the Rohrer's are HERE!

YAY! My parents have arrived. They had really great flights and have even stated that "it wasn't that bad!!". They didn't arrive already dreading the flight back home so this is an answered prayer already. Everything went really smooth so it's been a great journey to the land down under.

On another note... we celebrated our friends 30th birthday Saturday evening on some acreage just in land from us. It was nice to get out in the country- open fields & gravel roads!

As many of you know my parents are coming to Australia in only 3 more sleeps! They leave PA February 18th and arrive in Australia the 20th. Pray that they have a safe and smooth trip! I want them to want to come back again in the future :)

I had a wonderful birthday week. My family had a "surprise Skype birthday party" ....

Thanks for all the birthday messages, wishes and blessings! I feel so fortunate to have so many caring and loving people in my life. THANK YOU!

Another set of wheels...

We got a second car! Praise the Lord!! After months of searching and changing our minds 10 times about what we wanted vs. what we needed, Jeremy has a vehicle! It's just in time for my parents arrival next Monday :) YIPPY! I knew I couldn't leave them with our little scooter to ride around in while they are here so a second car is going to be great.

Also, Religious Education(RE) classes went really well on Thursday!

I  have 4 grade 3 classes; all the teachers are lovely. The official list of who is not taking RE (parents can request their children to not take it) and who is not has not been released yet. Please PRAY this week that parents will choose to allow their kids to stay in RE and the kids will want to be there! We travel from classroom to classroom and teach the kids in their rooms. If the kids opt out of taking RE than they just sit in the hall, but once one "cool" kid sits out then it seems their friends follow, but the opposite can work in our favor.

Religious Education

The new school term has begun!  Next Thursday Ashlee and I begin teaching RE (religious education) to the local groms and Pacific Paradise Primary school.

Ashlee is teaching grade 3 and I am teaching grade 6.

Please pray that the time we spend in the school will be a time of planting long term seeds in these kids!
