pics, videos, testimonies and prayer request
Here's Evan holding his pumpkin or ball as he calls it. Here's Evan and cousin Audrey looking at a book with Uncle Paul. We were able to see them and Laura tonight. Here's Evan in his Diego explorer hat. Evan can say hat now and has begun to play with hats quite a bit. The last picture shows that as well. Here's Evan and I in our Texas gear last Saturday for the Texas-OU game. I'm glad Texas won even if it was a bit ugly. Speaking of football and Texas-OU, there's a website I recommend that you check out. It is called www.iamsecond.com , it has video testimonies from Colt McCoy and Sam Bradford. hat & pumkin This and the next video show Evan saying 'Amen' which is one of his new words. Here is Evan walking and doing calisthenics.
Here's Evan giving Mommy a kiss. The last thing to mention is a prayer request. It is for a couple that is getting married in our church on Sunday. It's kind of a long story but I ask that you pray for Antonia and Juan as they begin their lives together. This will be the first wedding for me to perform. Pray especially for Juan who made a decision for Christ earlier this week. Pray that he grows in his new faith.
Here are some recent photos that were taken on my cell phone, along with a video that I took today. These first three pictures were taken out at the pumkin patch. Evan had fun walking around the pumkins but he kept calling them balls. These next two signs were taken on the best street in St. Joseph, Texas Street. Here on the Southside they have streets named after states and here is the best one. Here's Evan with his hammer. Here's Evan's protective headgear. Well, we are doing well. We appreciate your prayers and ask you to continue to pray for our family and our ministry here. I want you to pray especially for Lesbia. I know that's a strange name but I was able to share with her some tonight. Pray that she will be ready to trust Christ for salvation. She says she's not quite ready but pray that God will work in her life to bring her to faith in Him. Her husband's family believes but she has not yet. She is also keeping her husband and child from church. Continue to pray for Sunday services (2:30 pm) and our midweek home Bible study (5:30) as well. It would be good if we could have people dedicated to praying at those times. Thank you all and God bless. Here's a video of Evan with his new crash gear.
Here are a couple of videos of Evan walking. This is his latest trick. As you can see, he is getting around pretty well. I know these are kind of short and not the best quality but they were taken on my cell phone. Hope you enjoy them any way.
Here are some pictures that we have taken over the last month. We hope you enjoy them all. Evan likes to comb his hair, as you can see here. Here's Evan feeding the ducks and geese at the park. This was Labor day when we went to Jan and William's for a cookout. Here's a nice one of cousin Audrey. Here's Evan and Audrey in the car together. Here's Evan at his new Sesame Street workbench. Here's Evan with his Longhorn shirt that Grammie sent him. As you can see, Evan likes exploring a bit. Here's Evan with a nice harvest of our tomatoes. As you can see, our tomatoes did really well this year. Here's us with Pastor Paul Sheppard. He came to preach in Kansas City and we went to see him. Pastor Paul has been a big blessing in our lives. We have listened to him for years via radio but mostly internet, especially when we were in Ecuador. I encourage you to check him out at www.enduringtruth.org . We also had the blessing of meeting him there. The last few pictures were taken at our church's annual car show-Pathway to Victory. Here we are with a '48 Ford. This was my favorite one and the Plymouth Barracuda was Christine's favorite. Evan really liked seeing all the 'cahs.' That is one of the words that he knows really well and kept saying it that day. Here's a video of Evan swinging at Grandma and Grandpa's on Labor day. I'm not sure why but there's no sound on it. I know this is a different camera than the one we have used before. It's kind of a shame because the sound can be the best part.
