Front Page News

Hi everyone,

Sorry it's been so long (again). I've missed blogging but have had NO time in the last month or so. Mom is up this weekend, we did a big fundraiser dinner last weekend. Meetings for all sorts of different things are planned this week and at this point I'm so glad I don't have a job on top of it all. As busy and unfun as that all sounds I've actually been having a great time.

Anyway the reason I'm making time to blog today is to share the story of what happened to our friend Jake. There is a huge (HUGE!) article on what happened to him and his dad in the paper today and believe it or not there is still lots of details that aren't included despite the story getting 3 pages in the paper. For any of you who said a prayer for him, thank you so much. God is really working in Jakes life.

Anyway, the article is here. Even if you don't know Jake or his family, this is an INCREDIBLE story to read.
and Jakes update site as I posted before is here (sometimes he updates it, sometimes his mom does).

For any of you who are interested, there will be a spaghetti feed and auction this Friday (6th of October) 5-7 p.m. at Wasilla High. There's going to be all sorts of great things auctioned off and the spaghetti is only $7 a plate (for families of 4 or more there is a special rate). All proceeds go to helping Jake and his family with medical costs. We could use all the support we can get, so anyone is welcome to stop by.
