Please pray for our friends the Creighton Family. They are missing their son Zachary. They haven't seen him for almost a month now. For more information, click the link on the left.Edit: Zachary has been found. He is OK. Please continue to pray for the Creighton family as they sort out what happened.
Last week we started packing up boxes. It's an exciting time for our family! We haven't permanently moved for over 12 years, so as you can imagine, we have accumulated an incredible amount of stuff...I guess our 1,300 sq ft house was too big for us because we're planning to downsize to a 935 sq ft house while we wait for permission to build a new one! It will be fun... I think...right? Of course right!
In the meantime we're hoping to move before the end of the month! (I think we'll need a miracle to meet that deadline!) But there are several reasons why we think we should!
On Sat we met the Duggar family from AR. They have 16 kids and their oldest is 18! You've probably read about them or seen them on TV. They came on Saturday with a video crew from the Discovery Health Channel. It was so neat to line up our two families and have a total of 30 kids!!! You can read more about their visit here.
Could you imagine what the Christian population in our country would be in two generations if all Christian families trusted the Lord to give them the amount of children He wanted them to have?
The Lord has blessed southern CA with some beautiful weather lately. Here is a picture that Chris took on Saturday.
Work has been keeping us very busy as well as preparing to move, and continuing with beach nights and pizza nights, and Church all day Sundays. This week it looks like we're going to be seeing friends from northern CA, KY, TX and AR!!! We're looking forward to that! We'd love to see y'all too if you happen to be in the area!
We'll probably start updating this more frequently after I (Mandy) learn how to do the html for it.
Hoping that all is well with you and yours!
With love,The Dortignac family
