Our April 2012 was filled with various happenings.

First we visited our dear friends, Blake and Sarah Lehr (and baby Jeremiah), to make new years cookies since they were unable to join us for the MCC relief sale this year.  It’s always a treat!

 

 

Despite consumption of doughy-sugery-goodness in mass during our visit, the following weekend we made our annual trek to Kansas for the real MCC sale…and consumed even more new years cookies.  The trip home was particularly special since we were celebrating Nicolas’ grandparent’s 60th wedding anniversary!  It is also one of the few times in which a majority of the Hostetler family is able to come together.

During the month, we also were able to reconnect with various friends.  Nicolas’ old friends from the Big-Brother-Big-Sister program when he was young.

Then our friend Ignacio and Meylin Mireles, missionaries in the central/south Americas, were in the states on furlough and to raise support.  They came for dinner one evening and it was good to meet Meylin for the first time and hear about wonderous journey they are embarking on by becoming the overseers  with IncaLink of a new orphanage in Trujillo, Peru.

And finally, Kara’s best friend, Libbey Sellers (and husband Gabe), had their first baby, a little girl they named Annika.  Kara is a proud ‘aunt’ and is looking forward to baby time this summer.  (Note to family, don’t get any ideas from this!)
