feeling the pain

So I am up early- have been up since 4 am feeling frustrated for my friends in Germay who are awaiting their loved ones. I feel their excitement, and frustration as well. My heart hurts for them.
I took some bowling pictures of us on our league last night. Thats right we are on a bowling league. It mainly for fun, and we get to mingle with Dodds teachers. Pictures will be in my next blog.
I have to be able to think straight before I can do that. Right now I am coherent enough to write thats about it.

Argh- maybe sleep will come soon. I have a Christmas tea to do in 4 hours. So maybe not!

A new adventure

This is our attempt to blog on a regular basis. Welcome to our blog.
We are having the most amazing time here in Germany. Wow!
Our first Christmas where we can decorate our own home and start traditions of our own.
The first began with Thanksgiving when we had our German Neighbors over. We did this for a few reasons.
First, to build relationships within our community, and second to share the Gospel with them. As we began the meal, we stopped and gave thanks the God, who is the creator of all,and giver of all blessings. We shared the history of Thanksgiving. One of our neighbors had some questions for Dan as they were gather food for their plates.

My parents are coming on the 19th here for Christmas this year and staying till the 28th, We are so excited to have them here as this is their first time in Germany as well as in a Military community.

Dan's mom is coming on the 31st to visit and help with the kids program for our conference in Garmish in January. We are so excited to have her here and blessed by her ability to work with children.
