Tribute to a Great Man of God

We received the sad news today that Sr. Jesus Montero passed away last night after many months of bravely battling cancer. Jesus was the chaplain at our hospital in Shell for more years than we can imagine. He brought God's peace and comfort to so many in the hospital and Jesus will not only be missed in the hospital, but throughout the entire town of Shell. He was very fortunate to be with David and Beth, his son and daughter-in-law at the time of his passing. It is such a sweet thought that he went from David's arms straight into God's.

Our Morning with Parkview Christian Daycamp

We had the privileged of speaking to the kids at the Parkview Day Camp a few weeks ago. This lovely Day Camp raised money for our hospital last year. They were a wonderful audience and asked tons of wonderful questions and then surprised us with another more money they had raised for the hospital. We are very grateful for such wonderful children and their FEARLESS leader Julie Baldridge.

Can you name this baseball field?

Its famous.......
It is the middle of a major city......
It was the last stadium to add lights....
There has never been a World Series Game played here.........

This is Wrigley Field in Chicago, Ill. We got a behind the scenes tour of Wrigley Field when we visited our friends, The Slinkman Family. Unfortunately the Cubs were out of town so we couldn't see a game, but we had a great day of touring and eating in downtown Chicago.

This is all of us in the Cubs dugout.

The Slinkman's gave us such a warm welcome, we could have stayed there forever!

The kids had a wonderful time playing with Joshua, Caitlin and Maddie (lou)!

Our Visit to Paris

Here are Sebastiao and Isabella standing under the Eiffel Tower on our recent trip to Paris..... Paris Texas that is. Yes, we really have everything you need in Texas

Sebastiao read an article in magazine about the Eiffel Tower in Paris, Texas and asked if we could visit. We made a quick side trip on our way to Chicago and after a little searching we found it. If anyone from the Paris, Texas Visitor Bureau reads our blog, please, Please, PLEASE give us a little help finding this gem of Texas. Just a sign or two in town would be great. We drove around for a while and had to ask multiple people before finding it. Just a few signs.

Desks For NSMS

Nate Saint Memorial School is in need of student desks for this semester. Due to where we live (termites, and other wood eating bugs) desks have a shorter life span. Last year the school was able to replace the desks in the 1st/2nd grade room and this year we were hoping to replace all of the desks in the 5th/6th grade room and then the 3rd/4th grade room next year. The school currently has enough money for 4 of the 5 desks we need for the 5th/6th grade room, but we would like to order the 5th desk and would love any help we could get. Each desk costs $80 and any we would be grateful for any help you can give. All gifts are tax deductible and the mailing address for incoming gifts is PO Box 39800, Colorado Springs, CO 80949-9800. Make sure and put the account number 373150 on all gifts. Thanks so much!
