Company and Changes

COMPANY: Our internet has been down since last week, so I haven’t been able to post, but we’ve been busy with company the past few days. We found out on Thursday that Gabriel’s swim gala was canceled because the government didn’t want to pay the expenses. We’d planned to take the kids to a movie after the meet since Petersburg (an hour a way) is the nearest theater and decided to go anyway. Both Gabriel and Mariah had friends over to spend the night, so Saturday morning we headed for Petersburg and enjoyed Night at the Museum with a happy meal afterwards. This was a great treat for the kids since we don’t have movies or McDonalds nearby and we all really enjoyed the time together.

Saturday afternoon, on our way home, we picked up a Peace Corp friend of ours. She spent the night and we all enjoyed lasagna and good fellowship.

CHANGES AHEAD: This year has brought some changes to our family life with all the kids going to the same school in Tzaneen, a town about 15 minutes away. Between the cost of gas, the kid’s school activities, and the fact that everything we do (including grocery shopping) is in Tzaneen, we finally made the decision to call a friend of ours who is a realtor. The good news is that we made a good investment in our current house that should allow us to afford a place in Tzaneen. Please pray for us as we look into this possibility, as a move of any kind is time consuming.




  1. Hey Lisa, sorry about Gabriel - must have left him feeling very frustrated, but well done to him anyway. I see that you had Kieran and Julia over - so nice to see familiar faces.

    You should have bought our house!!!!! But I agree the move to Tzaneen would probably be a good idea - lots less travelling. We will trust that you will experience God's awesome favour in selling your house and finding a new home.

    Love you guys.

    Be good

  2. Sounds like a great decision. The only bummer is moving---again. I'm praying for you guys. And maybe you'll have a more regular internet service if you move.

  3. Okay, you copycat. *wink* Just because I'm moving... LOL Seriously, I am praying that God leads y'all to the perfect home for you and yours. What an adventure!
