Where are the Sewards??
Good question. We've been travelling a lot recently. Hilary went to Cedarville University for a 2 week MK re-entry seminar. Then, we went up to Winnipeg for our neice, Kristy's wedding. Then we drove back to Wheaton, fully intending on settling in to our new home for the year. The morning after we arrived, we got a call explaining that Lisa's Grandma, Marion had died during the night. This afternoon (Sunday) Lisa, Ben, and Caleb took a train to Lansing, Michigan to help in any way they can.

Hilary and I leave for Arkansas on Tuesday. We'll have a long road trip to her new college home, John Brown University. Pray for her as she settles in, makes new friends, and gets used to all the newness of college life.
When I return next week to Wheaton, hopefully I find Lisa and the boys here, with the boys enrolled in school. Hopefully we can settle in, and live a slower pace of life than we have been.
Have you noticed that God doesn't waste anything? We notice that all the time. Saturday our new church neighbors had a cuban-style pig roast. They invited us and we enjoyed cuban food that was very reminiscent of food in Mali. And guess what game the guys were playing?? You may have guessed... Dominoes... what fun. Their version of dominoes is a bit different than the game we made up and played in africa. But we'll enjoy playing some with these guys as we get to know them better...
Gorgeous Pig Roast!
Believe it or not! They play dominoes in Wheaton!
Thank you so much for following us, praying for us...
We'll be a bit more regular on the blog now....
Thanks for stopping by,
