I just got off the phone with Nick not too long ago. We were able to talk for 20 minutes! That's the longest I've ever spoken to him since he's left. We had such a good time catching up and just making small talk. He's pretty sure he's coming home on May 20. I'm so excited. We're going to make such a scene when he gets off the plane...we'll embarrass the socks off of him. :)

He's doing much better. He said that things have calmed down where they are at the moment, and he's really been sustained by the joy of the Lord. He said he was feeling happy the other day, there's no real reason to be happy out there and just felt as though the Lord was giving him His joy. I'm thrilled. That has certainly been right up there on my prayer list. I'm just hoping he'll get most of the packages we've sent him in recent weeks.

Keep praying for their physical health. Tony hasn't had any really nasty headaches recently, but keep that in the forefront of your mind, if possible. He's going to get himself checked out to see if he has migraines. Pray they have loads of Imitrex over there if that's the case.

Other than that, not much to report on here. Beacon is on for tonight. Hope you all can come.

See you there...

No problem. Yeah, I'll call you as soon as I'm able. I'd love to do something. I love your puppy! :)
