Happy New Year- 2008

Hello All! I just wanted to let you know we are all alive and well : ) I hope every one's 2008 has had a great start. We are beginning to plan the year as far as Kelly's vacation time. It is fun to look forward to a new year filled with fun family times. So far we have gone all the way between camping in Northern Michigan to taking the Amtrak train to Northern California, where Kelly is originally from. Who knows what we will use the time God has given us for, but it is fun to dream. As we get closer to paying off Kelly's medical school loans I become more excited about the medical mission opportunities in our future. I am most drawn to Kenya currently. We have missionaries from our church in the Rift Valley region of Kenya. Kenya has also been in the news recently because of the recent Presidential election and massive riots.
For now we look ahead into 2008 and plan our year. We know that only God knows what is ahead and what will be accomplished in our family this year. I look forward to seeing what direction you and your family go as well this new year. We will be praying for you and for God's will on this earth in 2008. I am so glad God has given us today!! What we do today affects tomorrow, for good or ill. Let us all remember that as we embrace God's plan for us in 2008. Love you all- Crystal
