It's a New Day

First, we are excited about being back in Guatemala City where the computer is ours, and we can figure out the keyboard easily! Praise God for the small things. Also, we have computer access again and are eager to keep in touch with our family and friends back home!

We were sad to leave our faith family at the airport today...they have been such a blessing to our family. What a HUGE blessing they were to us at Eagle's Nest. We are so thankful for Jim and Donna Houston, Brianna Labello, Keith Stanley, Robin Roberts and family, and the Mitchell clan (Rick, Lisa and Spencer). They blessed our socks off every day, and we are forever indebted to them.

Speaking of indebted, we have AMAZING friends. Just yesterday, we sent an email asking them for help undecorating our house. We've learned that Jett needs things kept simple for a while....the more simple, the better. So, our friends, the Waltmans, Hardys and Irelands trudged to our house and undecorated it amazing is that! We love you guys and can't thank you enough for your friendship.

I'm posting a few pictures today and will have even more tomorrow. We took Jett to the mall today, and he was amazed. His eyes were SO big as he took everything in. He was especially captivated by the escalator. He also loved the huge bathroom in the lobby of our hotel. He wanted to continue to flush the potty just to watch funny! It's amazing to see what God is doing in his heart and ours everyday.

We love him so much, and he is a perfect fit for our family. God has molded us all together in a special way, and we have never known such a completeness. Praise be to the Father who is the author of all good things.
