Arkansas, part 2

Sunday morning we went to church. I love their church! Josh is the worship pastor and we are so proud of him and are so grateful to the Lord for how He is using him for His glory! We got to talk with Todd Ahrens, who was the speaker at our Missions Revolution last week. He attends the same church as our son!

After church, Al and I took the kids home and fed them lunch and got them down for naps. Josh had to undo the set up so he got home later. And Staci came home from her girl weekend! The weather was just beautiful so we went to a park.

When we got home, Josh grilled teriyaki salmon. Soooooo good!!
What a wonderful weekend with the kids! I was so happy not to feel ill. Back in July of last year, I got a bite, followed by rash, some pain in my side and weekly flu-like symptoms. A test confirmed positive for some sort of Rickettsia rickettsii, possibly Rocky Mountain spotted fever. We aren't certain. But the infectious disease doctor says that for now there really is nothing else to be done and it can take some time (possibly 2 years) for symptoms to finally subside. Am trying other things, but I was happy to feel good on this weekend visit!!

On our way home, we stopped in Joplin, at Chik-fil-A. Imagine our surprise bumping into another family (the Wellers) from our church back in Newton who also love this restaurant! (and a Chick-fil-A will open next month in Wichita!!) They had spent the long weekend in Branson. It was a good weekend!

Glad you were feeling better. You are looking more like yourself! Can't believe how that little guy is growing!
