Bring on some more memories...

Big O. OT. O-Tizzle. O! Owen Thompson, all 6'6" of the gentle giant of a man has arrived. He flew in last week and will be taking on the position as Intern #2! Tyler is heading out on Thursday and is hoping that his place in the hearts of the Allen ladies isn't surmounted by this enthusiastic, talented and funny young man. We'll see what happens when Tyler arrives back in August after traveling throughout East Africa. Will they remember him or will the be mesmerized by this tall man, or has Tyler completely won them over? Tyler isn't worried, but Owen is good with kids:) I will update soon.

Until then, Owen will be spending a couple weeks out at Ciyanjano helping work with a short term team from California and then spending a month living in the house on our property and working with PLD and Admin. Owen and I go way, way, way back. I have known him, literally, half of his life and the priviledge is all mine! In fact, he turned 24 last Friday and we celebrated with some friends of ours and Owen, eating cake and pizza and bunch of kids helping him blow out his one very large candle. Please be praying for Owen as he embarks on an adventure of a lifetime!!!
