We are off...

to Vancouver B.C. for a few days. We will be staying with Brenda's family. It will be nice to get to know them.

Also, Sunday...We where heading to Pathways Church. John Chandler who does TheoHacks podcast is on staff at Pathways, and since we do not have a church, and we do not know anyone, we thought we would check out Pathways. So, Necole was backing the van down the hill, she mis-judged a little and our back tire slid off into the cliff-yikes. I thought the van was going to flip over into the small ravine below. So, I had to get the family out before we all died on the day that Jesus lived. Then of course, I did the manly thing and tried to get the van out myself, which I only made the problem worse. Go figure.

We called our insurance company while we prayed the van would not slide down the cliff. The tow truck guy came and he looked at the van in disbelief. He tried to get the van un-stuck but he had no luck. So, he called a second tow truck to come help. Finally, they got the van out and we were worried that the gas tank or oil thingy was damaged...But, we were lucky and we had no damage.

Needless to say, we missed the service...Then the Nussbams called...Not Ken, but Ken's brother Tim. We headed out to Bremerton Island (via the ferry, which rocks) to hang with Tim & Rachel. We had a blast and we are looking forward to getting to know them more.

Anyhow, It's time to load the van and hit the road. Peace & Love!

I do hope you are planning on visiting Ken's parents while you are in Canada? Give us a call! We have a service on Tuesday but the other evenings are free.

Chris,
Sorry you guys didn't make it last week, but I'm glad to hear you are okay. I hope we'll get a chance to see you at a Pathways gathering sometime.
