Summer 2008

Hey Friends and Family,

Alright, if you're still following along, thank you for your faithful blog devotedness. It has been a busy summer, its amazing how much faster paced things are here in the states. We had another incredible experience in Mexico with students that we are serving with in our college/career ministry, recently named "SOLD OUT"! We have both been busy working, Kealy was given a short term job at Newport Restaurant as a hostess and I have continued to work at Best Buy Costumer Service. We are preparing for the school year, looking forward to getting into a normal routine. Kealy is continuing to wait for a job to open up and I will be starting seminary school two weeks from tomorrow. We are excited for our future here in Keizer and the upcoming school year.

We celebrated our fourth year of marriage together on August 1st, with a fun weekend at Detroit Lake, a wonderfully romantic dinner and a fun time sharing and remembering the last four years of our marriage. We can't believe its gone by so fast. We love being married so very much.

God has continued to be faithful to us and we are enjoying immensely our service and experience with the college/career ministry at Salem E. The students and staff have been so willing to share their lives with us and we have done lots of things together this summer: A trip to Seattle, Mexico, Beach Trips and camping at Detroit Lake. We also got to enjoy a Thornberry family reunion (Kealy's side) and will be heading to Sandy this weekend to spend time with Ryan's family. We thought we'd share some pictures with you of this summer so you can get an idea of what we've been doing.

Keep an eye out for this blog, as we strive to be more consistent in our posting. Thank you, as always, for your love, prayers and support.

In Christ,
Ryan and Kealy Thorson
