We've enjoyed getting to know Misha better, and he seems to fit in so nicely with our family.
Google translater has been amazing! We had a long conversation with Misha last night by translating a phrase at a time. We were able to learn a lot about him, and had quite a few laughs at the way some things translated.
No rough housing!..
an unknown phrase in the Johnson house!

God is so good in the blessings He provides! Misha has been such a delight in the short time we've spent with him. We're looking forward to the months to come!

Our family has been praying about the Russian boy, Misha, we've been planning to foster for some months now. There have been quite a few difficulties with the Russian government, and his trip has been postponed a number of times.
After months of praying, God has been faithful in answering...in His time. We received word that the tickets were bought and Misha's plane will arrive September 24.
We are so excited about the opportunity to minister to him over the next 6 months, and watch the Lord faithfully sanctify and encourage our family through the trials to come.
Keep Misha and our family in your prayers over the next few months; as he will be undergoing surgery to amputate both legs, and we'll be trying our very best to make him comfortable- despite the language barrier.
You can read more about Misha and the details of his coming to America here.

Gettin' creative and crazy!
Just for fun! I love how Matt and David's expressions sum up their personalities completely!

This week I made one transaction, then left the store with these items and a profit of $0.24, (I'm going to have to start reporting my trips on my taxes, with these kinds of profits :-) ). I was especially excited about the Cover Girl WetLips.
Tuesday morning Hannah, Davina, Rosie and I made a trip around Greenville to do our weekly grocery shopping. After visiting a few different stores, we pulled into Aldi's to finish up the shopping.
Davina's eyes got big and she remarked, "Another store?". She let out a sigh and stated, "Grocery shopping is very tiring, isn't it?!"
They took long naps after lunch!
Mema and papa came up for dinner, and we all had fun fellowshipping with them!

On Wednesday Heather, Noah, and Mercy spent the day with us.
They weren't too successful!
Amy's big jump!
