Quote of the Day: A baby is born with a need to be loved...and never outgrows it. - Frank A. Clark
Our Australian missionary friend, Samantha Archer, came over yesterday afternoon for a visit. She brought her new baby boy, Joash. Joash is the fifth child of Samantha's, all under ten years old and all with Biblical names. He was born in Kenya but is an Australian by birth. Karen just had to hold him (see picture at right) and so did I. There is nothing that generates warmth in your heart like holding a new life in your arms. I remember holding all three of my sons when they were born and that feeling never goes away. We had a wonderful visit and showed off Karen's new toaster. Today, John went over to the Santa Caryn Pierce Academy to get permission to build permanent soccer goals next to the church. The pastor was very happy to give his blessing to this new form of evangelism. Also, as promised, here is the website link to see the 30 pictures (works of art, I think) that John took of the children of the new school and the pastor and teachers.
