A few snaps from Liberty's birthday party

Eight years old!


Someone accidentally bought relight candles and Liberty
 could not get them to stay blown out


We have a family tradition of "buttering the nose"!
Daddy used some of the chocolate icing
and Liberty is licking it off


What she thought of her clair cake!




Not sure how the ranch dressing bottle got into
this picture, but for those of you who may be wondering
Robert did NOT eat any of it on his cake.


We love you Liberty Grace!
And are so thankful for the fun and
smiles you bring to our family!

After two very dry winter months we finally got some snow

......Fifteen Inches!

"God thundereth marvelously with His voice;
great things doeth He, which we cannot comprehend.
For He saith to the snow, Be thou on the earth;.."
Job 37: 4, 5a
"..wash me and I shall be whiter than snow."
Psalm 51: 7
"..though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow..."
Isaiah 1:18

Merry Christmas!

 from the Taconet family
"And she shall bring forth a Son, and thou shalt call
his name JESUS: for He shall save His people from their sins.
Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled, which was spoken
of the Lord by the prophet, saying.
Behold a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they
shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is,
God with us." Matthew 1: 21-23

      Leah and I have returned from our Ghana mission and are so thankful to be home with our family and friends again! We were unable to do any posting the last several weeks we were over there so I will attempt to catch everyone up over the next week or two. We were so grateful for the opportunity to visit the Mole National Wildlife Park which was about a four-and-a-half hour trip over extremely rough roads, but very well worth it!
The Northern region of Ghana is primarily Muslim in religion
We passed several traditional African villages
The roads were unbelievably rough,
but they told us that they were better than the last time!
Finally There!

And the past part- 
Standing forty feet from a wild African Elephant!


Returning to our hotel we found these guys
enjoying the shade- under our van!

"And God saw everything that He had made,
and behold, it was very good."

Good-Morning from Ghana!

I apologize for being so inconsistent with our posting, but we are both doing very well and staying busy in the various ministries God has given us while over here. Today makes exactly three more weeks of our stay in Ghana! Here are some pictures to let you in on what we have been doing.
 Leah's nail polish was quite a hit with the Junior girls!
I'm not sure how many finger and toe nails
she actually did on that afternoon!
This is Francisca, a four year old from the girl's home

This precious little thing is one of the teacher's daughters

A student that posed for his picture just before Bible time!

Some of the girls I do devotions with
A glimpse of Africa!

"And whatsoever ye do in word or deed,
do all in the name of the Lord Jesus,
giving thanks to God and the Father by Him."
Colossians 3:17
