Elder Gherkins Update

Some days or seasons are just monumental for a family. 

Big things are happening this week with our adult Gherkins and we love cheering them on. Here's a quick update!

  • Jamin placed first in both the 1 mile and 5K races at his first track meet of the season - 22 Feb. 
  • Jared was hired by a San Angelo Law firm! Woot! He will have to continue working at his service job for a bit longer - but this is a step in the direction he wants to head. It should look good when he applies for law school. 
  • BreZaak as well as CyBee love being married (just thought I'd throw that in). 
  • Krista was nominated for "Classified of the Year" - this is through the school district. She says she won't win -  it is nice to be recognized and nominated all the same! 
  • Jamin is writing a thesis for his graduate studies with a working title of, "The Effect of Human Trafficking on National Security." He interviewed a former Ambassador to NATO yesterday. All went well and he may have help getting it shown around when he is done with it. We think this is a God thing as the topic is one which concerns us both as Christians and American citizens. 
  • Krista is going on a mission's trip this summer and will spend approx 6 weeks living at an orphanage in a foreign country. Arielle will be joining her. 
  • Jared is speaking at the above event on his college campus on the 5th of March. It's hard to believe it's been nearly 3 years. 
  • Jamin broke the University's 10K record on the cross country course...today in workout he ran even faster. Since he graduated in December, and immediately enrolled in the University's masters program, he is allowed to race this last track season. Maybe he'll beat his record at a track event. 
It's been a good week to be a Gherkin. ::snort::
