Jeremiah and Alissa

Alissa has never not known Jeremiah.  He had just turned 3 when she was born.  He wasn't much interested in his best friend's baby sister at the time.  Too busy doing boy things.  By the time Alissa was old enough to walk and talk, she had no time for him.  His sister was her dearest friend and the only reason she wanted to see his family every week as we did for a very long time.

It didn't matter to me.  Every Thursday we'd see the Boulters and I was so glad to spend time with my closest friend that it was just a bonus that our kids got along so well.

When God called Jeremiah to our area to work with Hope for Kids I was excited that Cam would have his best friend close by.  God probably winked.

  1. Hello sister Erika. I am a Pastor from Mumbai, India. Congratulations to Jeremiah and Alissa I did visit your profile and the blog post earlier too and do remember commenting on your blog posts as I wanted to know more about Hope for the Kids. I still would be interested to know whether you have your ministry else where in other countries and specially in India. I come from Mumbai, India and have been a Pastor from last 40 yrs in this great city of Mumbai. a city with a great contrast where richest of rich and the poorest of poor live. We reach out to the poorest of poor with the love of Christ to bring healing to the brokenhearted. We also encourage young and the adults from the west to come to Mumbai to work with us during their vacation time. We would love to have your grown up children come to work with us during their vacation time. I am sure they will have a life changing experience. Looking forward to hear from you very soon. God's richest blessings on you, your family and friends and also wishing you a blessed and a Christ centered rest of the year 2018. My email id is: dhwankhede(at)gmail(dot)com and my name is Diwakar Wankhede.

Alissa- Classical Conversations Challenge A

Alissa did Classical Conversations, Challenge A this year.  And a challenge it was!  She did 30 weeks of intense school work with lots of memorization, writing, drawing, learning, and reading.  
Geography was a huge part of her year.  She learned how to draw the entire world from memory, label every country, and know each country's capital.  She also learned 154 geography terms and memorized their definitions.  Her final geo test was to take a blank piece of paper, fold it to make accurate lines of latitude and longitude (equator, prime meridian etc), draw the world, and label the countries.  She took a test on the capitals so her map wouldn't be so crowded.   She also did a final project.  Her first one didn't turn out like she wanted it to (the one below).

 So, she decided to do one on canvas using watercolors.  Both were done from memory :)

Another thing she did was learn to draw from memory 10 different body systems.  She had to label each part of the system and do he…
