"does strawberry milk come from strawberry cows?"

but we discovered that we can pick strawberries
this year at one of our favorite local dairy farms!

ah....the scent of ripe berries
mixed with farm smells of all kinds...
just magical.

Gracie said the cows were 
"too big & stinky"

Quinn & his best buddy

who can milk the fastest?
(why is EVERYTHING always 
a contest with boys???)

little miss

Erin & our friend Ruthie

someone was meticulously
slow & methodical in her picking

He is risen indeed

"oh great beautiful Rescuer, Jesus Christ
overcame on a tree all our sin
death no longer maintains any hold on Him
we as well, resurrected with Him"

five sleeps

we did it.
we made it 6 whole days & 5 whole
nights last week without Brian.
(We told Gracie...only five sleeps
& Daddy will be home!)
He was on a mission trip with a group
from church at one of our partner
ministries in Haiti.
There was life change for everyone -
an unforgettable trip.
Physical labor was done, children
were loved on, physical healings &
spiritual healing also as many gave
their lives to Jesus as their Savior.

We're so glad to have him home.
We're loving the stories, and
loving our time together!!

You can check out our wonderful partner ministry
The love of the Father is all over their work,
and He has done incredible things for them.

the team

pastor Gary Hyppolite (on the left)
such a man of God

church under the mango trees

look at that hunky man on the left!

they were able to put a new metal roof on
one of the buildings in 90* weather, no less!

some people waited in line 2 days
for the dental clinic.

have mercy - are those faces
precious, or what?!

Brian said he's never seen poverty
like this in his life.

ahh...a day of relaxing for the team

look @ that clear water
(and that clearly handsome man!)

Blessed be his glorious name forever;
    may the whole earth be filled with his glory!
Amen and Amen!

Psalm 72:19
