“We always pray for you, and we give thanks to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ”
First of all, we would like to thank God for all of you who always support us in friendship, prayers, finances, and with encouraging e-mails. We are so grateful that God brought all of you in our life. Thank you for being our supporters.
Secondly, we would like to thank God for giving us a great time visiting Dave’s brother and his family in North Carolina (Oct 8-10). Also, we are so thankful to God that we could attend the wedding of our friends, Fletch & Amy in Raleigh, NC (Oct 9).
Dave and Helen were able to go to Cincinnati, OH to celebrate Dave’s Birthday (Oct 15) and went to a concert of a Christian Band. We were so thankful for Dave’s Mom and Grandma who were willing to be with Abigail while we were away.
We were able to attend Explore Wycliffe in Akron, OH (Nov 6) and we are ready to move forward with our application process. We spent the rest of the weekend visiting friends in nearby Ashland, OH.
We would like to thank God for his love, mercy, blessings, health and provisions in our life. God always show his wonderful mercy and faithful to us and to our family here in the States and in Indonesia.
This year, Abigail had a wonderful time at her first “Trick-or-Treat”, going house to house with her friends collecting candies. She dressed up as a princess, however, she didn’t recognized her friends and gave weird looks to everybody. She was nervous when we approached a house, but then she wanted to walk down the street by herself.
It was so cold when the sun went down but she didn’t want to quit. She had her first candy which was colored red (because it was strawberry) and that gave her the “crazy” and “wild” reaction. Then the next day, we dressed her again to go to see her grandmother and great grandmother.
So thankful to our friends, Josh & Jayme, who invited us to bring Abigail that night. and took some of her pictures. We all had a great time of fun together.
Our praise to God that Abigail is growing healthy. Her curiosity drives her to learn more and more pretty much everything she sees, hears, smells, or touches. She is developing and improving her ability to communicate in English, Spanish and Indonesian. Now, she likes to play pretending with her dolls, throwing and kicking ball, and loves making animal sounds. Will she likes the snow? We’ll see what she thinks about it.
