Ramadan Kareem

Ramadan Kareem! That's the traditional Ramadan greeting here. Well, things have slowed down a bit for us. Here is a quick update on life as we know it:

-The settlers haven't come back too many times since the prayer service. I don't know what their new plan of attack is, but I'm sure they aren't gone for good. Praise God that they haven't interfered with any more of Paidia's work, but please continue to pray for the whole situation.

- Paidia is taking a break from most of the programs because it is Ramadan. It's a good time to take a breath and plan a little.

-Jason is playing rugby with the Beit Jala Lions. He leaves Friday for a 10 day trip to Cyprus. He loves it, Sarah tolerates it (with a smile, of course).

-Sarah is still working part time and being a mom full time. It's quite a fun job.

-Hiba is still very cute and growing every day. She is officially a US citizen, as we finally had an appointment to get her passport.

-Ramadan = time change, so it gets dark at 6ish. The good news is it starts getting cool around 3 or 3:30, which is making the days much more pleasant. The bad news is Jason and I want to go to bed at like 7:30 every night because it's dark and Hiba's in bed...and then we realize it's 7:30.

-And now - here is Hiba in all of her cuteness. You can see more pictures of her here, here, here, here, and here. Or become my friend on Facebook (if you're lucky...)

She eats real food now...well, sort of.
