January Update

The Grays/ CCBC Ensenada Mexico

     We had a wonderful holiday visiting with our boys and their families.

We started out in Florida spending time with Jacob, Alex, and Oliver and their families. We have three grandkids there, so we got to watch them and give their parents a break to go shopping, go on a date night, or just be there to have a good time with the grandkids. Ollie’s wife Jenifer has a brother who passed away from cancer while we were there.   He was only thirty three years old.  Please keep them in your prayers.  Last June her father was killed in an automobile accident. 

It has been a hard year for their family.   Also while we were in Florida we had the chance to visit with Leo’s mom and sister, Angie for a few of days.  Granny is doing well. She still walks a mile every day and can still play a mean game of Skipbo. 

     Last stop on our trip was Hattiesburg, MS. Our youngest son, Elliott and his wife Kaci live there. He turned 29 this year while we were there.  His father-in-law took us fishing down on the Mississippi coast for a day to celebrate the occasion and we came home with a cooler full of fish.  The Lord was good to us as always.

     It looks like this semester we will have forty-four students on campus.  A handful of students arrived early and are helping make everything look good for orientation starting next week.  While we were gone, a team from California came down and built a pergola for outside dining.  The one we had previously was starting to cave in because the bougainvillea bushes got so big and heavy.  It was a shame to have to cut them down, but this new pergola looks beautiful and it won’t take long for them to grow back. 

     Leo will be leading the Operations team and teaching two classes this semester, Growing Strong in God’s Family and Bearing Fruit in God’s Family. Pilar will be working in the Campus Store and managing the students who work with her. We are both looking forward to having the students back and being a part of what God is doing in their lives.
