Amy Elizabeth Pack Memorial Scholarship...

Honduras, 1998

We are happy to once again contact you as the time approaches for the presentation of the Amy Elizabeth Pack Memorial Scholarship. With your help last year we once again presented a $1,000 scholarship to a student from Ruach International Christian Academy in Comayagua, Honduras.
 We are excited to be able to make this scholarship available again this year. Jim was in Honduras last November and was so honored to present the scholarship in person. He will be there again this year as the graduation speaker.

We have an unusual situation this year. There are two very deserving students. We have watched them over these years as they have grown in the Lord, developed into excellent leaders, and have performed well academically. It has been very difficult to make a choice between them, so we are hoping to be able to present both with a scholarship. You have all been faithful over these past ten years so please do not feel any pressure, but if you are able to do a little extra this year we would be honored. Either way we greatly appreciate your faithfulness to this scholarship.

Helping young people fulfill their dreams is a blessing to us, as is keeping Amy’s life story and testimony alive. You will never know how meaningful that is for us, and hopefully for you also, as you remember Amy in this way!

If you would like to donate, please leave me a comment and I will give you the information you need.

Thank you for your love for Amy and for our family. You remain an important part of our lives!

Jim and  Elaine

Always in my heart...

After five years...

I have not blogged in a long time.  We have been blessed with family and friends visiting us this month.  I realized how busy I have been when I saw when I last posted.  I look forward to posting more.
School has started and my days will be different than they have been for the past five years.  Five years ago I began watching a 4 month old baby girl.  I was planning on doing this for 6 months.  Those 6 months turned into years.  I guess you could say we fell in love with that baby girl.  She became such a part of my life that I could not imagine a day without her smile and hug greeting me each morning. She started Kindergarten this year so now I will be greeted with a smile and a hug in the afternoon when I pick her up from school.  I thank the Lord for this sweet one that He brought into my life.
