my favorite meal: chicken poppyseed

 This is my mom's recipe for...
Chicken Poppy seed

Preheat oven to 350F

3 cups of cooked & chopped chicken
1 can cream of chicken soup (don't add water!)
8 oz of sour cream
1 tbsp of poppy seeds

Mix above ingredients together
and put into an 11X7 baking dish
now in a separate bowl, stir together 
1 1/2 cups of crushed Ritz crackers (about 40 crackers)
and 1/4 cup of butter melted... I always make a little more
because this is my favorite part, healthiest too of course :)
Spread the Ritz topping over chicken poppyseed 
that is already in the baking dish...
Bake at 350F uncovered for 30 minutes

definitely worth one hour

This is an incredible sermon on Birth Control by Mark Driscoll.  I had read the chapter in his book, {Religion Saves and 9 Other Misconceptions}, but the video is so much more powerful.  This sermon is the first out of 9 in his series on Misconceptions and I'm slowly going through each one.  You can find notes from this sermon {here} and for you runners who want to exercise and listen you can download the message off iTunes free just click {here}  This is an important topic that everyone needs to think about and discuss whether you are married, single, with or without kids.  (grab your husbands and have them listen too!  They'll love it :)  you'll see...)  Before Patrick and I got married, we discussed our views on birth control, researched a lot, and I talked with my sweet sister-in-laws who had done a lot of medical research and talked with christian doctors.  Mark Driscoll's sermon goes into great detail, summing up most of what Patrick and I learned from wise counsel, but feel free to email me if you have any questions or want to know what we are doing.  (   (oh and be sure to mute the music at the bottom of the blog!)

wrestling match

Our friend came to visit yesterday and brought his sweet puppy Gunner
Do you remember him from {this post}?
Vali and Gunner are best buds and did not stop wrestling the ENTIRE NIGHT!!!
I snapped a few pictures of their 4 hour wrestling match 
and I promise they were not hurting each other
even though they look like demon possessed lions
Thank you Gunner for playing with her!

update from Profaite

The Lord is doing amazing work in Haiti and the Church is rising up to help the Haitian people, offering an eternal hope they desperately need.  We received the following email from Profaite and I thought you would want to join me in celebrating! 

"Things are very hectic nowadays. Since after the quake, we have to  work harder than before to do several additional activities  at the church such as cleaning debris,  visiting people, serving them food  and so on in order to help people keep the faith. The Haitian gorvenment , under the leadership of several religious leaders, encouraged people to spend three days-Feb.12- Feb14- of fasting and prayer. There were nearly 1500 people  who attended our Church (Cite Soleil Christian Church) during the first and the 2nd day and more than 2000 during the third day. More than 150 people have converted and added to our church since after the quake.  We need to keep praying for every thing that God is doing in Haiti now.
To God be the glory!"
Thank you for your continued prayers for Profaite, the Church, and the people of Haiti. 
150+ saved!  Praise the Lord!!
