"Twas the best of times; twas the worst of times"...As my time with 20 amazing Jewish kids from the "East Coast" (United States not Brazil) concludes, my wife is returning home. I am mixed with emotions of absolute joy at her return and unexpected sadness at their departure. I had a wonderful time learning from, arguing with, laughing at and pouring into a group of kids from a different culture and heading in a different direction and yet so easy to love. I had a difficult time with my wife so far for so long. As one might expect considering how whipped I am. (and loving it)

The houses are coming along nicely we have almost all of the exterior walls completed on three houses and we have begun work on the garages. Our foundation will be laid out and poured in the next few days. Praise Jesus.

I was going to make fun of your spelling....but then I noticed in an earlier post I may have misspelled a word. But then I concidered :) the fact that I'm not a teacher, so I dont hafta spell corektly.

Anyway, we thought of you two a lot this week. We decided to use our vacation to paint our little house. A week off working side by side on our home. Sweet thought...but now we need seperate vacations...and maybe seperate rooms for a while. We figured if that was hard for us, we better really be praying for you two. So we are.......
