Sammy Morris

While our family was in the States we drove through Fort Wayne, IN and stopped to see the grave site of Sammy Morris.  If you have never read his story I would encourage you to do so.  You can get his biography for just cents on Amazon.  Sammy was a simple African boy, but he led more people to the Lord than most of us. His was a simple but real confidence in his God and a living, vibrant relationship with the Creator. Our oldest son sat spell-bound as we read through the book.

Just thought I would share a picture of our little girl!

A couple of weeks ago we decided to try a road we had not previously been on.  Well, near the end of the road we came to a large muddy place.  Our choices were to turn around and go all the way back or try to go through.  We decided to try to go through.....  Unfortunately we didn't get very far.  Thankfully some friends came and pulled us out.

We're Back

We arrived back in South Africa on May 25th.  We have occupied ourselves with unpacking, doing maintenance around the house and trying to rest.  The day after we arrived Gwen had a miscarriage on our way home from Johannesburg.  She ended up spending a night in the hospital.  Two of the boys also started vomiting that same week.  Our return has been quite eventful but we submit to the will of God knowing what He allows is always for the good. 

We will try to update when possible though at this point I'm not going to promise that it will be consistently or frequent. 

God bless!
