We have had a wonderful week at the beach. We left this morning and decided to stay overnight in Mississippi hoping to miss the bad weather in Louisiana and Texas. We are so sorry for all the damage in Texas done by the hurricane. We are thankful that the weather was so beautiful at the beach. We are already looking forward to next year!!

Mia, who is a horse lover, was content to play. She may have been wishing Jack was a horse instead of a dog.
My brother, Tom & his wife Peggy and my niece, Cynthia & her husband Hutch visited the next day for a few days. Cynthia was here on business and her husband Hutch came along. He, Tom, Jim and Travis had fun playing golf. It was so hot those days but that didn't keep those boys off the course. We had fun eating out, shopping, laughing, and just being together.

Jim was in China for three weeks during the Olympics. I wanted to share some of what he wrote on the way home.
"As I am writing this I am looking out the airplane window at the
Grand Canyon and thanking God for a country founded on
His precepts and for the freedom that we have to follow Him...
even to the end of the earth.
Seventeen of us are just returning from three weeks in China.
My heart is full as I reflect on all that we have seen God do
over these days...the battles won...the setbacks and struggles
that allowed us to learn lessons that we would never have learned...
and to return to America with the knowledge that several on this
pilgrimage are now contemplating long term service in China.
As we meet and talk on the airplane and in the airports
there is so much excitement as to how they will be used
to impact China in a significant way over their lifetime.
We all fell in love with our Chinese brothers and sisters
and gained great appreciation for their daily
struggles as they seek to serve God on a daily basis."
