Paul is a Big Brother!!!

Friends and family, Paul is going to have a lot more responsibility come mid November 2014 because a little sibling is on the way! We are so excited to be expecting another little blessing. A critical decision when getting married is not just who you will marry, but do you agree on the issues of children and family life. The most important aspect of course is not what his or her opinion is, but do you both agree to embrace God’s opinion and love for children. Since the beginning of our marriage we felt led to trust the Lord with the...

Paul’s First Birthday!

Paul’s First Birthday!

Following Waller family tradition, David got up early on Sunday morning, March 16 and made a batch of “Swedish Pancakes” for Paul’s birthday breakfast–A special treat that is made to be remembered. Often, it goes along with an omelet, bowl of cereal or fruit. The Swedish Pancake recipe is so simple, most Wallers have it memorized: 1 C Flour, 1 C Milk, 3 Eggs, 1 T of Sugar, 1 T Oil, a pinch of salt and few drops of Vanilla extract. It should have a very smooth consistency to make a flat, but great crape. Once cooked on...

Weather: Chicago or Florida?

Already a quarter of the year is nearly past and we have had much happen. We have been so busy we have not taken the time to let you all know what we have been up to. Recently, we had an opportunity to head down to Florida for some more prison ministry. While David took time in the prisons along with a team of people, Priscilla and her family did much of the cooking for the team. People from all across the country came together for a seven day of intensive ministry opportunity in five prisons in Florida. On one particular day, the Assistant...

Mexico Mission Trip

Mexico Mission Trip

  This past week we were on a missions trip in Mexico. In 2008, a church youth group came to the ministry where we have served so all of their young people could attend a Journey to the Heart. These young people had worked all sorts of odd jobs making and selling tamalis, washing cars and cleaning houses to save up enough money to travel up to Chicago and attend this ten-day life-changing retreat. On that particular Journey to the Heart, Priscilla helped run the kitchen and immediately won the hearts of many of the young people with her...

Happy New Year in Israel

What a special time to spend as a family especially as we prayed in the New Year. Although we are in a country that uses a different calendar, the New Year for us is a special time to reorganize our priorities and make plans. With our whole family in Israel, it has been a time of special fellowship and encouragement. Here is a post with a variety of places we visited as well as a few closer portraits into our lives and who we are.  The Dead Sea Scrolls The Dead Sea Scrolls are a relatively new find in Israel compared to the many other...

Merry Christmas from Jerusalem!

We arrived in Jerusalem on just before Christmas! As the whole clan drove our three rental cars up the big hill towards Jerusalem and caught first sight of the Old City, Priscilla burst out singing with the words, “Jerusalem! Jerusalem! Lift up your gates and sing, Hosanna in the highest! Hosanna to your King!” Old City Jerusalem was decked out with lights for Christmas season even though most Israeli’s don’t celebrate either Christmas or our New Year. Their Hanukkah was much earlier this year and their new year...

Galilee Visit

In just the past two days since our last post, so much has happened I feel I must post a few more pictures just to keep up. It has been so much fun!   We really have enjoyed starting out our time in Israel right where Jesus started the majority of his life–In the Galilee region. This sunset over the Sea of Galilee was just gorgeous.   Synagogue At Capernaum:   What we believe is a first century synagogue could very well have been the one that Jesus gave his message about being the bread of life. It was in Capernaum that he...

Off to Israel

Off to Israel

The dream of any person who has a love for Scripture is to travel to the land where it took place and much of it was first documented. We have long dreamed of doing so, but only recently through some creative planning and thrifty budgeting we are able to actually chart out our own course on a trip of a life-time with fourteen of the Wallers. (Dad, Mom, four brothers (one is married with a daughter) and four sisters. Pulling out of our home in Chicago, the weather was quite different from where we were headed. It started out with homemade...

Happy Thanksgiving!

The Thanksgiving season is not over. It is just the launching to the rest of the year of being thankful for what God and others have done to benefit our lives. Paul sure is growing and doing his best to learn how to walk. He is almost nine months old. While on our way to a graduation of some friends, we were able to stop by the Blue Bell Ice Cream Factory near Austin Texas. It was so much fun and quite yummy! Here we have a picture of the International Ministerial Institute that some of our friends were graduating from. It is one of the most...

Visiting D.C.+Josh & Anna Duggar

We have been wanting to visit Josh and Anna in their new home and see Marcus for quite some time, but it just did not seem to work out. Recently, when we had a free weekend, we made a dash for DC. We have spent a lot of hours on the road throughout the summer.  Josh Duggar has accepted his new position with Family Research Council and did a fantastic job working behind the scenes to bring the Value Voter Summit to us with great success. Great work Josh and team! Part of the perk of going was seeing key conservative leaders who have been...
