October update

Hello! Sorry for the long absense... we've been insanely busy! Here is a little update as to what has been going on lately!

Semester Abroad 2011

We are now entering our 5th week working alongside 13 students who have come from Indiana for a cross-cultural experience in the Dominican Republic. Running this program is the highlight of our year, we absolutely love this program! Weekly we put on activities to develop unity, build community, and make this an unforgettable experience. No experience is like the next; each year is different and presents different challenges, learning experiences, and blessings.

This year the unforgettable experience is already in the making. I have had the privilege and honor and of walking alongside a gal who comes from a life of sorrow, anger, pain, shame, and fear. We have journeyed these past 4 weeks through a rigorous path of healing and there is still more mountain climbing to come. But this experience has been an amazing path of grace, peace, love, forgiveness and healing.

Having those moments where God takes your breath away are the moments worth living for.

I am living in one of these moments. I am “unqualified” to help this gal walk through this healing process, but God is so much bigger than qualifications, her hurt and pain, and my qualification and training. He is using her desire to heal and my willingness to be there for her and to pray for her, to bring about the most beautiful and incredible redemption I have ever witnessed. And it’s simply God being God and us walking faithfully with Him and allowing Him control that is bringing this about.

I am physically watching God change this gal’s life forever. She will never be the same.

I am humbled at His great power and ability.



What else is going on?

·         We will begin traveling on Saturday with the semester students. We’ll be traveling for one week.

·         We have a new house mate, Mark. He was a semester student of ours from 2009 and he’ll be with us for 6 weeks as he helps out in the medical site.

·         Melody and Adam will be visiting in November! We’re super excited to see them and to share with them our life here.

·         I (Vicki) am going to start helping out with the worship team at church. I know that I’ll be playing the keyboard and maybe I’ll get to help with singing.

·         Josh will be graduating with his master’s degree in Discipleship ministries in December.

Monster Beats in 2011 does regarding the earphone profession cannot be ordinary one year Monster Headphones , how many years depend upon the first to accumulate the domestic some earphone manufacturer technology tends even more is maturely intense with the traditional international big plant between competition, then actually does have which manufacturers in 2011 year to be able to break through a tight encirclement stands in belongs to under victor's spotlight Monster Beats ?

Let us wait. Large US and Kuwait issued G909, let us see those who is one section shakes these international electricity to compete sufficiently the famous factory product.

Perhaps 4000 Yuan prices let the common consumer accept with difficulty, but because Tesla technology's application this section does obeisance Asian power Monster Headphone to be able to let you and thoroughly that wrap Diamond Headphones tedious and expensive table model system, brings simple enjoyment the graceful acoustic fidelity which to T70P, such looked words 4000 also expensive?

The exquisite sounds of people annotation, the correct sound field performance as well as the clear accurate sense of depth, will be a that kind of tin will let you have the startled colorful feeling product, what certainly will be most essential will be you only needs a personal stereo to be able to obtain these to enjoy. Believed that everybody has a not too good impression regarding the domestic manufacturer, that is "lacks the innovative ideology Beats Solo Hd Frequency Response ".
