Too Busy to Post

This past week-end was busy, hectic, and nerve-wracking. Friday, we took Bryce to Sacramento to be there for an early Saturday morning practice. The WAY Quartet spent the day rehearsing and sang that evening in Citrus Heights for their missions conference. We traveled back home Saturday night and arrived home close to 2 a.m. Following our Sunday morning service, we took our kids to Disney On Ice then returned home for our evening service. The service was one of those extra special times and our spirits were strengthened. Monday morning, Bryce was scheduled to return to Sacramento for another rehearsal. Although we were all exhausted, we got up at 4:30 a.m. and sleepily took off. Bryce spent several hours practicing and we then drove to San Francisco to see our very dear friends, the Bishops, and give them our love. Their 24 year old daughter, Bethani, had acute liver failure and had transplant surgery yesterday. We arrived back home shortly before 3 a.m. and we began this day at 7:30 a.m. Please join us in prayer as we continue to pray for Bethani and her recovery. A blog has been started to keep everyone informed of her progress. Drop by and leave an encouraging word. www.bethaniroam.blogspot.com We have been privileged to travel with Bethani on Youth On Missions and Brian and I sang at Bethani's wedding a few years ago. She is a darling wife and now mother to seven month old Wyatt. We consider her family to be close friends and are praying for their strength.

Hopefully, I will get back on my posting track soon.


  1. Wow, you guys came to Sac twice and didn't call me????? awwwww....*wahhhh!* JK! Sounds like it was very busy for you though, so I understand. That's so awful about Bethani! She's so funny and sweet! I haven't seen her for a few years, but that missions trip she went on, I happened to be her roomate for that trip. That's the only time we've ever become friends or hung out, but I've seen her now and then. What an ordeal for her to go through! She's so young to have this kind of crisis! I'll definitely post on that blog. Thanks!

  2. Janell - oops! Sorry! I figured you would have heard about the missions conference at Citrus Heights. It was really great. They had a world bazaar after the service and had booths representing all the continents. International food was served at each booth. A lot of work went in to this conference. Wish you could have seen it. The WAY Quartet did a good job singing, but they were all really tired. They did a new song and Ken Fitzpatrick played for them. It was nice.
