Today was an exciting day for our family. Britton and Hannah were baptized at Good Shepherd Community Church by their Grandpa (affectionately called "Baca" by the kids). Here's a few pics.

After the service we grabbed a quick family photo. Along with Joy and I and our kids are Baca and Grandma Hlavka and Steve and Heather (Joy's sister) along with their two kids.

Last week it snowed here at the mission house. The previous pictures of snow were all taken up on Mt. Hood (which is much higher and colder than here.) It doesn't snow much at all here, so this was a real surprise and treat. It was only about an inch, but the kids and I managed to roll up a few balls for a snowman, and have some fun.

Well, I leave on Wednesday morning for Indonesia. Joy and the kids will be staying here in Oregon until I pick them up in late February. It's going to be a real bummer being gone from them for so long, but I'm really looking forward to getting back to Indonesia. If you think about it, we'd appreciate your prayers for all of us over the next two months. Joy will have her hands full with all the kids, and I'll be doing a lot of flying and training on the other side of the world. Thanks!!

Oh happy day! The greatest joy and dream fulfilled when our children accept Jesus as their Lord and savior! We rejoice with you on Hannah's and Hudson's eternal decision. What a wonderful way to start a new year! We will continue to pray for the whole gang as you will be separated for awhile.

Praying always - Dixie & Lew
