"And if you SPEND YOURSELVES on behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness and your night will become like the noonday."

"The Lord will continually guide you. He will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail."- Isaiah 58:10-11

Fun at the Coast!

We returned late last night from our 3 day trip to the Indian Ocean!  What an incredibly beautiful place!  We had a great time planning and preparing for our trip out to the Trans Mara and just relaxing and having fun with our family and friends.  We head out to the Mara in the morning... We are so so excited!!!

Some of the eventful experiences we had:

On the evening we arrived we were playing in the ocean as the tide came in.  Katie and Piper were stung by jellyfish!  Fortunately some vinegar provided by the kitchen staff took away the pain!  (Sorry the picture is crooked - I can't get it to upload straight)

We had monkeys come visit us outside our room!  We loved watching them - especially the babies - and were very glad we had closed our patio doors that morning!  

We also went snorkeling and saw the most amazing, beautiful, and unusual things.  Nate has the pictures on his camera so I can't upload any for you to see here but we'll show you a sea spider, a red polka-dotted starfish, and some sea urchins when we get back!  

Rick will post on the cool beach God moment we had the day we left...

Thank you for the update. The coast sounds so beautiful! I can't wait to see the pictures. I remember snorkeling in Hawaii and being in awe of God's creativity!! Thank you for the specific prayer requests. I will continue to cover all of you in prayer and I can't wait to hear about your time at the orphanage.
