll see two ladies about to enter into the park. We are soooo close; it's incredible! God blessed us beyond what we ever would have dreamed of. Thank you Lord! (If you click on the collage it will give you a larger picture.)
