Stadium Seating

  •  Just another weekend full of activity --
  • We wanted to go into our downtown to go knock on doors and pray with people, but we were running late. So, we just went down our little street to meet and pray with our neighbors.
  • A family came over again to play Settlers of Catan (during Aolani's nap), play outdoors, and eat dinner.
  • I do not remember mentioning this, but our church is combining with another church (what a beautiful rarity and act of unity). Anyway, we had our first joint service this weekend and a picnic down by a river afterwards. Some friends took Aolani wading in the water and to throw rocks :) Also...
  • At the picnic, we met up with a growing family from this church that we use to be in a small group with in our old church in Wilmington! This was years ago, and we lost contact with them. Yet, we both move to the same small town and join churches soon to wed. And, they had their first child last year and are now expecting #2! What a small world! Praise God for random happenings like this!
  • Potty-training update: Aolani is absolutely perfect at home -- poops in the potty (she announces it and we go help her wipe) and even leaves guests (fun/play) to go pee-pee. She does well out in public; however, we're still working on her telling us when she has to potty while we are out...

  • Verses to memorize this week: Hebrews 12:1-3 ~ Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
