Addresses two things that are usually not brought up in friendly gatherings: religion and politics, and then mixes them together. The point is that your faith should inform and guide your politics. If it does not, then it is no faith at all and you need to think about what it is that you believe.

The Manhattan Declaration is a statement of how our beliefs as Christians impact the views we hold. Go to this link to read it: http://www.manhattandeclaration.org/ Read it. Sign it. Live it out.

And we head back to Kenya. Next week we finish in Omaha, heading out on the 22nd to head to Georgia. We get to pack a crate to ship to Pearl River to ship to Kenya, and we get to pack all sorts of suitcases and see what we can fit into corners to bring back to folks in Kenya who’ve asked us to bring them things. Since we’ve asked people to bring us things in this way, the least we can do is haul a few things ourselves.

This week was flight training for me in the Caravan. I’ve spent the week in Ohio with the Stoltzfus clan while Brian started me in on turbine flying. A good week. I ended with a checkride today with the FAA and got my ATP SEL, or air transport pilot single engine land, rating.  A good week of training, and I’m very grateful to Brian and Sandi Stoltzfus for their hospitality and help with this.

Back in Omaha things have been quiet. However ….. Susan went to pick up her engagement ring (she’d taken it to the jeweler for repair, the band having split a few months ago) and found that the jeweler had just been robbed. Ack! Fortunately not her ring. The police were still there and the crime scene tape and news cameras too. So…back tomorrow to pick up the ring.

Less than a month and we head back to Kenya. Lots to do between now and then. It’s like moving all over again. It’s been good to be back and see friends and family, but it’s also time to get back to Kenya, too.

Come see us!
