There have been some demonstrations this week in Abidjan, but we are in no danger. Thanks for your prayers!

Home School

Josh is doing real well. He really enjoys home school. It is working out real good for him. He has renewed his friendships with the African and Lebanese kids here in Abidjan. He is making good progress in his French studies. We are also looking for an Arabic tutor for him and us.

Airborne Rangers

John accepted an invitation to join the Army’s elite Airborne Rangers. He will still be moving on to Iraq in March, as a medic with the Rangers. Our main concern is that he will not have any Ranger training before departing for Iraq. He tells us that the Rangers are the best trained and equipped soldiers in the U.S. Army. Pray for him as he is been studying how to share the Good News with others.

Today was our 22nd anniversary

After all of the celebrations and meals in restaurants with our visitors from the USA, Sue wasn't in the mood to go out to eat again. Instead we had some delicious grilled steaks. They were tender! I gave Sue a gold cross.

Joshua's 8th birthday

We already celebrated it two other times; in Dakar with his friends there and last week with John Porter and our son John who were visiting form the USA. But we celebrated it again today with cake and candles. We invited two of Joshua's friends to ride go-carts with Joshua. Only Ali was free to go, so I rode one of the carts myself. It was a lot of fun!

John's baggage arrived

John said he is not quite ready to report back to Camp Shelby tomorrow. He had a great time with us in Abidjan. Now, with a little jet lag, he returns to work with the Army. Pray for him to stay the course and learn all he needs to know before shipping out for Iraq in March.

John and Sarah made it safely to Jackson, Mississippi

Unfortunately, their suitcases didn't arrive with them. Their flight out of Abidjan was delayed, because of bad weather somewhere, Paris I assume. They said it was good to get some sleep during their flights. The flight from Paris to Dallas took 10 hours.
