Playing in Marloth Park

From the end of May to the beginning of July, we seemed to be constantly moving. We spent three wonderful weeks with family in the States. We got spoiled with fun and food at both grandparents’ homes. We got to meet our niece for the first time. Some of the highlights were visiting the zoo, feeding sharks and stingrays, fishing on Papa’s boat, and playing at lots of playgrounds with cousins.

When we got home we immediately started packing up our home. God provided a perfect new home for us. We now live in a townhouse with an amazing kitchen for Elyse and a public park right behind our house for the kids to explore and play.
We also had a chance to visit Marloth Park, right on the edge of the Crocodile River.  We spent a weekend away with some friends and had some zebras, warthogs, giraffes, baboons and even kudu come right up to our door.

Ryan published the first version of the new LinguaDMS uploading application just before our trip to the US.  It was great to have this finished so he could relax.  After getting back his focus has been on catching up with all the other projects fixing small bugs and updating documentation.  Currently most of his time is working on going back to the Producer’s Tool.  It’s been nearly two years since he’s made any changes and it needs a few long outstanding bugs fixed.

Ary and Owen’s Corner

Ary and Owen are growing like weeds. They seem to have unlimited energy. They love slaying monsters with their stick swords, playing in the dirt, climbing and jumping off anything. We are so thankful they are in better health now that we have moved.

Ary and Owen love going to school once a week. They are so excited to see their teachers and friends. Elyse is teaching Ary to read. Ary is excited to read but not a big fan of the hard work. Owen speaks more articulately everyday though when they are playing, Ary tells Owen exactly what he should say.

Listener Story

Hi there TWR.  Thank you for your broadcast in times that can’t be easy. I’m in Zimbabwe and found an old SW / MW radio which I retrieved after many years because of the power shedding in a country torn by greed and corruption. We only have 5 hours of power some days, so finding you again has been such a blessing in the long dark hours of the night on 1170MW. I listen to the DStv Channel 855 (TWR Africa) when we do have power. Many thanks again and may u be blessed in your service.
