This was a month for lots of traveling and music. We traveled 12 hours to hear Karen play in an opera (the Magic Flute, and Karen was the principle flute player and played the real flute when the onstage person played the fake flute), then came back home to hear Esther play in a concert with her college wind ensemble, then went back to Karen’s school to her her junior recital on flute and host her after-recital reception, then back home to hear Esther play in her junior recital on clarinet and host her after-recital reception. Then we heard the local professional orchestra play a wonderful concert at the end of the month.

In the past week, we had wonderful celebrations at our church for Good Friday and Easter. The new worship leader did a great job with the services, with the orchestra and choir at both services. This year only two of us, Esther and I (Neil), played in the orchestra. John played in the Good Friday service and Neil (III) attended, but they both played at other churches on Easter Sunday.

Eric has begun his volunteer internship at Malone University as an assistant football coach. So far he is helping out with some recruiting. He also found out that he will be coaching one of the positions (inside linebacker for those who know football). After only a couple of weeks he has returned home to go to the Czech Republic to help with a football camp the coach from his alma mater will be leading there. He just left today and is excited about taking his first trip outside the US. His coach has been involved with this type of trip for several years, and sees it as an evangelistic trip as well as a trip to teach about football.

Our son Neil and his new wife Lori Anne have been married now for a little over a month, and they seem to be doing well. They have an apartment not too far away and they stop by to see us once in a while.

We had a blessed and restful Christmas holiday -- a quiet time for the most part. Bryony enjoyed a ski trip to Austria with her youth group. The leader said they appreciated her leadership and spiritual influence.

One of the main family events of this month was Thanksgiving. Karen came home from college and was here for a week before she had to go back to school. Our church orchestra played at our Thanksgiving service held the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. We had six of the seven of us playing in the orchestra. Since Karen was home from school, she played and Jeannette played in the orchestra for the first time in about a year and a half. The director, who will be leaving our church for another ministry in another church in January, asked Jeannette to play and she agreed to play for one last time. It was a wonderful service. For Thanksgiving dinner, we had all five of our children, our son Neil’s fiancé, Jeannette’s brother, Jeannette’s parents, and the two Chinese students who are staying with us this year. Along with Jeannette and I, that made 13 around the table. It was a great time of fellowship with family and friends.

ALL, Emmanuel

We may be a little slower, have a few more things to carry and may make some noises that you didn't hear us make before, but we are back to ministry and enjoying serving together as a family.

Since I have been away in Zambia since October 15, I don’t know what has been going on as well as if I had been at home. I can report that my son Neil bought a used car, a Toyota and he likes it a lot.
