We just sent out our October update letter, regarding our progress towards ministry in Spain. If you’d like to receive this update, as well as future updates, feel free to drop us an e-mail or to plug your email address in over on our
Stay Up to Date page. (We promise: No spam!) Our prayer requests for this month are below the break, along with several pictures from recent family get-togethers, travels and outreach events.
Please pray for us this month regarding the following needs:
Our upcoming field visit! From 10/16-10/28, we’ll be visiting the ECMI team in Spain, meeting many of the workers, and seeing their various ministries. In the middle of that time, we’ll have the chance to join the whole team for a few days of prayer.
Our sending church visit! Just before we fly out, we’ll be joining Whitton Avenue Bible Church for services on 10/16, and Dan will have the opportunity to preach about mercy and redemption in the book of Ruth.
That God would continue to add new financial and prayer partners to our ministry team.
We love you all,
Dan & Anna J.

Three generations of Scandihoovian women-folk
Sister-Sister (Like Tia and Tamera, sort of)
Reading them the rules
My umbrella pretty much rocks and I know it
Just add a plane on the beach, and you have an episode of Lost here
Jennie, Bruce, Ryland, and Anna all insisted I take a photo
A happy mom. Yep, Jennie, you’re a mom now.
This is when Anna started encouraging Ryland to take a swim.
A happy grandma. Yep, Julie, you’re a grandma now.
Again, I try for the serious look.
Again, Anna tells me what’s what.
If this whole thing seems familiar, check the last post. I did the same thing to her in May.
The easiest way to carry a baby.
Finally, Anna pushed Ryland into the lake.
Yes, that’s really Anna dancing. Her cousin is just as surprised.
One last group picture before the Floras & Gregorys escape from Michigan.

Just after we arrived in Sarnia, Canada. There are no pictures of the drive through Michigan because it’s Michigan.
Our first Bed & Breakfast for the trip
The church across the road
I was fully clothed in this shot, I just wanted you to see how short Canadians must be.
Beautiful, downtown Sarnia. It really was a nice little town.
Our second Bed & Breakfast for the trip. Pure German hospitality. Excellent breakfasts.
The view from our room. That’s Lake Ontario.
The view inside the room. That’s a lot of pink.
Check this place out if you’re in Ontario–it’s called the Rheinhessen Estate. Great rates, great views, great breakfasts.

Grabbing lunch in Niagara-on-the-Lakes–this town was cute but expensive!
I’m grabbing lunch too.
Although I don’t know if that’s a normal color for food.
We sat on this bench and did nothing for a few hours. It was great.
These folks sat down next to us and spent the entire hour on their separate smartphones. Kids these days.
The lights of Toronto from our porch
We’re at Niagara Falls!
They’re big, said Mr. Understatement
We’re totally going on the Maid of the Mist tour…
And we got wet

And a big ol’ panorama for good measure
Day 4 or 5? I don’t know. I just know we went to Toronto.
This picture’s for our friend, Tim
So we tried to go to the mall, and it was insane
Instead, we walked around town until our (Anna’s) feet hurt
And we walked a bit more
And decided to sit on another bench and do nothing again
We saw a boat
And we felt like this
So, the last day of our trip, we took the southern Ontario shoreline back to Michigan, and stopped at a few beaches. This was the first.
“I see water!”
Yeah, Arizona doesn’t have this
Feeling much better now
Another wonderful panorama for you
And a pretty, background-friendly picture of shells as well
Relaxing at the Blue Elephant
Also relaxing at the Blue Elephant
This picture is for our friend, Chris
End of the trip, very relaxed
In September, we had the honor of participating in my cousin Caitlin’s wedding
Yep, Diane, you’re a mother-in-law now.
