A Special Visitor

Last week for our services we had a special person "attend" was Patrick's Mom, Denise! Patrick asked her if this once she would be able to join us via Skype for our Sunday services. Everyone was excited to see her. We are very blessed to have been called to a place that we have family here. Not all missionaries have that benefit. St. Barths is the island Denise was born on, so she has lots of family here and lots of memories. The sweet lady in the middle seat, wearing red, is Denise's Mom (Patrick's Grandmother.) She was especially excited to see her daughter and to have services together! After services we enjoyed our meal of Creamy Chicken over rice, Broccoli/Cauliflower Salad, Iced Tea and Jello Poke Cake. Denise ate with us and made herself a ham sandwich and a nice glass of coke with lots of ice. (I think Brenna and I were sort of coveting her Coke!) It was fun to have her eat with us! (For now our three faithful ladies sit around the table with Patrick, Silas, Callie and I. Josh, Elisabeth and Brenna all eat their lunch in the living room.)

Then, after lunch Denise gave everyone a tour of her home. Mama (that's what we call Patrick's Grandma) has never seen Denise's new house.

It was a great day! Praise the Lord for modern technology!
