Prayer requests

We have entered the rainy season. It is usually sunny or overcast and dry each morning. It then starts to rain around lunchtime and rains the rest of the day. It is still warm (in the 70's) and humid. In this environment colds and viruses are common especially if you are new here. I have felt cruddy since Friday and Tanner had a fever yesterday so we are both home sick today. It's great to finally have a chance to write all the things that have been floating around in my head, but I don't like to miss school. Tanner seems to feel better today. We would appreciate prayers for good health as we experience rain and dampness that beats Oregon!

We are all learning Spanish slowly but surely. We would appreciate prayers that our brains would be sponges to soak up the language that we hear all around us. Laura is having the hardest time since she resists learning Spanish. She understands more than she will speak. It is very hard as a parent to know that if she would only try it would come easy.

Wisdom as we parent our children in a different land and culture and as they go through the ups and downs of culture shock.

Prayer that we won't get distracted or forget to pray together as a couple, together as a family as well as to study the Bible alone, together, and as a family. Also that we will be fed through the sermon's we brought from home until we can understand the Spanish preaching at church.

Thank you so much!
