Quote of the Week

Claire has been getting bug bites and we don't know from where or when because none of the rest of the family has it has been a family mystery about Claire's bug bites.

Tonight at bedtime, Claire was scratching and I asked "Claire, what are you scratching?"

Claire replied, " my bug bites".

Olivia says, "hum, you gotta plague!" without ever missing a bite of her bedtime snack.

Couldn't resist

Claire was so tired that she fell asleep with her bedtime cookie still in her hand.

I just couldn't resist sharing these precious pictures of my girls.......I love to look at my sleeping angels.

Argentina Fellowship

The "mate" table set outside for the guys....traditional Argentine drink.

MK family cousins

Traditional Argentine food.....empanadas!!!

Olivia's artwork welcoming everybody at the gate for mate and empanadas.

We hosted a fellowship for fellow M's in our mission going to Argentina so here are some pics of the party. Olivia was in charge of the decorations so take note of the sign we posted at the front gate to the sweet! Enjoy!

Quote of the Week

In a letter written shortly before his death, C.T. Studd reviews his life with this summary:

"As I believe I am now nearing my departure from this world, I have but a few things to rejoice in. They are these:

1. That God called me to China, and I went in spite of utmost opposition from all my loved ones.

2. That I joyfully acted as God told that rich young man to act.

3. That I deliberately at the call of God, when alone on the Bibbly liner in 1910, gave up my life for this work, which was to be henceforth not for the Sudan only, but for the whole unevangelized World.

My only joys therefore are that when God has given me a work to do, I have not refused it."

bright...bright...sunshiny day!

Wow...we have had like 2 days of beautiful sunshine!!! It has been great. Of course, there is some rain in the late evening and during the night....but who cares?......the day is perfect!

Rainy Season

Rain, rain, go away.....we have to walk for 57 more days.

Did you know that in the rainy season in Costa Rica it rains every single day? Yep, it does.

Big sigh. I miss my car.
