While Adina and the children are on vacation I thought I’d take the opportunity to post a few pictures from me in Iraq.  As you pray for me and my family, please do not forget my brother Joe who is also here – a Marine in another part of the country.

Prayer Breakfast

Last Friday I had the opportunity to attend the National Prayer Breakfast here at the palace in Iraq (once a palace belonging to Sadaam Hussein).  Again, some parts are geared towards the children, but the rest of you will appreciate the architecture inside the palace at least.  I said “Men’s” Prayer Breakfast in the video but the event was gender inclusive (if that doesn’t sound politically correct).  I pray you are all well. 

I am thankful for the fellowship that God has provided here.  I am part of a Men’s Bible Study going through Romans on Monday nights, and about to join another one going through church history on Thursdays!  And of course I go to church before I head to work on Sunday mornings.  Lest you think that all I do is attend religious activities, I still get in my 12 hours of work a day, every day – I am blessed that these activities take place when I’m not at work.

Elijah warms up to cats (Brewster), pigs (Barbie) and other animals

Milking a goat on the Morris Farm, warming up to horses (with cowgirl Aunt Kris)

Elijah couldn’t understand how riding a horse would make him a COWboy – he wanted to ride a cow to be a cowboy! Makes sense to me!

Mimi petting the horse with Corinne (David’s future mother-in-law)

Nothing says “country” like twin John Deere’s

Elijah pretending to be Noah (David and his Beloved fiance, Katelyn in the background) Merry being tickled by a new friend

David, us and his beautiful Katelyn!!!!!

We are going to be vacationing for two weeks starting on Wednesday. . . for those of you in close distance of where we will be, please call and arrange to get together with us if you can – we will still be on our cell phone 843-819-1332

May 14th: Fly to Kansas and drive to uncle David’s in Guthrie, Oklahoma

May 20th or 21st: Drive to Bellevue, Nebraska and visit with old friends

May 25th: Potluck reunion at the Base Lake at 5:00 PM (first pavilion on the left as you enter the park area next to the BIG playground.)  Bring meat for your family to put on the grill (we will have one going) a side and/or dessert to share and whatever your family likes to drink.  Since this will be a true potluck, there is no need to RSVP, so bring yourself, and invite people who may not know, but would like to come.  We have no intention of leaving anyone out!  Of course my superduper party-planning friend Whitney is behind this, so if you have questions or need directions or anything, you can post here, or call her at 402-502-9025.

May 27th or 28th: Return to Kansas to fly back home to Charleston.

Here’s some video to give you some idea of my life in Iraq. It’s mostly geared towards the kids so forgive the banter and the playing with toys. I miss all of you and am thankful for the many blessings of love and fellowship God has lavished upon me, evidenced by His mercy and your many letters and warm greetings. I echo the words of the classic movie, “It’s a Wonderful Life” when I say, “No man is poor who has friends.”
