But from everlasting to everlasting the LORD's love is with those who fear him and his righteousness with their children's children . . . Psalm 103:17

Shaken, but just fine!

I guess our recent earthquake (3:45 a.m. our time yesterday) has made some international news. We are fine. It was definitely the biggest one we've felt, and seemed to go on a lot longer than most - waking up and freaking out the kids, including Isaac! There was a bigger one when we were last in the USA, so we missed it (for which I am grateful). Some of Gavin's colleagues and passengers who serve with New Tribes and MAF reported lots more damage and even PNG lives lost in a landslide. Even at the epicenter, though, friends' new village houses did not fall down, thankfully! Thanks for praying for those who did lose loved ones and houses. :(



In different news, our kids all had dental checkups and did AMAZING. So brave and cute (especially in the eye-shield sunglasses)! I only have pictures of Marcie, Seth and Will (Gavin got the others with his much better camera). Will was the only quint with cavities, so he got to choose a toy for a reward in sitting so still and being such a good boy. He chose a bubble machine "gun," much to his siblings' shared delight. It doubles nicely as a fan. :)

Will and our sweet PNG dentist are good buds now!
 

 



Eyes on the prize!
