Josh bought his own Côte d'Ivoire soccer outfit today

If you aren't wearing orange, white, and green (the colors of the Ivorian flag) on this week, you really stand out against the colorful crowd. People are even wearing colored wigs and draping Ivorian flags over their cars. It is quite exciting to see everybody so happy and enthusiastic.

John promoted to specialist

Specialist E4

We just got off the phone with John. He is happy about his promotion to Army Specialist. He is also making plans for his vacation in July. The Army ships their soldiers wherever they want for their vacation. So John found a reasonably priced Army sponsored hotel in Hawaii! Pray for him as he works out the final details.
