Dear Family & Friends: We are having so many new and exciting adventures to tell you about. We get up around 5:45am and go as fast as we can until bedtime, learning our new responsibilities and having a peek at this BEAUTIFUL country. We hope in this blog we can express how blessed we are to testify of Jesus Christ and serve Him in this amazing corner of the world! HAERE MAI* to our blog, we're glad you are visiting us!.....(*This means 'WELCOME' in the Maori language)

Mother's Day 2012

Jeff brought me flowers and made us a lovely roast dinner, one of our standard Sunday meals at home.  It looked funny to see a tiny roast, a bowl with just two potatoes and a handful of carrots.  Although we are enjoying this time together, it was also a reminder of how much we miss our Sunday family dinners with lots of food, family and fun, also a reminder of how blessed we are to have children who enjoy each others company and make time to be together. It was wonderful to talk to and/or receive emails from all our children.


  1. You're such a handsome couple but Zi can imagine how lonely you must feel. The days are going quickly.

  2. Even though it was just the two of you you'll have fond memories of that Mother's Day!
    Enjoyed looking at all of your pictures and your favorite eating places. What great memories you're making.
    Love you, Kay Lynn
