  1. Hi,
    We appreciate being able to be a part of your lives through your blog.
    Hope you get a tub soon. Hope your language classes are going well. It looks like a beautiful country there.
    Our son, Kip, is in southeast Asia with friends. They have been able to meet many wonderful people there and experience many new things from another culture. We are happy he is in a culture where young people have respect for their elders.
    Husband, Ron, mother Lois and others in our family are well.
    Ron & I have an opportunity to get away for a couple of days, but don’t know where to go or what to do.
    We have been raising children for 41 years and taking care of my mother for about 11. Our family and friends at our club have been our whole lives till now. When we do go away, we usually visit cemetaries in Pa. where our ancestors are buried. I think we need to get a life!

    Happy you all are well.
    Will be in touch.
    Chris and family

  5. Hello!
    I am so happy to find you here and will follow your adventures with great interest and many prayers!
    Dr. B knows but I will let other readers know that my mother-in-law, Grannie Annie (91 years old, she lives with us) was his patient for — seven years?
    Thank you for keeping us posted. I hope you consider this an important part of your mission, since it is so much work, but it is very enlightening and uplifting for your readers.

    God Bless You all!

  6. My Dearest Lydia and Lukas,
    I so loved looking at your pictures and seeing Lydia getting ready to go to school. I miss the warm weather that Thailand gave us, and I miss you. It was so much to see you every day and lets not forget how much fun it was to eat lunch then jump in the pool. Its snowing in Birmingham, Michigan right now and very cold. Easter is a week away and l look forward to celebrating it with friends and family. I trust you will do the same.
    I keep you in my daily prayers, I miss you both every much and your mom too she is very nice to talk to.
    God Bless you.
    With all my love,
    your Craft teacher,
    Miss Judy
