Kids' Health Helps

I finally finished editing and making a health program for children ages 4-7. It is written for a teacher/parent to present to kids to teach them about the 8 natural and Biblical laws of health (nutrition, exercise, water, etc.). The presentations have stories, illustration, craft ideas, songs, and activities.

Kostia - Introductory Letter

Dear Friends and Family,

We have exciting news! Our family is looking forward to having a new child stay with us for the summer! For six weeks this July and August, we will be hosting a child from the Chernobyl area of Belarus, of the former Soviet Union. These children are being sponsored through a nonprofit group called Children of Chernobyl, Walla Walla. The six weeks they spend in our care will help recover their health from dangerous radiation exposure. Here’s a quick history of the situation:

An accident occurred in April, 1986 at the Chernobyl Nuclear Facility in the Ukraine, of the former Soviet Union. Fifty million curie of radioactive isotopes were delivered into

Kostia - Child of Chernobyl

This summer, we have the exciting mission adventure of having a Belarusian child coming over to stay with us. This is being sponsored by Global Family Alliance and Child of Chernobyl, Walla Walla.

Answered prayers about a Pickup

A couple weeks ago our family went Goat-camping and we took our pickup to haul the goats. We traveled over 500 miles to Wapiki Lake, near Indian Heaven Wilderness.

Before we left, I checked the antifreeze and oil in the pickup, but forgot to put the cap back on the antifreeze. I left the cap sitting on the engine and closed the hood.

About an hour down the highway one of the kids just "had" to go potty, so we pulled off. I noticed antifreeze streaming out. Bad sign. I looked under the hood and noticed the cap wasn't on. And there was the cap, sitting right where I left it. It hadn't even fallen off! Fortunately I had tossed in a couple extra bottles of antifreeze before we left so I filled it, along with some extra water, and we continued our journey.
