We recently found out that we are having a boy! Caleb is so excited to have a brother and Abigail is happy for a baby. Caleb asks us often when the baby will arrive. We cannot wait to meet this new little one late March 2010!

We need your help!
Our entry way is lined with materials for remodeling the bathroom on the first floor of our Missions Center, but we can't use any of it until we get some new tools.
Two items we need to continue working are a Rotary Hammer and a Drill.
Would you consider helping us with a donation?
A rotary hammer will cost about $250.
A drill will cost about $150.

So back to the children. I love being home with Caleb and Abigail. With the exception of going to the orphanages on Thursdays, I am home with them every day. Caleb is a talker, I wish you could hear him. Abigail is saying more words but mainly babbles. They are best friends. Of course, they have their moments but generally get along well. If Abi wants to play quietly by herself,sometimes Caleb gets upset and offended that she won't play with him.
Abigail loves to get into their drawers and take out their clothes. Then she tries to dress herself. Imagine her with Caleb's shirt on her head. They play so well together that when I was not in the room, Caleb took his scissors and gave Abigail a haircut or "hair crash" as he and Jon call it. I came back in to find her happily sitting on the desk while Caleb "trimmed her bangs". I now have a sandwich sized bag filled with hair. Caleb had just gotten a haircut the weekend before and must have enjoyed it enough to help Abigail get one too. You should have seen Jonathan's face.
Today at breakfast, Caleb told he wanted to see God's face. Lately when he prays,he asks God to put a baby in my tummy. Isn't that sweet? Our friend is pregnant and Caleb tells her ,"I want to play with your baby and he/she needs to come out and play with us".
It is late here so off to sleep. Goodnight/ Good day to you. =)

Happy Resurrection Day! Here in Russia,Easter Sunday is not until this coming Sunday.
Yesterday,since Jon was sick, we had our own family church.
Caleb loves when we have family church. Jon and I read from a children's book of Bible stories about Palm Sunday, the Last Supper and Calvary. Caleb was interested and Abigail sat there trying to take all the books. When we spoke about Jesus dying, Caleb was quick to say that He is alive now.
Caleb amazes me with his comments and memory. He is my little helper and tells me everyday on his own that he loves us, his baby sister, Abigail and God. Abigail lights up when Jon comes home from work,he can barely get his coat and shoes off fast enough for her to be picked up.
