The Pinkstaffs!!

Stew, Hannah, Kimberly, Wesley Grant, Laura, sally, matt and Sophia....and two little peas...

Finally, We walked into the Snaders house in Memphis and got to embrace our dearest friends, the Pinkstaffs. They were here in the states for a short time and so we drove to see them with much joy in our hearts. Though the time was short, it filled all of our hearts with deep joy and encouragement. The pinkstaffs have amazed us with their perseverence and trust in the Lord this first year in India. They will return for a few more years...our hearts return with them. And what is so fun is that Laura and I are both pregnant with our 3rd and due the same time!!

Pinkstaff family, you are so dear to are kindred spirits to our hearts...and we are with you in every way. And, i asked for a plane ticket for us to come see you in India for Christmas!! =) We love you guys so much!! Praying for you as you finish your visit and continue ahead....we are with you!

The Albrechts and The Hoffs!!!

Kimberly, Karey, Kathy
Brian, Terry, Stew

Mackiah, Cayden, Peirce, Christiana and sally
After the wedding in Denton, TX, we headed south to Tennessee where we spent time with our old small group. We had such a wonderful time catching up and seeing our kids play together. It was like old times. We owe much of our "growing up" to the Hoffs and Albrechts...they each spoke into our lives with love and conviction causing us to change...preparing us much for Austin. We miss you guys so much!! Thank you for all you gave to us while we were with you this last week!! We love you guys!!

Shanda's Wedding!!!

Shanda is one of my dearest heart friends that has been in my life over 11 years. We celebrated her wedding on December 8th to Mr. Billy Anderson! All 13 of us bridesmaids were all either roomates or close friends and so the whole "party", as Wesley Grant called it, was a huge reunion!! I haven't had that much fun and refreshing times in a while!! We love you Shanda and Billy!!!!
