Ice Cream Interview with the boys

Ice Cream Interview with the boys

We bought some good ice cream from Costco, and last night the boys were munching down on it. I decided to take the time to ask Nathan about what kind of ice cream and cake he likes. He was quite talkative. Then Benjamin decided to show us how he likes to eat an ice cream cone.

Home Alone

Home Alone

Yesterday Janell and the boys went to Florida to visit our family, so I’m home alone for a few weeks. I was supposed to go to Cuba during this time, but I had issues with my passport so I couldn’t get the visa in time. So, I’m home alone.

It’s okay, though, because I have plenty of work to do. The school year just ended, and I’ve got tons of projects going on. We’re planning a National Youth Workers Conference for November, so there are details for that. Our diploma course has 2 weeks left in the school year. We’ve got graduation coming up. I’ve got papers to grade. I’m working hard on our Spanish youth ministry website. Oh, and I’m taking a distance course for my Master’s degree.

So, needless to say, I’ll be missing my family but very busy. Plus I’ll have to scavenge for food while Janell’s not here. It’s so hard to be alone.

Here’s a video I made the last time I was home alone:

Here’s something we thought was funny. Everywhere you go here, you have to pay to park, so the Baby Mart put a great ad on one of the bars that closes and opens when you take your ticket.

Incredible Missions Video

I just saw this video over at the Global Youth Ministry Network’s blog. It is powerful.

You might not know it, but YMI is starting an initiative to train youth workers in Nepal, in an area of the world where 70% of the population of over 26 million people who are under the age of 26.
