Most recent pic of us taken in the Drakensburg in May
Half way thru 2014!  So thankful that Jesus is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow.  Especially as the days fly by and we grapple to stay on top of everything. 

Some of the things that have been the ‘same’ this term…

The mixture of life and ministry continue and amazingly it feels in control most of the time.  And, it feels more so, when we rest in Him and trust that He is fully in control of EVERYTHING. 

Thanx for your friendship, prayers and support this year.  We’re so thankful for our lives and our relationships.  Pray we’d keep our eye’s on His face, situation to situation.  Thank you for walking life alongside usJ.

In and for Him 
Mark, Barb, JJ and Kara
