Sonidos Serranos

Sonidos Serranos: Sounds of the Sierras...
Reflecting some of my family's interests: God's wonderful creation (especially mountains and hills!), music, and language...

Psalm 121:1-2 (NASB)

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From where shall my help come?
My help comes from the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.

Trying to catch up – again!

I found it amusing that when I typed sonidos serranos blog into the search bar, the first entry that showed up was one from late summer last year entitled Trying to catch up... (Sigh...) That seems to be the story of my life these days...

Were temporarily back (again) in the Upstate – trying to adjust to the humidity as we work on organizing our belongings with a view toward a permanent move to Uruguay!

You can read our spring ministry report on our ministry blog. Overall, we remain encouraged in this stage of ministry God is giving us among North American churches. Do pray for us!

Elizabeth finished kindergarten on May 25, and we have since begun homeschooling her first-grade studies. A strength of her early elementary school experience continues to be geography! Please continue to pray that our children would faithfully follow Jesus.

Our most recent travels took us back to The West! We logged over 7K miles (i.e. spent many, many hours in the car!) and had some bonus educational and memory-making times as a family as well. Internet time tended to be limited for me, but I am planning to do some catch-up posts...

Thank-you for reading – and, most of all, for continuing to pray for our extended family. Random moments are often hardest...

In the spirit of catching up, here are some recent family snapshots:

Celebrating 13 years of marriage on July 16!

JM just finished an intense two weeks of D.Min. classes today, so he’s planning a real date” for later. Meanwhile we managed to squeeze in a family outing to our favorite little restaurant, The Pita House. And, yes! DJM really is trying a sip of very strong Arabic coffee! He loved it – just like his sister did (but she was slightly older).

Celebrando el 18 de julio... ¡Viva Uruguay!

Celebrating our multi-cultural Little People!
We love em – lots and lots and lots!

Elizabeth is turning into an avid reader. As you might guess, DJM can be mischief personified! He loves to try to do whatever she’s doing; that’s his latest artwork in the background.

Great update! Love how much DJM looks like JM at that age! ;-)

I, too, love the similarity. Hardly a day goes by that I don't mention it! :o)

Awww! I can't believe how big DJM is! Can't wait for him to meet my little mischief maker. ;o)
