Update on Levi's health

"But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us. We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed: perplexed, but not driven to despair, persecuted, but not forsaken:, struck down, but not destroyed...
I feel a little like a clay pot that God is shaping and molding...hopefully in the end to look more like Christ! Yesterday, it was hard for me not to be discouraged when Levi started running a high fever. I think he has the same virus that Abby and I had
last week, so at least I know what to expect. We have set up a make-shift bed in the back of our classroom and Levi has been resting comfortably while he watches movies with a set of headphones. So far we really haven't had to miss anything, so we are grateful for his flexibility.

Luke and Abby are loving it out here. Luke has already started to make friends with some boys his age and both of them could hardly wait to get to their classes this morning. Tomorrow they are taking a field trip to the Focus on the Family headquarters.

We have also been encouraged by a single woman named Joanna. She will be serving in Budapest which is only a few hour train ride away from us once we get to Vienna. She has offered to help with the kids while we are here at MTI, so Brad and I can have a few moments to actually process all that we are learning. We are greatly encouraged by her generousity and her willingness to want to love on us! Thanks for checking in on us and for praying for our family!

Levi lounging all day watching Looney Tunes...over and over again!

Here is Abby with one of her teacher's...Miss Colleen

This is the view when we walk outside...not too shabby eh!
