We live amongst a tribal group known as the Dem who are located in the mountains of Southeast Asia. We are here to learn their language, translate the Bible into their language, and teach them about God. If you would you like to receive our monthly newsletter, send us an email at:

Klode Park

It's hard to believe that just two weeks ago it was sunny and gorgeous outside. We got Raquel out of school a little early this day and went down to play in the sand.

Here Kristen, a picture of both your nephews:)

Half Day, Honey Acres and Holy Hill

On Monday Raquel had a half day for some odd reason, so when she got home we headed out to Honey Acres. We learned all about bees and how they make honey. We got to taste some honey and then bought some to take home with us. Yum yum!

It was a beautiful day so on the way home we stopped at Holy Hill and walked 187 steps up to the top of the tower to see the beginning of the fall colors.
Raquel did great walking up most of the stairs, but when we got to the last landing she got scared and started crying and saying she wouldn't go anymore. People were passing us and telling her that it was ok and she could do it. I finally got her to calm down and she went up the last few stairs. Everyone at the top cheered for her:)

Picking a Pumpkin

We started the month of October by going to Basses to get a pumpkin and play on the playground.

Raquel loves to daily measure herself against Dylan and me, so she stood very nicely for this picture.
Gideon - not so much
