Hill is 13 today.  I have a teenager.  Surely I'm too young, right?  We are so proud of you and the young man that you have become.  Love you buddy. :)
He made it!  He had a enjoyed his time in Cairo, the lecture went well and he toured the pyramids on a camel!! :)  How much fun.

He is now in Ethiopia, with my favorite people on the planet.  My heart swells just thinking about it. 

I am the new biggest cheerleader for Skype.  Love, love it.  Thank you Lori P for making me sign up-- Moody and I have talked several times since he has been gone.  

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Keep seeking Him!

Hope you don't mind your Bunty putting that tag on you so long ago.
I know one thing. I could never be more proud than having you named after your grand father.
You are everything a grand daddy would ever want in a grandson.
Happy Birthday, Boo!
Love you more than you will ever know. Although I pray every day that you know that. And the most important thing is that Jesus loves you even more.

Happy Birthday Hill. Oh .. he is so handsome. I too will have a teenager before long. How is that possible?!
Love the photo of Moody on the camel. That is awesome. Cannot wait to hear more about Moody & Brett's time in ET.
Church yesterday in HK was incredible. How can I thank you enjoy for introducing us to the Hilliards?!
And yes, we are HUGE skype fans. It has been a huge blessing to have video calls with the grandparents in TN from HK.
Love & Blessings,
