Week #5

  It's hard to believe this was our 5th week here in Tanzania....Time is flying by on our end!! It seems like yesterday I was writing week 4...This week has been fun! There is a couple that are here from Maine (Jeff and Kathy). Jeff and John have been working all week building fence posts and now they are at the land putting it all together. They are both hard workers and really want to get this project done quickly!! Kathy has been so much fun to hang out with. The girls love her and we have had fun adventuring!!

   Saturday Morning we took a little adventure. Jill needed a ride to her land to talk to the men who were building her fence so we decided to all load up and go with her and John. So in the front seat of the truck was John (driving), Gaudencia, Presley, and Hope. In the back seat of the truck was Brooklyn, Noella, Acaicia, and Jillian....So where did the women sit...We decided we would take the peacful ride up to the property....We rode in the bed of pick-up!! We had a good time bouncing around and soaking up the WARM Tanzanian sun!! Its funny how here in Africa just running up the street can turn into a fun adventure. We just have to be willing to put a smile on our faces and have fun in everything we are doing!!

  Last week we were asked to come help with a camp they were having on Saturday afternoon for Grade 7 at the school we have been working with. So we got a babysitter and went to the camp.They were having a prophetic camp for the kids. It was such a wonderful experience for the kids. They had stations set-up and the kids went through the stations in groups of two. There were three stations...A joy station where they had the kids tell the Leader lies the enemy had been telling them and they just laughed at the devil..Then they came to our station which was just prayer, anointing with oil, and prophetic words...after that they came to us they went to a prophetic art station!! It was so neat to see this group of missionaries really pour into the next generation!!! God really used us during our station. We really spoke into their destiny's and they were very encouraged!!
   Well I know most of you saw on facebook, but John really made our valentines day special. He really proved to me that it doesn't matter where in the world you are you can have a wonderful celebration! He surprised me with roses and took me up the mountain to a hotel for dinner. Then we went by a cafe' and picked up a piece of chocolate cake!! We couldn't have had such a special evening without Jeff, Kathy, and Mama Nesma!! They so sweetly kept all four kids so we could go!! THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  Well God has been faithful to show us so many things during this season and we have been so blessed by his presence that has continually stregthend us over the last few weeks! We know he is going to continue to reveal many more things to us as we seek him during this amazing season of our lives!! We love all of you and are so thankful for you!!
P.S. Presley told me yesterday that she likes Africa better than home...I always knew she was going to be a missionary!! I can't wait to see what all God has in store for our kids!!
