Where did fall go? I took this picture of the girls just last Sunday. It was a beautiful day. But our nice, warm fall weather turned cold the last few days! The temperature was in the 30's first thing some of the mornings. If the sun shines the world warms up, but when it's overcast it feels like winter weather. :( Yesterday we all wore jackets to church. I know it's inevitable, but I do not like cold and winter!
I have wanted to organize a retreat for our team ladies for several months now. It's finally working out, and this weekend 5 of us will be going on a little retreat. Please pray that it will be a relaxing time for us. Some money has already been promised to cover the expenses, and we trust that more will come in. If you feel that God wants you to give towards this retreat, you can send the donation to HIM, marked "South African Ladies Retreat". I'll be posting some pictures of the retreat next week.
Thank you to each one of you out there that prays for us here in Lesotho. We appreciate you so much!

At the end of March there was another church wedding, this time up in the mountains. The day started out so rainy we weren't even sure we'd be able to ford the river to get to the village, but in the end the day turned out beautiful. You couldn't ask for a more beautiful setting for a wedding (below)!
We've been enjoying fall weather. The days are still warm, but the nights are sometimes chilly. Kaitlyn enjoyed raking leaves a few days ago. Kristell didn't like sitting in the pile of prickly leaves, but she LOVES being outside. Kaitlyn had a lot of fun jumping in the pile before we hauled them away in the wheelbarrow.
This is Kristell on Easter Sunday after the conference. You can see that she's pretty good at sitting up now. She still falls over once in awhile, but it's rare now. She hasn't even tried to learn to crawl yet, but she likes standing up. Maybe she'll be one of those that cruises before she crawls?
