Fearless


When you live on a mission field you learn to overcome some fears. Today Joseph showed his readiness to be a missionary. He peacefully slept at the paw of a jaguar. Incredible!! He is now finished with his missionary training and ready to face the wild jungles of Central America.

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee, because he trusteth in thee. Isaiah 26:3

All Dressed Up With No Way to Move




Joseph is really growing. We tried his suit on today and it is too small. It is a 0-3month and we couldn't even button the top button for his tie. We couldn't even get his right hand sleeve buttoned. There is no question, this little guy is not starving.

A Visit With Grandma


Today we made a trip to the clinic where grandma Tumbelson works. She graduated this past spring with a 4.o as a physician's assistent.

She missed him today while she worked so she called us and asked if we could bring him in to see her, she also wanted to show him off to her co-workers. They were all ooooh's and aaaaw's as they got to see the little guy that grandma always talks about. She sure is proud of her grandson.

Before we left grandma weighed Joseph. He is up to 12lbs!! He has gained a whole pound since we have been in Ohio. He is like the energizer bunny, he keeps growing and growing and growing and growing...

Joseph Beats His Uncle



Joseph defeated his uncle nate at a exciting, pulse stopping playstation game. Needless to say Uncle nate was not happy to be beat by such a novice.

X-treme Skater

At just six weeks Joseph is doing incredible things. Today he rode his first skate board. We were amazed to see him ride a wheeling, jump the kitchen table and grind down the basement railing. ( Not really )

Personal Update

Our time in the states is swiftly passing. It has been such an enjoyable time catching up with friends and family. However with the blur of events and the thrill of a newborn son, there is an increasing tug to go back to Honduras.

We applied for Joseph's passport which should arrive in the next four to six weeks and we must also ship the rest of our belongings to Honduras. While we wait, we will be holding several deputation services in Indiana, Ohio and Michigan.

Continue to pray for an easy transition and a safe journey back to the field. Our target time to leave is late September.

My New Chair

When Mommy and I went out to MD to meet Mimi and Aunt Liz, Mimi thought that I needed another thing to put in our little cabin. I really like my new chair. It helps to put me to sleep. After mommy gives me my bath she puts me in and rocks me to sleep. Thanks Mimi for my gift.
