Home fun!

For Oliver's bday his family gave him a Wii...I admit I was hesitant at first but it is so fun and popular (which our house has never been so lively with different peers and students!). This next week we are staying with one of the junior girls as her parents go to a conference. The family has been here for 14 years and it is amazing to hear their stories of Jesus working in Hungary. The junior girl and Pam meet one on one to disciple and talk so we're really looking forward to being there for the week.

ELL students

Oliver is blessed to be teaching the high school English Language Learner program. He just loves being with the international students, so eager to learn and to build relationships. This week one of our students is leaving back to China for the semester, Stella. Please pray for her as she goes back to grandparents for the 6 months. We are all going out to dinner on Tuesday for a good-bye party at a Middle Ages restaurant. This is a sad part of our school, so may students and teachers coming and going. In a sense we get us to it, but we just pray that God will continue to have good relationships built at the school even for the short while we have them. It makes us excited for the great Reunion in Heaven someday.

End of the Year

(This is Gil Beom, one of our middle school students from Korea. He is in my class dressed like Joash!)

We are thankful for the many blessings the Lord has given us. The last of the year was full of hardships, blessings and family. Hungary is now home for us and we are back in the swing of things at school. Oliver just had his first home game and they won, yeah! Our Bible studies are getting started and we are glad to be back in Europe. A highlight of our quick time in America was seeing Bibb and Amy get married along with seeing all our family. Please continue to pray for us as we adjust back to life here in Hungary.
