Thursday, July 30th update

I'm sorry for my delinquency. So much has happened since my last post. First, Nancy sold the truck for a really good price to Carmax. Paise God! Second, the kids are doing better. Other than my niece breaking her elbow a couple of weeks ago, it has been for the most part uneventful. Please pray that they would be able to work through their grief.

Kelly-Jane and I were able a couple of weekends ago to spend some time with them and it was really good. We'll see them again this weekend as we celebrate Swiss National Day (August 1st)!

The most exciting thing is the great idea that the pastor's wife at their church came up with. On August 6th, my MUCH OLDER sister celebrates her 40th birthday. Anyway, the ladies at the church came up with a fabulous idea. They had a suprise gathering at the Jefferson Hotel in Richmond where they unveiled their plan. They organized 40 ladies at the church to give her 40 gifts over a few weeks! So each day, she is surprised by gifts! Great idea isn't it! Praise God for their church and the support! It is a hard milestone to celebrate without Brian.

Pray for some more upcoming things. Please pray for their grief counseling and the heartwrenching chore of going through Brian's stuff that will be upcoming. Thanks for your prayers!
