The Shamrock Shuffle was this past Sunday and I accomplished the goal that I had set for myself!!! I wanted to run the entire thing and I did!!! I honestly never thought I could run 5 miles so this is a great feeling. I almost died when I saw a hill during one of the last parts of the run. Are you kidding me? What are they trying to do to us??? Fortunately I overcame my exhaustion and finished the run. It was a gorgeous day and an overall great experience.
The top two pictures are me crossing the finish line. Sorry the pictures look so digital. I am just happy to have them :)

Just wanted to write a quick update that Curt and Roger returned home safely yesterday around 2 pm. This was a couple days earlier than expected and is truly a miracle. This really shows the power of prayer.

Thanks be to God for his protection over them!

Please pray for the situation in Congo right now. If you don't know much about it you can read articles on CNN.com, the Covenant Website http://www.covchurch.org/or any other world news website. Roger Thorpe, a retired Covenant missionary, and Curt Peterson, the executive director of World Missions are stuck there.
