A few months ago Summer told me about a website for cloth diapers for Sadie. Now to be honest when she first said this I was thinking NO WAY! All I thought about was how hard it would be and inconvienent! And I had heard stories about how moms had stuck their babies with pins (I wont mention any names Mrs Kaye!) So needless to say I wasnt very interested. But then I realized how much diapers would be here in Honduras so George and I decided to reconsider! Summer told us that her friends in another country applied for a grant at this website and received many diapers and supplies for free. This website had blessed many missionaries and their families! We applied and received the grant!! We were so excited and a little nervous. When we opened the box we werent sure what to expect-but there were no pins! These cloth diapers are easy to assemble and easy to clean. And very comfortable for Sadie! They adjust with snaps so that they will fit her the entire time that she will be in diapers! We use them and love them! Having these diapers have totally changed the way we thought it would be to use cloth diapers! It has been such a blessing and has already saved us money! The website is cottonbabies.com and they have been such a blessing to our family!

Elias and Sadie are still growing fast! Its hard to believe how fast time goes by!
Now continuing with the updates of Honduras:
In July Taryn Stevens joined us on the Property as an intern. We had a great time and learned alot from one another. She first taught English a few times at a school, she helped me around the Property and with Elias, and a few other ministry things. It was a blessing to have her there and to see her heart for missions. Please pray for her as she obeys Gods guidence in her life. A few weeks before we left to come to the States Norma, Taryn and I started a womens Bible Study! The first week we had over 20 women and lots of kids! We had a fun time a it was great to be able to meet some of the women around the Property (some women walk over an hour to be there!) I am looking forward to getting back and fellowshiping with Norma and these women again! Please pray for these meetings as we get to know the women and that we will have sweet fellowship as we study God's Word.
The work-men and Evis are doing alot of projects around the Property. We have seen a few pictures and they look great. We look forward to getting back and checking everything out!
We had a blessed Thanksgiving , Christmas and New Year and are so thankful that we were able to spend those days with family!

We moved into our house-we love it, it is beautiful and more than we deserve!
We have had a few more groups-all of which have been great! God has really blessed each group. please continue to pray for the people that the groups ministered to, that they will desire to have a true relationship with God and grow in that relationship.
Our daughter was born-Sadie is here!!! Praise the Lord she is healthy and everything went smoothly! Thank you to all who prayed for us. God has blessed us greatly! (If you have Facebook there are pictures of her in the photo album that Kylie put on my page)
We are trying to work something out with the whole internet thing. We miss not being in touch with everyone but at our house the internet does not work. Hopefully we will figure out something soon.
We love you guys very much!!

This past Saturday, Norma and I had a chance to go to a women’s meeting at our church. This meeting included women from at least seven different churches. A lot of the women walked over an hour in the rain to be at this meeting. The idea of these gatherings is for the women of the churches to know that we are one body in Christ. That we serve together for the furthering of the Gospel and that we are to encourage one another. I was the only gringa there and I had a great time. It was very encouraging to see that these women were taking the initiative to live out what the Word says. We played a few “get to know each other” games and we laughed all the way through them! When I say this you have to be able to know the women from here. Usually they are shy and quiet (especially the women from the villages). One game that we played was we got into groups of about 10 and we each stated our names and the church we attended. Then in front of the whole group your specific group would act out an animal while the others guessed your animal. One group was chickens, one was monkey, mine was cow (yes cow, me being eight months pregnant I played it perfectly J ) To see the smiling and laughing was awesome! Some of the older ladies with their aprons on and do-rags in the hair laughing at themselves and each other was great! Then one of the men leaders from our church gave a devotion. He shared from Phil. 2:1-4, 1 John 3:17-18. We had a great time and the best thing about it is we are going to have these meetings monthly! Each time at a different church. I ask that you would be praying for these gatherings. There were a few women from the Catholic church-pray that they will see the truth of the Gospel. Pray for the women-they leave responsibilities at home-pray that their husbands will encourage them to come. And pray for unity within the women that we will work together as the Body of Christ to share the Gospel to those around us. The focus Scripture for this month was Psalm 133:1 “Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity!”
