An important announcment

I'm very pleased to announce the birth of Hailey Alyse Franco.

She was born at 2:41 today. She weighs 5 lbs. 14 oz. and measured 19 in. long.

She has dark hair which she got from the Franco side.
We are sooooo thankful to God for this new little blessing and for His protection of Jessica.

~God blessed them; and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply,and fill the earth,~
~Genesis 1:28a

All dressed up

A very common thing here at our house is for the children to dress up,
Whether as cow boys or soldiers, and it really is fun to watch them all play.


Priscilla Mullens, at your service.

The Range rider and his side kick, Dick West.

King Arthur and sir Lancelot.

Victoria trying to imitate her brothers.
Please leave a comment if you notice anything strange about Victoria's headgear.
This is just a small glimpse into the lives of the Franco children.

A post at last

Well here I am again and I have remembered my promise to post some pictures from the Ecuador missions trip.

There were 5 members,Daddy, Cristian, Caleb, Evangelist Alvaro Rodriguez and my uncle Galo.

Mr. Alvaro never passes up a chance to witness so here he is preaching in a bus full of people.

One of the beautiful houses.

The beautiful mountains of Ecuador.

Posing after their hike. They visited many different places and the weather varied from very hot to very cold hence the jackets.

Missionary Sid Messer and Daddy.
Of course, no report on Ecuador would be complete without some mention of the food:)

I really don't know what all these dishes are but I think Caleb is eating fish of some sort
and the drink is probably the Ecuadorian soda Tropical which is, I think, one of the best sodas in the world. Well, I hope you enjoyed this small glimpse into Ecuador.
