we had a wonderful time studying the gospel of Mark this afternoon with Javi and Maite. After Mark we all went to the park for a walk together; I was reminded of how much I enjoy the Spanish evening "paseo"; our park was filled with families - - moms pushing baby prams, the grandparents sitting on benches, fathers kicking soccer balls to their boys in the grass - - everyone was out!

One of Maite and Javi's boys, Sergio, (almost 4 years old) brought his bicycle, and had Malachai put his feet on the training wheel bars and his arms around Sergio's waist as Sergio peddled; what a pair! they were so cute; I wish I had thought to bring my camera! next time . . .

Dear Naomi,

I can just imagine how cute and animated Malachai was with his friend on the bike. Josu looks adorable - in these pictures I can see a little of "Malachai" in him.

We continue to pray for your ministry in Spain.

I'm sure Rachael came back rested and ready to start her life in Spain again.

Love,

Grandma

Hi Sweetie! So glad your mom gave me your "blog site." This way I will know how to pray for you and your family, as well as get to know your husband and children. :-) Please say
hello to all, esp. to Rachel.
In church this eve. your mom was sharing a prayer request for your friends who are co-laborers in the Lord and whose child recently went to be wilth the Lord. When she said the last name of the of your friends I immediatly asked if it was Luke and Jodi. It turns out that they are friends with my brother Henry for many many years. Please give them our regards, and we will be in prayer for them. My heart goes out to them.
Please note my email address:

May our Lord continue to richly bless you and your beautiful family.
It was good to meet your husband the last time I saw you. He is perfect for you. He is also a very blessed man to have you as a wife!

Take care Sweetie.
In Christ's Love,
Vida
