pics of Evan w/ a prayer request

Here are some recent pics of Evan. I took the first three of him today and the last one was taken last week. I also have a prayer request to share.
This one was taken at a park that is near our house.
This next two show him sitting in a chair that he had climbed up onto. He is starting to climb onto the couch and onto chairs quite a bit. He has also climbed stairs as well.

This last one was taken at a bouncy house we had at the community resource fair last week. The event well but didn't have as many people as I had hoped. As I close, I ask you to pray for a Bible study we will be starting on Wednesday, Sept 23. It is based on the book- 'The Purpose Driven Life' by Rick Warren. Pray that many will be blessed because of what God will do in our group through this study.

St. Louis trip

The following pics were taken during our trip to St. Louis last weekend.
One of the highlights was going to catch a Cardinals game there. Here is one of the main entrances to the stadium. The next one was taken before the game as we were walking in close to the field. It was quite an exciting game as I got to see John Smoltz pitch and Albert Pujols hit a walk off home run to win the game 3-2. I'm not a Cardinals fan but they have one of the best stadiums that I have been to.

Here's me with my friend Sean Boone. He is planting a church in St. Louis. We met him and his family at a church planting training a few months ago and were able to stay with his family. Please pray for Sean's family and their church.
Here is us with a camel that we saw at Grant's Farm while we were in St. Louis. Evan really enjoyed seeing the animals there.
Here is the head of a Ankole Longhorn cow. They have these in Uganda where I lived and they had some there at the farm that were hanging out with some Texas Longhorns. I wasn't able to get a picture of the live ones as they were too far away but I did get this picture.
These last few pictures were taken in an area of St. Louis known as The Hill. It is a predominantly Italian-American area. It was quite interesting to see. We were able to eat there at an Italian sub place and the food was really great. I think there is a picture of the place there, Amighetti's.

This last one was taken at Forest Park and is a nice one of Evan. Well, I guess this is all for now.

Recent pics.

I just wanted to post a few recent pics as I know it has been a while. I have some from our St. Louis trip that I want to post later today or tomorrow. I hope you enjoy them.
Here's Evan wearing his food.
This was taken of me, Evan with a couple of Guatemalan friends from our church. In the background is the Missouri River. This is a place that we've gone walking a few times recently and it is quite nice. I ask you to pray for these folks and for the rest of the Guatemalan community here in St. Joseph. Pray that God would work in their lives, drawing them to himself.
Another cute one of Evan eating.
This last one was taken at City Market in Kansas City. We were able to hear this lady play the harp and Evan just loved it. Guess this is all for now. Keep posted for the other pictures.
