It's Been a While...

It has been a while since I last wrote an update! Sorry for the delay. As we get closer to the end of the school year things have become more and more busy. In the past month Kellen and I have had the priviledge of going on the 9th grade retreat and the high school retreat. It continues to be a passion for us to love youth and encourage them in their walk with the Lord. We are thankful for that opportunity here.
About a month ago we got a call from Kellen's brother in California to tell us that Kellen's dad had a massive heart attack and was in surgery for a triple bypass. Kellen was at the 6th grade camp about 4 hours away when I got the call and was able to come back to Lilongwe the next day. Thankfully Kellen's dad was in very good shape and he went into surgery right away, avoiding permanent damage to his heart. He was out of the hospital in 3 days, already joking and making everyone laugh. We praise the Lord that he has continued to heal and recover well. It was very hard not to be there with Kellen's family and we are thankful for phone calls and Skype. Please keep Kellen's dad, Chuck, and his family in your prayers as he continues to recover.
