Back At Mom And Dad's

We had maybe the best two weeks at the shore EVER. Beautiful weather, perfect ocean and I mean - perfect ocean, so much fun time with family. *

And now here it is, almost September and in 24 days we'll be heading back to India.

We had four speaking/sharing opportunities while on vacation and one yesterday as well. This week is booked with a few more and a doctor's appointment. Deep breath.

E. and C. still have lots of chapters in all their school subjects to complete before we go back to India and I have to teach E. long division. 'nuf said.

On Vacation - Again

We're leaving tomorrow for 2 weeks at the beach for our real vacation. I know, hard life. We do have 3 speaking engagements during it - so, you know, no rest for the weary - and we are pooped!

P. On A Rainy Day At The Beach

One of the things O. and I both love about traveling around to different churches are the - different churches. We had last minute 2 night speaking engagement come up this week at the Jersey Shore - not bad. It was a totally new location for us and many new faces but a great blessing.

It was at a small church - more like a fellowship - with a colorful group of brothers and sisters in the Lord, but we loved it. One of the things I loved the most about the church was their way of greeting guests. They had us come forward before the message and then whoever wanted to laid hands on us and prayed. They did it both nights and we were truly blessed. It's something I'd like us to start in home church in India.

Beach Babies

O. & the girls. Couldn't keep E. out of the ocean.

C. in the ocean.

P. - First day in the sand. She LOVED it. A True Beach Baby.


On Sunday afternoon we got a phone call that there was a speaking opportunity for O. at a church in Wildwood, NJ on Wednesday and Thursday of this week. The original speaker dropped out for some reason.

Well, we accepted and got 2 free nights at a hotel at the New Jersey Shore this week. That's fun.

We're also going back to the Jersey Seashore (Long Beach Island - again) on Saturday.

Sadly, all this wonderful time at the shore puts a bad crunch on my workweek. My main work being getting Indian visa applications for three of my four children. Gotta get it done before I get to the shore or it won't happen til September and that is waaaaaay too late for comfort.

Long Beach Island

Heading down the shore today for a week with the whole (and I mean WHOLE) family. It's going to be a week to remember - lot's of memories to be made.

I'm still without Internet connection at home - hence the lack of blogging etc... sorry.
