    So much has happened these past days. We’re actually settled into our new home, and yes, we love it!

    I’d enjoy filling you in on some of what’s happening in our corner of the world.

    Editor’s Note: Our good friend Rosanna filled in for Gloria this week who is in the midst of moving. I can’t wait to hear about her move next week! Rosanna is, by the way, German Baptist Brethren, a Plain sect that shares many similarities with the Amish. Rosanna writes from her home in rural Kansas.

    Today we will be rewinding 10 years and reliving the events of a rather colorful day when I was 18 years old. As I read this entry from my personal diary I couldn’t help but laugh at some of the memories. Interestingly enough, this particular day a young man from Ohio was in the community that day helping prepare for a wedding and secretly hoping Gloria (then Raber) would show up at the same place! Unfortunately, I had been there the day before and now had other things to look after. Here we go:

  • Editor’s Note: Gloria is off this week due to some ill kids. She will return next week. In the meantime, Rosanna Bauman was kind enough to fill in. Rosanna is German Baptist Brethren and lives in rural Kansas. She, age 29, is a farmer and writer. The Brethren dress plainly like the Amish but are a bit more progressive when it comes to technology and photography Enjoy! - Kevin Williams, editor

    Hi to all of you. How I would love meeting you all in person. Amazing how one can “get to know” people without actually meeting them! By now I feel like I know some of you quite well!

    The house is relatively quiet with several of the children taking naps and Elijah sleeping on my lap.

    Life certainly has been interesting these days. Elijah is slowly leaving his baby newborn stage, which almost makes me sad, yet it’s such a blessing to see him healthy and growing! He certainly is a plump little one now and still has his mop of dark brown hair. We thoroughly enjoy his sweet smiles as well as the cooing he just started with.

    Picture this, its Tuesday evening about 8:45 when Gloria told me, “Daniel I started labor.” I was like, “You are kidding me!” I was excited to go to bed early and get a good night’s rest.

    I had this idea that I would like to be rested up when our brand new bundle arrives. But guess what, God had a better idea. Soon the house was full of excitement. We told the children the way it looks we would probably have our baby the next day some time.
