Saying Goodbye to Our Ming and Poo

Today is the big day that my beloved sister, Daphne, and brother in law, Ryan, leave for Cambodia. It has been exciting to watch how this opportunity evolved and we are soo eager to see what God has in store for them there. They will be traveling to the capital city of Phnom Penh and will stay there for a while till they head to the provincial town of Prey Veng where they will reside.

Please pray for safety, wisdom, and confidence as they venture to a new place, experience new culture and people, and attempt to learn the language. If you are interested in learning more about what they will be doing stay tuned to their blog: http://ryandaphne.typepad.com/

"Ming" is the word for Aunt in Cambodian and "Poo" is what they use for Uncle. Ella Grace loves her Ming and Poo so much and will be sending monthly updates and photos to them for the three years that they are there. Ella Grace and I were able to take a last minute surprise trip to see them. Here are some photos of our time together...


The big surprise. They were having a goodbye party with some friends when we arrived on the scene. Ming's face is priceless...
Disbelief
Ella Grace got scared because there were so many people she had never seen before and everyone gasped. Ming made everything better.She was mesmerized by the fire with Poo.

Helping to get a few last minute things before the trip.

We will miss you and love you more than words can express!

6 Months Old Already!

We aren't sure where the time has gone but Ella Grace is already half a year old (hard to believe!). The past few weeks have been filled with meeting great grandpa Wilfong ("Papa") in Orlando, celebrating Daddy Guy's 28th birthday (yikes.....we are awfully close to 30!), helping out in a kindergarten classroom at a nearby school, and going to our 6 month check up. She now weighs 18 lbs (90th %) and is 25 inches long (50th %). Here are some of the latest pictures...
