Kingdom of Heaven on stage

These are the videos we crave...we long for...they tell us there is a wonderful God who created each child as an example of what heaven will be like... for the kingdom of heaven is such as these... Praise the Lord!!!


Yet another wonderful example of how wonderful it is to stand for our Christ who died on the cross for us... It is great to see another person standing on Christ rather than an applause from the WORLD.

Easter with friends

We were with the Workman family for Easter...they took us in, provided eggs and food and fellowship. They kept us smiling and full of fun...it was great to meet her parents and their friend..Pacari..

Roller coasters...fun

Mona hit the rides with Noah...it was good to see her having fun.
We hit Holiday Park Saturday. One of the cool things...you can pull a lever on the cannon and it makes a loud boom...the people don't see it coming... and water shoots up over the boat as if they were just missed... it was fun.

Food in Germany... sausage, potatoes, fries,

Park provides sanity

One great thing about being in a foreign country...the parks. Most of them would never pass in America because of law suits for safety. We try to hit this park every night to get the hotel jitters out... It is a blast.

Spring Break in the hotel

Got to hand it to Mona...she had the family together in the hotel everyday for a week....during Spring Break. Well, she took them to town to eat..a lot. They had a blast...she did good. We only have a few more weeks left in the hotel...and looking forward to moving to a house...

Vunder...mentor, friend..pro baseball player

When he arrived on Okinawa, Vunder (left), had a huge smile, took our family in as his and became one of the greatest friends I could ever have. He had a dream to make the big leagues...he did, in Japan. He spent some time teaching Brandon and Anthony. He is a wonderful guy, who will be a huge witness for Christ in Japan through baseball. Love you man. Here is his blog.. http://robsfieldofdreams.blogspot.com/

Castle visit...simply wonderful

Heidelberg, Castle
Brandon and Anthony..the original muscle men

The beautiful streets on a spring day
Behind the castle on the garden...run and run and enjoy Spring
The chapel in the castle...
A view from the Heidelberg bridge..

Spring is is the air...and we enjoyed it...finally. Cherry blossoms, lunch at a Japanese restaurant, walking through Heidelberg, visiting a castle...and they family loved it. One month in the hotel...and this is better than just a visit...it is what the doctor ordered....
Just watched Selena the movie again...I never knew that her dad couldn't find a job, that they were stuck in a house with 13 kids, that they were destined to hit it..but in the middle of it all the encouraging thing was the Dad kept saying he saw something in his family.... WOW
