About the Picnic


Brian teaches the young couple's Sunday school class, and we decided to have a picnic to get to know everyone since most of us have only been on the island for less than a year due to recent rotations. Anyway, we reserved a pavilion with a BBQ, a jumper for the kids etc. It rained all last week, and even when we started setting up the picnic it started to rain again! We prayed and prayed that we would have the Lord's blessing on this function, and when it started to rain and Brian could not get the coals going (no one was there yet) we started to think maybe the Lord's will was to postpone the picnic ;) So, we prayed that the rain just move "around" us....do you know that is exactly what it did!! The wind changed direction and the rain clouds moved around us!! The sun even came out for the entire picnic as you can see in the pictures!! It was just beautiful, and as we packed to leave...it started raining again :) God is so good!
(Brian took this picture the weekend before last...it is the east China Sea)

Oh and I wanted to say a big THANK YOU to you and your husband for the sacrifices you all make for me and America!

My dad fought during Vietnam and while home on leave a lady spit on him and called him a 'baby killer'. I never forgot his telling me that. Of course I'm so proud of him because he earned a Distinguished Flying Cross during Vietnam.

I just LOVE our military! (o:

Hi there. Love the picture of the East China Sea. It is so tranquil looking! The video of your little gril was precious. What a cutie pie! And the pics of the picnic looked like you had a good time. I'm glad everything went good for you that day.
