International guests....

Things have been a little crazy around here for the past two weeks.  Two weeks ago we had a friend from the Czech Republic here visiting the United States for the first time.  We call me Czech Michal because we know so many Michael's so it just made it so much easier.  (Yes, he spells is without an e...haha!)

Michal came in for the weekend and we had so much fun with him!  Two months ago I started a new workout called Crossfit and Michal loves Crossfit as well.  So there were a couple of days he went to the gym with me and I think he was surprised how much harder it was here in the states.  

This weekend there was a Crossfit competition here in Lubbock and Michal decided to compete.  He has been working hard for the last two weeks and training really hard.  James, Farrah and I went on Saturday to watch him compete and cheer him on.  He did so good and he competed in the individual men's group and won 2nd place!!  

While Michal stayed with us, Farrah adopted him as her big brother.  It was the sweetest thing!  She always asked about Michal and invited him to do everything with us.  I was pleasently surprised how Michal really looked after her. 

This weekend we had our friends from Norway stay with us.  Sean, Hannah, Isaac and Elizabeth have had a pretty rough weekend.  Isaac was sick with the stomach bug and then came down with strep...poor guy!  Then Hannah became sick with the stomach bug but I have to say, these guys were such troopers!  Farrah had a blast playing with Isaac and holding Elizabeth every chance she got....haha!

Sean and Hannah are about to do a church plant in Norway.  I can't wait to hear all the exciting things that God is going to do through them and for the country of Norway!
