Welcome to the 21st Century

I have finally gotten cable internet at my house. I am loving it already. I have also set up a wireless network so that I really will be able to work from home. When I did before I would have to use dial-up and it woudl take forever. Anyway, I should be posting more now that I can do it from the comfort of my own home. Will have mroe updates soon. I have tons of pictures to share!!

Behind a Frowning Providence, He hides a Smiling Face

This is an email that I received from very good friends of mine. Please take a moment to read it over. It shows God's amazing love!

I Peter 1:3, 6-7 "Praise be to God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope. . . In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so your faith - of greater worth than gold which perishes even though refined by fire - may be proved genuine and result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed."

Hello Dear Family,

Yesterday we had a tremendous thunder storm with lightening, thunder, and lots of rain. This morning the sky is blue and the sun is peaking up over the horizon bringing with this new and beautiful day, fresh hope in our desire to build a family. God has filled Mistin and I with fresh hope this last week. There's been a lot of rain falling the last couple years, but the forecast is all sunshine right now!

First, it looks like Ciara will soon become our child through adoption.

Second, well. . . look at the picture. In one of the busiest months of our lives (seminary and two foster babies) without the help of any charting, hormones, or physician assistance, God has smiled upon us and we are in awe.

Amazed by God's Grace,

Dennis & Mistin

Weight Loss Update

Things are going well since my last report. I have lost 88 pounds so far. My weight loss has begun to slow down, so now I am really going to have to start working. Previously all I had to do was be there. Please pray that I will be able to eat as I should and I will have the desire to exercise. I would like to continue to be successful in my weight loss, but I knwo that it will only be by god's grace. Thank you for your prayers.

Singles How Down

The last weekend of April the singles had a Hoe Down to kick off the summer. We had it all. A barbaque, square dancing, and we even dressed up in western attire. Take a look at a few of the pictures. If I knew how I would upload the video that was taken of us square dancing but I don't know how, sorry about that!!

The Yoder Boys

Here is a new picture of the Yoder boys. Everyone is doing well. All of Christian's check-ups so far have been very good and all is well. Praise the Lord for his goodness to the Yoder family in protecting their newest addition.

It is still hard to get Christian to look at the camera!!

The Harvey Twins

I went to visit Stephanie and the girls last week. Here are a few pictures that I took while I was there.

Reagan taking a snooze!!

Kieran being a stinker already!!

I didn't take this one but Steph sent it to me and I think it is great. They start off apart but have figured out how to get together to snuggle whiel they sleep.

Visit to the Zoo

Kelsey and I took the boys to the zoo a couple weekends ago. It was a fun time but it was raining so we had to stay inside the whole time. I am looking forward to a time when I can take them again when it isn't raining.

The Snow Leopard was fascinated with Uri and vice versa!!
