Look Who Has A New Camera...

Defend the weak and the fatherless; uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed. Psalm 82:3We feel passionately that the Lord didn't put the Stumpfs on this earth only for our own happiness. We are very happy, but that is not our goal or purpose for life.
Is it not to share your food with the hungry
and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter—
when you see the naked, to clothe them,
and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood? Isaiah 58
34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’What's next? The aforementioned paperwork. Lots and lots of paperwork. A homestudy next week. And then approval, or not.
37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ Matthew 25

the camera lens
|Picture #7- Hunter figured out how to put |
the camera on film grain
|Picture #12- He calls this one |
“Study in a Pacifier Leash”
|Picture #20- He figured out how to put the |
camera on Baby mode, which is funny, because
he could have put a digital stamp with his name
and age in the corner.
|Brigitta as Mary|
Jacob as David (holding a guitar - the closest
thing we had to a harp!)
Heidi as Deborah
Caleb as Noah (animals are in the ark)
|Being a little goofy!|
|We tried to train Heidi to say, "I'm Deborah. I sit under a |
palm tree and tell people what to do." Instead
she would say, "I'm Deborah. I sit on the potty
and don't know what to do." Priceless!
|And to start of my photos....SQUID JERKY!! I was willing to taste |
it (but it was about three years old). I was the only one.
|The back of the squid packaging. Ted insists that one package will be enough!|
|Japanese letters and the sounds they make |
at a glance. Dig the pictures. Awesome.
|A close-up of my favorite little Japanese character thing. |
While we uncreative Americans would pick something like "open" to represent O,
the Japanese card thing picked a monster-ish creature! I'm honestly
not making fun of the monster I luv it :)!
|Here is John Calvin as we know him....|
|...and John Calvin in Japanese!|
|The inside of John Calvin in Japanese|
|You know you're a book freak when you get excited |
that there's less than 2000 copies of this book in
the world and you have one of them :D. It's in
Japanese. I couldn't read it. I didn't care.
|A picture of a poster of the most famous tenor in Japan. |
I took a picture, mainly for posterity. _Inigo Montoya: I do not
think that word means what you think it means_.
|More English/Japanese translations|
|It was so weird, because the English books |
opened the way books do. Japanese books
opened backwards. So wild.
|I even learned cool things about America. This marker |
shows the first recordings of Christianity in America. I'm
gonna research that later, I know I will.
