We are loved. And we, of course, know this, and not just on special occassions. However, there are times when it becomes even more obvious. And we have special gratitude to the Belmont Church lunch bunch who, despite our rare appearances in Tennessee since they threw us a wedding shower almost four years ago, wanted to throw us a baby "soiree", and have some time to hear about our Africa plans.

We had a wonderful time, and we are thankful for the part you play in our friendships and in our church home. Special thanks to our fearless hostess, pictured below (husband not included).
