Goodbye Nat & Mikaela

Tim and Mikaela.  Mikaela was born in Africa.  This will be a difficult transition for her.
Janice and Nathanael.  Pray for Nat and Mikaela as they move from Africa to Australia.
Mikaela between her roomies, Hannah and Blessing.  The three muskateers really love each other like sisters.
Mikaela and Nat by the new stop sign.

Nat and Mikaela had to leave early as their family was moving back to Australia.  It was difficult to say goodbye both for us and for them.

Jayson is Four!

Four Years OLD!Four years ago on a cold November morning one week before Thanksgiving, our son, Jayson Scott Phillips was born in Kokomo, Indiana.
Jayson wanted a strawberry cake, so we compromised with some precious strawberries from the freezer saved from almost a year ago!  They were delicious!
Happy Birthday Big Boy!

Sweet Sixteen

Mi Yoen turned sixteen today.  She found a hedgehog just outside the dorm.
Mi Yoen wanted her ears peirced for her birthday so we pierced one and then the power went out.  I joked that I could use a flashlight to pierce the other ear and MiYoen says, "that would make a big hole!"  What a girl!
 She wanted banana cream pies instead of cake! Sweet Sixteen!  Happy Birthday Mi Yoen!
