    April 30, 2005 – Happy Birthday to niece Melissa Boyte who is 20 today!!! We love you!

    Welcome back to the Draper’s Diary. There is much news to report, starting with Kevin’s vicar assignment. On April 7th we found out the much anticipated news that Kevin was assigned to serve as a vicer in the coming school year at Peace Ev. Lutheran Church, Sun Prairie, WI!

    We were thrilled to meet Pastor Luke Werre and his wife, Jennifer, who along with their oldest son attended the vicar assignment ceremony. We plan to move to Sun Prairie in early August and look forward to our time at Peace!!

    The school year is rapidly coming to a close for four Draper guys. Kevin is busy with three remaining papers. He has only 12 more classes to attend as a Middler (not that he’s counting)! We are all looking forward to participating in the Seminary “Predicition Run” next weekend. Everyone predicts how long it will take to run or walk 5K and the closest prediction wins a tee-shirt. It should be a fun event including burgers and brats afterwards.

    The boys are taking a rock climbing class at the YMCA. They have learned to climb on the 21 foot wall (Stanley and Kevin made it the the top!) as well as “boulder” or climb side-to-side in a tunnel.

    Sallie’s work continues to be exciting and challenging! There is much preparation being made for this summer’s Synod Convention. Check out the Synod Convention web site! Both Kevin and Sallie will be working at the convention this summer, helping out with the technical aspects related to the WELS.net coverage of the event.

    We were the receipients of a gift of “new” furniture this week. A family donated items to Seminary students and we received a couch, three chairs and other items. What a blessing!

    If you haven’t check out our family Friday night podcast, the DraperCAST, I enourage you to give it a listen. It is a downloadable audio file (.mp3 format) that can be played on your computer or portable listening device.

    We’ll close by sending you our love and sharing with you Jesus’ love:

    And this is his command: to believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and to love one another as he commanded us. Those who obey his commands live in him, and he in them. And this is how we know that he lives in us: We know it by the Spirit he gave us. (1 John 3:23-24)

    Hope you enjoy the photos. Come back next month for more!
