    Praying for the Mission Team! Especially Kellie Muehlbauer, whom we know and love. :-) What a blessing to be apart of the Great Commission! Jesus said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of age." (Matthew 28:18-20) We serve an amazing God. Spread the news! We are praying! The Jasper Family

    Nice Spanish, although it proved a hassle for the rest of the family as they couldn't understand it. Jorge is so adorable, wasn't he? That's too funny you recognized him. Glad to hear from everyone's posts that you're all happy and healthy for the most part. Anna, I hope you continue to feel better. And CHELSEY PAYNE, why haven't you posted anything?! (Also, when does your earlier flight arrive? I'll totally come to the airport to meet you if I'm not working...and if you ever post anything!) Stay safe and have fun! Can't wait to see you all when you return! Love, Claire
