Big brothers and sisters

I know it has been a long time since I have posted, sorry.  I have been trying to catch up on school and we have been busy with lots of other things.  I have a lot I could tell you about but, I think that I will start by telling you one of the most recent things.  Maybe I will write more things later.
Two weekends ago the kids who used to live at GSF (we like to call them the 'elders' or the 'big brothers and sisters') came home for a little reunion.  It was such a great time of hearing stories from the 'big kids' about what God has done for them.  There are even a few 2nd generation GSF kids in there.  I was having so much fun that I did not really want to take pictures.  My dad took a few and I took a few.  AND ... I took a whole bunch of big group pictures.  I was just snapping as fast as I could to try to get a good one.  Here are a few of my favorites (how good can it get with at least 90 people?)  Sorry there are not that many besides the group ones.
Love this one  - Jane and Auntie Amanda

Me with sweet Allison (or maybe it is Amanda - they are twins) - the daughter of one of the 'big sisters'

Setting up (and being crazy)

Just the 'elders'
Both babies in this picture are kids of 'big sisters'

Of course, that cannot give you a very accurate picture of this 'family'.

One last thing, I have a quick little prayer request.  Tomorrow Sebastian will go in to see if they can do the other half of his surgery.  This has been a really long journey.  I don't really want to re-write his whole story but, I will hopefully have a link on the side of the blog where you can read/follow his story soon.  Faziri is four years old.  He looks like he is about one or two years old and has a huge belly.  This is because he has Hertzsprung.  On Tuesday he will go in two see when and if they can do a surgery for him.  Please join us in prayer for these two little boys.
