Family Portraits

My incredibly attractive roommates everyone!

Up first here we have S. She's a really close friend of mine who happens to also be the person the Father has called to come along behind me to serve as the Volunteer Coordinator! It is such a blessing to be able to pass on the reigns here to someone I know and trust. She's a mess load of fun too ;)

Next we have A :) She's living here in the vol house with us as she studying our wonderful language here on the island. She'll head out the same time I will in November to move to another city where she'll also be working with vols.

I love these girls so much! We got to cleaning out the garage here the other day and came across this big tub filled with eye glasses! As you can see from our pictures here...they're pretty amazing ;) We thought we'd print these off and hang them somewhere in the house...

Oh come...

A few things I'm really enjoying right now...

Coffee, and lots of it :) 
I think I'm going to have to reserve an entire suitcase for coffee alone!

And then there are the beautiful rice fields. The mountains and the blue skies and the deep green fields. Oh I wish you all could see it for yourselves...

Oh come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the
 Rock of our Salvation!
 Let us come into His presence with thanksgiving; 
let us make a joyful noise to Him with songs of praise! 
For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods. 
In His hand are the depths of the earth; 
the heights of the mountains are His also. 
The sea is His, for he made it, 
and His hands formed the dry land. 
Oh come,
let us worship and bow down.
