Frank's Birthday 2009

All the family invested a lot to create a wonderful birthday celebration for me yesterday.

An elaborate home cooked meal, then gifts and games.  Frone (home only for the holidays) manned the camera.

I'm thankful for the loving care.

Here are some pictures:

Dinner with Father Francis

Last night (Monday 14 December 09) a number of missionaries prepared a lovely dinner for Father Francis, and invited others of us as well. It was a very good night together. Spontaneously, Father Francis offered a moving testimony of the deep impact his longstanding relationship with these missionaries has had on him and his life.

A little news of late

Marissa is finally taking her 1st art class.  It's not especially to her liking because it is "just" design.  But to me I guess it's like the drudgery of doing scales for promising musicians.

Also she recently got job at a very popular Japanese cafe on 5th Avenue in Manhattan

On Thanksgiving day we enjoyed a perfectly splendid visit with the family of Alan and Cynthia Inman together with their daughters Alena and Jocie. Sadly, for some reason, no pictures were taken of this treasured and blessed day. Alan picked my family up from in front of the Church of the Good Shepherd on 211th street in north Manhattan. Though beautiful, it is unfortunate that these are the only pictures I took on Thanksgiving day.
