Dear Friends

Introducing:  Elsa Jayne Hendrickson – our newest family member!
Cheryl had a very short no-med labor… baby and Momma are both doing well and home now.  Here are a few pics of our newest little princess.

Family update

It was a blast having our family here in Kansas City over the Christmas and New Year holidays.  John & Cheryl and their boys (Aslan & Eli), Markus & Allison and Avalee, and Luke & Sarah, all stayed at our house for abFamAquarium - 14out a week.  Of course we over-ate and had family time around the toasty fireplace.  Jack Stack BBQ and KC Aquarium (see pic) helped keep the family entertained… and we played games a few times in the evening.  Can I say that a few in our crew are just a tiny bit competitive.  Whew!!!  Had to play referee a time or two. 🙂  Guess that’s what makes our kids world changers!  It was a ton of fun to be together under one roof.  (We missed having Lydia and Chris here this time.)

They all left… and then came the baby.  So now we’ve had a new flurry of paparazzi to take pics of the little princess and hold her.  Some of Cheryl’s family from Virginia and Hawaii came… and of course that means more fine eating.  How about all you care to eat fresh caught Ahi sashimi straight from Hawaii?  Now that’s what I call heaven… or very close to it!!!  Now that batch of family has gone and a new wave of family has arrived (Luke and Debbie’s mother).  The fun continues…

SD, CA / Mexico trip
In early March we’ll return to San Diego and check on our friends there.  We’ll be in a few meetings but mainly we’re going to cheer for and officiate at the wedding of our good friends, David Ceja and Joyce Nava.  It’s a two day extravaganza… the first day in San Diego and the real wedding in Tijuana on the second day.  You gotta know, there’s gonna be some fine Mexican food in this celebration!  Maybe this is what weddings should be like… a really fun multi-day gala. 

Norway/England/Wales/Switzerland trip in March/April
Two days after we return home from CA/Mexico, we leave for Europe, which has been in our hearts for about 5 or 6 years.  We leave KC about March 19 and return about April 22… we’ll be sharing in a conference (Outcry 2015), a bible school (Veien School of Ministry), churches and house churches and fully expect to participate in some cool God-stories.  I think this trip will be largely about development of the relationships which have been established through the years, and watching to see where the Lord’s favor rests… which will give us insights into future trips to Europe.  

We hugely appreciate your prayer declarations over us as we plan, travel and minister. 

Thank you for loving us so well!

With love and blessings,

Mark and Debbie

    You have an awesome tribe. 🙂 Sounds like you had fun and will have fun coming up. Miss you guys. Hope to see you sometime when you get back.

      As patriarchs, you and I are watching out tribes expand… our territories increased and tent pegs stretched out. Wow!!!

      When I get back we’ll make a plan for a couple day get-away event with some guys. Now, that just makes me smile as I’m saying it. 🙂

        Makes me smile too. Looking forward to it. 🙂
