Lukas 13th Birthday Party
Lukas celebrated his 13th birthday with some of his friends from the Neighborhood. We had a pool party in our back yard (no, we don't have a pool, but praise the Lord our landlord does and it is right out our back door). When everyone was throroughly exhausted, we came inside for hotdogs and cup cakes. Cup cakes are not really popular here so that was a new treat for many of the kids.
Lukas proudly anounced to us on his birthday morning that he was going to be a grown up man starting that morning...now that he was thirteen. That lasted just a couple of...minutes. He told us a couple of weeks later that this teenager thing is tiring! He can't seem to get out of bed in the morning!
We praise the Lord for Lukas as a vital part of our family and a vital part of our Team Ecuador. He is a constant bundle of energy and has more contacts in the neighborhood than anyone else. I pray you will grow to be a man who loves the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength! We love you, Lukas.
