The Gift of Prayer--QM--

We went to a birthday party this evening! Dorie's friend Edward turned three yesterday. I love birthdays so much and my little girl does too--even when she not on the receiving end. She was so excited about giving her friend a copy of her favorite music CD (Blue Moo by Sandra Boynton) and she specifically requested that we also give him smarties.

I love to make this little girl happy! I never knew how much fun it would be to give little gifts to my children. God feels the same way about us, and he has given us the gift of prayer to express our needs and desires to him. Ethan and I would like to ask you to join us in praying for our future. We had hoped know by now where we will be serving overseas, but we are still waiting and looking. We are specifically interested in Asia. Please pray that we would be lead to the right place in the right time.

Taking the Time to Enjoy Life -QM-

Life has been so busy at the Mast house these past few months. Ethan and I have both been taking classes at GIAL. We took a little break last week to go camping at a state park located an hour west of here.

Dorie's first smore.

Texas has sand-burrs and fire ants, but the weather in October makes up for all that. In the past two weeks I've been swimming six times--and November is a few days away!

James loves to play in any kind of water...even when

its a little chilly and smells a little like pond scum.

Welcome to our World!

Hello and welcome to our brand new blog! We are the Masts--Ethan, Queena, Dorie and James. We are living in Texas, far from our hometowns in Delaware and New York and we wanted to take the time to keep up with friends and family.
