The Latest!

Ok. So many things are going on so fast that this is a way to get info out and relieve some of the pressure on my brain. In general the Maxwell's are doing well. Jonah is huge (about 40 inches tall and 35 - 40lbs). He still has more energy than that energizer bunny that restores the power to that city on the commercial on TV now. He using complete sentences and sings with his parents often. "Jesus Loves Me, Daddy", he says. "Twinkle, Twinkle, Star Mommy", he says to Lash; especially at bed time. Alasha is hanging in there. We are expecting our second son in April. Did I say, "April"? Because I really mean APRIL, not December or even January. And to make sure that happens, Sister Maxwell has been confined to bed-rest. For those of you that know my wife - please call or come over; then pray for Jonah and I. Now the interesting thing about bed-rest is that I am scheduled to get on a plane on December 26th, 2007 and return to Texas January 18, 2008. Those planes will eventually land me in Uganda, Africa. Just in case you wanted to know that is 8438 miles from Dallas, Texas to Kampala, Uganda. So, I have some decisions to make. Now for those of you in the know - you know that my first child came into the world just after I came from my last trip to Africa in 2005. Alasha is insisting that I go and I hope to go. Just pray for God's leading and pray for the safety of Mother, unborn child, toddler child, and the man-child. Sorry no pictures this time, may be next.

    Of course we would LOVE to see you, but we completely understand if you need to stay with your wife and son.
    We'll pray for clarity in your decision making and for Alasha and baby boy's safety.
