While We Were Playing.....

We decided to get in a Disney day before school starts. As we were exiting Small World, Connor's phone rang. It was Christopher!! We had been thinking of him on his way to Africa as we watched the cute little African dolls and animals sing just moments before. Come to find out, his flight was canceled and he was still in Zurich. Just after Indiana Jones, we got another call saying that another flight was canceled and he would be in Zurich another night. Long story short, he is on his way right now to Dubai and will then fly to Entebbe. Our boy is becoming quite the world traveler.

Off To Africa

He's off! Christopher left yesterday for a three month stay in Gaba, Uganda. He will be working African Renewal Ministries at the Wentz Medical Clinic. He decided to take a break from school and wanted to do something purposeful. We are so grateful to the folks of ARM for allowing him this opportunity. We are looking forward to seeing what God has in store for him on this journey! His first stop is a short visit with Auntie Pam, Uncle Markus, Nickolas, and Julia in Switzerland. You can follow his journey at
We miss you all ready, Christopher James Lawrence!!

A Birthday Celebration and a Drama

Yesterday we had friends and family over to celebrate Livi's birthday. We were also entertained by a hysterical skit that Sarah wrote. She wrote it right before we left for vacation and the girls practiced while we were in Jackson. They put together their own costumes and Tegan helped out with makeup.

Vacation Bliss

So thankful for our time away. Wyoming really feels like a little piece of heaven here on earth. The weather, the mountains, the river, the wildlife......

We just marveled at God's handiwork the entire time. We also loved spending time with dear friends.

Besides just spending special time together, here are the specific favorites of the family:
Paul loved using the tractor and leveling the driveway.

Barbara loved swimming in the pond and in the lake.

Christopher loved kayaking and the shooting range.

Connor loved shooting and the Crazy Eight races at the county fair.

Sarah loved horseback riding and shopping.

Olivia loved playing in the playhouse.
