So We Do Not Lost Heart

Brown Family Update – November 2008

We’ve put a ban on all videos and computer games, except for a family movie at night. Andy and I have already read an entire book each, the boys have already made fast friends with a 10 year old belonging to another family on holiday here, and Sydney has rediscovered the art of playing quietly by herself. Aaahh. (For a short story about our time here at Sunrise Acres, click here). We came here to get away before the big wave of utter busyness hits us in the next couple of months. We decided this would be a great time to send you a short update on our lives. We heard from many of you that you enjoyed our last video update. We’re so glad! Since then, the past two months have been great. Tim Lang has come to stay with us for the year. He is serving as a short-term missionary with Andy’s team, OFM. If you want to check...
