In honor of our spring fling to the U.S., Angela writes our June newsletter, inspired by the patriotic song, “America…”
O beautiful, for spacious skies…
For amber waves of grain…
For purple mountain majesties…
Above the fruited plain…
America, America, God shed His grace on thee…
And crown thy good with brotherhood, From sea to shining sea!
We’ve spent much of the last 3 weeks preparing to leave our house in someone else’s hands for the next year, in the form of cleaning out, weeding, re-organizing, and repairing. David is also taking driving lessons to prepare for passing the test, and doing all the paperwork necessary to get a student visa in France. I am devouring my U.S.-bought books, doing a thorough and consistent job of homeschooling, and maintaining a daily devotional life. Hallelujah!
I leave you with David now to take care of some important business… Angela

Finally, we’d like to let you know about two new ways that you can support us financially if you’re already shopping on the internet.
1.“iGive” – iGive is a way for a percentage of your online purchases to be given to a charity of your choice. Our Colorado church, New Hope, has agreed to forward any proceeds that they receive through iGive on to us. So, read more about it and sign up, follow this link:
(Note: I encourage you to download the iGive Shopping Window. It makes this whole process nearly invisible while shopping.)
