Murphy and Christine
Matthew and Stephen
They are our dear friends. They have worked in Togo for the last 6 years. They are planning to begin a new work in Rwanda in 2009. It was great to hear what the Lord is doing there and how he is leading the Crowsons to join him . It is our desire to be a great support to their ministry in Rwanda.
The Crowsons have purchased many of our household items, including some of our furniture. After the egg hunt, Murphy did an amazing job of loading their car just before the clouds broke with a downpour of rain! Tori even was able to help with the packing. Jonathan also took one last rest on his mattress before it was handed to Murphy on top of the car.

After VGAP last week, the Crowson family returned to Aplahoue with us for 2 nights! The plan had initially been for them to stay one night. However, due to car trouble, we were blessed to have them for 2! We had such a great time. We continued great conversations late into the night, poured our hearts out in prayer and spent some great time laughing!
Our kids really enjoyed good times with Stephen and Matthew. In the above collage, you will see that we had an Easter egg hunt on Saturday. We did not have enough baskets so we used gift sacks! In the picture of the kids by the car, Timo has all of his easter eggs gathered up in his shirt!
