Seth helped with a fundraiser for the local radio station (one of our teammates does a show on Sunday nights) and Seth’s picture ended up in the local newspaper this week! Today we’ll be putting posters up around town to advertise an event that the church is putting on called “Helping Hurting People”. The speaker is John Stephenson, a strong Christian from Canada who lost his wife and daughter in a car accident in ’93 and ended up writing a book called “From Tears to Triumph”. That will be on March 5th, which just happens to be Seth’s birthday!

We praise God that we have had opportunities to meet several of our neighbors as well. It seems like this neighborhood is going to be a great place to get to know people! We’re probably also going to join the local gym and Jess is going to try out a Mum (I did not misspell that) and toddler club that several locals have recommended to us. They all say it’s a great way to get to know people! Pray for us!

If you’d like to see the whole newspaper, it’s online at
