Our flurry of visits started off when our friend, Brittnee was in town for the Sidewalk Prophets concert. The next day she came over to say hi to Faith and to hand-deliver the gift she bought for Faith when she was in Disney World.
Faith was so happy to see her and of course continues to ask when Brittnee is coming over again.
Another friend who came up to visit drove all the way from Kansas with her husband and her sister. She and her husband got to share with Faith that there is a baby in Kimberly's tummy! We are so happy for them and we know that Kimberly is going to be a great mom! She took such good care of Faith for us when she lived here and it was with Kimberly that Faith started playing with her doll and together they named her Baby Allie.

We had lots of laughs living together and I pretty much survived my first two years of college on their cooking! I really hope we can all get together more often!
Not too long ago, some friends of ours moved from Sidney, Montana to Washburn and we have been planning on driving there to visit them. We did manage to make the 35 mile trip this past Saturday and had a blast seeing them!
I brought some dresses and a coat that Faith had outgrown for Aubryn and Rob managed to round up some Lego for the boys. They are quite an amazing family as Greta home-schools all of them and the older kids are involved in Junior Bible Quiz.

They had some great stories including the bus getting stuck on a dry riverbed bottom and the story about Barbara talking to the animals - the crow that quacked and also the goats.
There were also sad stories too as Barbara hand-fed a little baby who hadn't eaten for two days simply because the family had no food. Their mission had been to build a church for a tribal people living in a village called Korr, outside of Nairobi, Kenya. They accomplished their mission and over 400 people came to the Lord.
