Last Thursday


Tonight we got to spend some time in SE Portland and participate in a program called Last Thursday. Its a neighborhood event, and part of it was held at Portland Metro. We had a lot of fun! We even saw a sign in Ahramic!

Missing China.....






I am like a little pencil in his hand. That is all. He does the thinking. He does the writing. The pencil has nothing to do with it. The pencil has only to be allowed to be used.-Mother Theresa.

Sisters and Bend




This weekend we are so happy that we have a working car. This month we have had to cancel two services, and use my Mom as a driver to one. We also spent a lot of time in the house, or just walking around town. Who knew having a car was so liberating!
Well this weekend we are in Bend for two services. I love coming to this part of the state, because we get to pass through Sisters. I love this little town, the look and feel of it. I will post some pictures soon of our travels, I promise!
Happy Memorial Day to everyone!

Car Problems!

We have been having a hard two weeks, dealing with car problems. The major one happened one week ago, the transmission went out. Well we got that fixed, and were assured we can drive on it no problem. Then the next day, a warning light came on, and it was about the transmission. The mechanic again assured us it was no problem, and off we went to Mitchell. Well, we tried. The warning light came on again...and we could not risk it. So we came home.
Thats two cancelled services, and more mechanics. We are frustrated, but the repairs are under warranty, so it will all be okay.
Here are some pictures from our abbreviated trip.
But at least Renee got to see the city of Sisters, she loved it! We are close to home next week, so we should be okay. I will keep you updated.
