A Special Movie

 Kevin and I had the privilege of going to see a movie that Zach did the visual effects for. Extraordinary was such a good movie which Liberty University made this past year! Reclining seats in the theater was a plus too!!



I don't mind at all watching the credits go by especially knowing that Zach's name will be in them!

The passing of time

 Hannah's time back in the States went by way to fast!  We had a great time!  We were able to do lots of fun things, shop, eat out, and visit friends and family.
Her and her friend Delaney traveled back to Kenya together.  We are so thankful they were able to travel together.




See you on the other side!

A trip to the Mill

 

 Recently we visited the historic Yates Mill, Wake County’s last remaining gristmill, and the mill’s 24-acre pond, The 18th century water-powered mill is fully restored and operable.   We went on a tour and enjoyed walking around.







 We had a good time touring this place with our friend Julie.











 We enjoyed a picnic lunch too.



 




 Pelican's Snoballs was a yummy treat!


Good-bye Julie!  Thanks for coming to visit us!

Fun weekend with Friends

When we served in Zambia we had the blessing of having great journeygirls!  Julie traveled all the way from OK to visit with us.  Kayla picked her up at the airport and they spent some time together and then Kayla brought her to us.  We enjoyed our day together.  We went bowling first.



 


 Then we went to the Science Museum.














 Then for dinner we went to Blaze Pizza.  It's like a pizza subway!  You can put whatever you want on your pizza.  It was so good!




 Kayla left after dinner.  Julie stayed for the whole weekend.  More later.....

Trip to SC


In July, we took a trip to Seneca, SC.  We went to visit a couple of Universities with Hannah and to also see some friends.  Lifepoint Church has sent several volunteer teams to help us in Zambia and in East Africa.  These teams have become dear friends of ours.  We stayed with friends Mark and Sheila on the Lake and enjoyed our time with them.  We also got to have a fellowship time at the Cagels house with all those who had come on volunteer trips.  Then Kevin was able to preach at Lifepoint on Sunday.  Our time went by so fast but we had a great time.

 I really enjoyed paddle boarding.



 We went tubing out on the lake.  

 Our good friends Niki and Ricky Cook and their two kids just returned back to the States from serving at RVA in Kenya.  We enjoyed getting to spend time with them for a few days.

 We took Hannah to see Columbia International and I got to see a friend of mine from my college days.  Michelle and I both went to UNC-W and were involved with Campus Crusade for Christ together.  It sure was a blessing to have lunch with her!

 After leaving Seneca, we met good friends of ours Bob and Linda Allen in Greenville, SC.  It wasn't very long but it sure was good to see them again.  They helped us so much with 40/40 years ago!

On our way home, we stopped at North Greenville University for Hannah to take a tour of this campus.  Her name popped up on the sign welcoming her to the campus.

Crusade Reunion

 When Kevin and I were in college at UNC-W we were involved with Campus Crusade for Christ.  Recently, we had a reunion with all those who could come.  It was so much fun to get together with them and catch up!

 This was the group of us who could meet together.

 Karen and her husband hosted us all for lunch.  There was so much yummy food!
