More Pictures

We opened Christmas presents on Monday before Christmas. Of course Kaitlyn enjoyed that! Again this year she wanted to play with her first present instead of opening the rest. She lives for the moment!

Christmas Day we went to the van der Merwes. We really had a nice time with them, the Cutlers (who were visiting us and the work in Lesotho), and the Steve Geises. A highlight for Kaitlyn was horseback riding with Uncle S.W.

As usual we had a Christmas conference. The services were good and it was also nice to catch up with friends. This is Me Mafelepe and their boy Reabetsoe. If Kristell hadn't been born premature, they would be the same age. He has definitely passed her up in size though. We think he'll be big and tough like his daddy who is a policeman.

Bro. Cutler spoke three times at the conference. They were missionaries here back in the 80's.

Sis. Cutler worked at the clinic here at Matukeng before there was a bridge across the river into Maseru. Their life involved much more sacrifice back then than ours does today.

Ready for conference.

Kaitlyn really enjoyed Rachel (l) and Anna (r) Cutler. Rachel has applied with HIM to come to Lesotho as a missionary.

Saturday after New Years, Kaitlyn was invited to the birthday party of Puseletso Letuka, the child of the former chief (Ntate Lioane) of our village. She turned one on the 2nd of January. A boy in the back row is holding her. Kaitlyn had a great time with the other kids.

Today Kaitlyn went with me (Glenn) to church. Steph has been sick and running a fever with some kind of a nasty cold or flu, so she couldn't go. Kaitlyn enjoyed dressing up in her "church hat" and "church shoes." She did a great job of sitting still on the front seat while I preached!
