Hermans Hermits, Evanjafrica and a wedding...

We have been so busy! On Friday we went to an outdoor concert to see an old favorite of my mom's...Herman's Hermits. It was a blast! Peter Noone was very funny and all of the songs were great. Now you might be wondering why the heck would Aaron and I go see one of my MOM's favorites. Well, I grew up listening to them and I still love those goofy songs.




...I Henry the VII I am Henry the VIII I am I am.... I'm sure you know the rest of the song so I won't keep going, but we did have a great time!


I also have been keeping busy with another project. The man who runs the orphanage we visited in Africa, Carlos, and his new wife are coming for a visit in August. It should be fun, but we are also trying to start a new "adopt a child" program. It is very time consuming starting a non profit, but I think God has meant for me to be very involved in this. I really have a heart for the kids we visited and much of my ministries at church have fallen away, and I was pretty hurt/sad/angry about it but now I know why God was putting those all on hold... I was meant to be a part of this project. The timing is also perfect because Aidan is starting Kindergarden, so I will have afternoon's free to work on whatever needs to be done... since it won't stop after all the kids are "adopted". So, if you are in UT and would like to hear more about Evajafrica and what we are doing please contact me and I can fill you in. I am so excited to fill you in more and would love for you to come meet Victor and Christina and let them share stories about the kids in their orphange.






One last thing...my little brother is getting married on Sunday! I can't believe it and am so happy to go visit my family.... I still can't believe my little brother is old enough to get married!

I emailed you the words to the song, I think your brother is older than you were when you got married. Have a safe trip and come see us soon

Sure wish I could have gone with you to that concert ... how fun!
And thanks for calling me so I could hear the music that night, however, I had that song stuck in my head for a long time and couldn't quit humming it. =-}
Thanks for posting the pictures.

Wish we could be involved with your Evajafrica. If you can e-mail me some info (or bring it with you) maybe we'd be interested in supporting one of these children.
See you on Friday!
Love, Mom

If you will let us know when we can come and visit, we would like to hear about the children. Is this a program of support ? When will the people be here? We will be going to Brian's this weekend and be back on Tuesday night. Hope you had a great time in California , please don't bring back any of the smoke they have.....
Love
Utah Mom

First, congrats to your little brother.
Second, WOW! That is so wonderful for you to be involved in such a tear-your-heart-out-of-your-chest project. Dang girl, you have been blessed. I don't think I could do what your doing. I'd want to take all the children home with me right now! More power to you. Knowing you though, you will prevail and not stop until you complete your mission. God Bless You!
