Rain, Snow and Hail!!

Well, I don't have any pictures but I just thought that I would let you all know about the crazy weather that we have been having. Spring in the Northwest can be a crazy thing. In the last few days we have had rain, snow, sleet and hail. The latest snow we had was just yesterday. Well, trying not to have a bad attitude, I was thinking of all the reasons that snow this late would be a great thing...Maybe we will be able to have camp fires this year because it would not be so dry, there will be more water in the streams and lakes for a hot summer, and so on. Well, we are right in the middle of the Mission Conference at our church and we have had an interesting opportunity to have four national pastors here. They are from Haiti, Burma, Kenya and Indonesia and are all part of the H.E.L.P Ministry. We also had the opportunity to see our friends Jeremy and Amanda Tyler and their boys. We knew the Tylers at Temple Baptist Church and Crown College and also the Johnson Family who are going to South Africa. Last night at our International Dinner we found out the very best reason that God sent us snow as late as yesterday...Three out of the four national pastors had never seen snow before. They were very cold but what a neat thing for them to get to see snow. This helps all of us Spokanites who are sick of the cold weather and snow to be a little more thankful for the plan of God even in the weather. This week is Spring Break so I am excited that we will get rest and my plan is to get the nursery all ready for Lindsey. Hopefully by the end of the week we will be ready to take and post some pictures of the finished product. That's all for now. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!!!
