We've just wrapped-up a wonderful weekend in Birmingham with dear friends and mentors, Lyle and Mary. Their church, Christ the King, has embraced Isaiah over the many months and miles and invited us to spend the weekend with them. Their generosity and support were overwhelming. After worshipping with them, they threw a combined birthday party for Isaiah and Sienna.

We enjoyed many hours in L and M's pool, lots of time to catch up and share stories, GREAT food, and even a ride in Lyle's WWII jeep (much to Isaiah's delight).

Many thanks, Lyle, Mary, and Christ the King Church!

That jeep sure is cool. Looks like it was lots of fun. I am a big Star Wars fan too. I have a Lego Star Wars game that I really like.

I'm glad you all had fun in Alabama, people there is very nice. I love jeeps and that one is awesome!! I'm happy you guys could ride in it. I'll be fasting too but this would be my first time!! I’ll let you know how it goes.

Reading and Praying

Hey Isaiah...

Thanks for sharing your dad with us tonight. We really enjoyed our visit with him. We miss seeing you and we want you to know that there is NEVER a day that we don't pray for you, buddy. We heard that you and Sienna will be starting school at home soon... Are you excited about that? You will have so much fun (Carmen, I'm praying specific prayers for you as you start this new journey). We would love to hang out sometime, so just say the word... we'll work out the where and when. Keep being strong, Isaiah. We love you!
