Sorry Folks!

Hey, everyone! Sorry about the delay here....we snuck off on Friday down to visit Heath's grandmother, Mema, and also so that Heath could visit an inmate that he has been writing to for the past few months...it was a good time, the kids had a blast getting to see their cousin Ella again (we wish we could have seen more of them, but it didn't work out....next time?), and then they gather pecans for Mema, and then she let them take them home! So now we have a huge bag of pecans to shell! Yesh! lol

Heath's visit at the prison went great....they had a good time and talked for the full two hours. "J" is due to get out, I think, at the end of next year....please pray for him....he wants to make sure he is spiritually strong when he emerges, so that he can withstand the attacks of the devil. We know that the Lord will give him the strength that he needs! Pray that he can strengthen his foundations, so that he has a firm footing to stand on.

Heath had a humourous experience too, while at the prison, he was jogging back to his car, and a guard stopped him....because he was wearing white! LOL That is the inmates colour! The guard kindly suggested to him that he might not want to wear those colour again! And not only that....a 2ND guard also stopped him...."grin" So we now know...don't wear white! We didn't even think about what the inmates might be wearing, but if we had we would have figured on orange anyway!

The past couple of days have been just trying to get back into the swing of things....can't say that it has worked yet!

Thanks for the update and pics. Jared is growing up so fast!!!

BTW I would have thought that the prisoners would have been in orange or grey. Its a bit wierd for them to be in white.

The kids look like they had fun on the camping trip.

Did you get my email with the pics of our baby?

Lots of Love,
Melinda.

Hehehe! I wonder if any inmates escaping have ever tried the story that they are pastors? LOL. I guess Heath would have had to present ID?
Thanks for the pics and updates, the kids look awesome! I miss 'em! Boohoohoohooooooo!!!
