Oh Oslo!

We are sitting in Jean and Lucas' apartment in Oslo overlooking a bay filled with boats. Good flights (although a lot of turbulence over the Atlantic). Tomorrow we start exploring. It is six hours ahead of Philadelphia time.

Jared and Amber have a boy!

Jared and Amber Carter shared the joyous news of their son's birth. "Dylan John arrived at 9:04 p.m. on Friday, May 20. He clocked in at a formidable 8 lbs. 6 oz. and 21 inches.  Both momma and baby are in excellent health. We are in awe over this wonderful gift from God!" Pray for them as they care for this little guy.

Our sympathy to Tom and Kathy Brewer-Smythe

Tom Smythe's father passed on to glory on May 23 after a progressive illness that became more critical over the past week.

There will be a reception at the church after the funeral. Tom and Kathy would appreciate your prayers since they also just lost Tom's mother in recent months.
