Please pass this along to everyone you know and share it with your small groups
and your churches.

Having our forefathers go back to 1820 & having spent my whole childhood and young
teenage years in this beautiful country is a real honor, and to see it on the
brink of disaster is heart breaking!

Pleas pass it along....

Thank you!!!


ON SUNDAY 27TH April, 2008.

A desperate cry from the hearts of Zimbabwe screams across the world.
It calls upon all Christians of every denomination in every nation to
focus their prayers, in churches, halls, homes or elsewhere, on Sunday 27th
April, 2008 on the critical situation in Zimbabwe, a nation in dire distress and
teetering on the brink of human disaster.
Let the cry for help touch your heart and mind. Let it move you to do
what you can immediately to ensure this DAY OF PRAYER takes place in your
country and neighborhood.

Please pass on this message right now to all the churches and
Christian organizations known to you and to the media as well as to everyone
anxious to rescue Zimbabwe from violence, the concealing and juggling of
election results, deceit, oppression and corruption, and to bring about
righteousness, joy, peace, compassion, honesty, justice, democracy and freedom
from fear and want.

May a continual strong stream of prayer and supplication flow up to
the Lord on behalf of all the people on this DAY OF PRAYER, exhorting His divine
intervention throughout the nation.

Slavery." (Galatians 5:1)

Mammoth ( last time this season)


Here are a few shots from this past weekend. We had a great time, although it was so warm, most people were snowboarding in T-shirts! it was also super slushy, so i had SUCH a hard time getting up after each fall. I have at elast 8 bruises on my rear!! However, it was a fun weekend, and a nice way to end the winter season! Even after all my falls, i'm excited for next season!!

Laws Train Museum


On our way back from Mammoth, we stopped at the Laws Train Museum. It was very interesting and had so much history in it. It must have been a very harsh way of life back then in the late 1800's in this mining town.
