Here they are! It was pretty cool at night.
Here is Nickie and my host family in KL. Auntie Irene, Aaron, Debra, (and Uncle Paul I believe was at work). This pic was snapped right before we left on the bus back to Singapore.
Another really cool answer to prayer that happened while we were in KL happened right before we were about to leave. All of us were on our bus waiting to leave when the bus people said that there was one to many people on. There was a mistake and we hadn't purchased enough tickets. Uncle Thomas said okay he would buy another ticket but they wouldn't let him even though there were enough seats. They didn't seem like they were going to change their minds and one of the other passengers spoke up and said just to get off because the bus was already 10 min late. So poor Uncle Thomas had to have one of the local girls get off and she was going to have to come on another bus later. It was sad to see her go and so without even realizing it groups of us started to pray together that she could come. She actually got off the bus but the next thing we know she was back! I remember praying that they would be lenient and in the end they allowed Uncle Thomas to buy another ticket! Praise God! He truly directs the hearts of men even when they don't fear Him!
Chels and I enjoying the very front seat of the bus on the second level! A wonderful view!
And then on more on a funny note, sleeping was a dangerous thing for some on the bus! Evan and Amelia were the victims of the ever ready prankster Chels and Dani. Chelsea had shaving cream in her carry on bag (I have no idea why so don't ask! Maybe it was a premeditated scheme.) and so they squirted some on a piece of paper and then put it on the sleeper's noses. I didn't really think it was a good idea in the beginning but it turned out to be really funny. Evan and Amelia both were very surprised I think!

I just wanted to blog a few photos from Wednesday. This post is especially for Dad, so Andrew or Mom, make sure he sees it.
We had a full day here in Singapore once again. We were going to go biking in the morning and then return to were we are staying and watch the rebelution but it was raining so we switched it.
After the the video, Auntie Suzie served us a wonderful meal! Here are some pics:
Dad, this is one of the things that is especially for you, a pic of sushi! That was my second day to have it, are you feeling jealous yet:)?
Okay, now we moving on to after lunch. It had stopped raining by the time that lunch was over so we headed of to go biking. We were going to be biking on a different island than the main island is so we had to take a ferry. The ride was fun and it reminded me of my 17 hr boat ride out of the Amazon Jungle. Thankfully though, this ride was much shorter!
One the way there, we saw a war ship. It was cool and I got some pics for you dad and to post. It's cool to see a war ship but nothing to get over excited about until I saw...........
It was a US ship named Pecos! It really amazes me the things that excite me at times when I'm here in Asia.

Trying to look cute, even though it's hard in hot humid weather.
I thought this was very interesting! Malaysia like S'pore likes to post signs of "Do Not's" This pic was part of a big sign in the park. Some of them where easy to determine, such as no dogs, or no picking the flowers, however this one wasn't quite so clear. Perhaps no kissing? I don't know, but this could be helpful in the USA at times:)
I'll post later, and hopefully next time it will be a little more serious.
Some of their clothes ( many of which Nickie had just washed in the fridge and freezer!) Let's just say the stuff in the freezer was a little hard to get out:)
We also put shaving cream on two of their mirrors and on the TP, slimed up their toilet seat with shampoo and TP, and last but definitely not least put instant coffee in a nylon on the shower head and in the drain. Chelsea had the honors of finding that one! She didn't get to take a coffee bath but she was a little concerned to see brown water coming out of the shower head.
But of course they couldn't let us get away with just the shaving cream on our toilet, when we were so generous in our gifts to them. So soon after our room received another visit. Their other practical jokes included taking our mattresses and turning them upside down, putting those little popper things (the ones we used to get on the 4th of July), and then my favorite, they dumped out my body spray and put Kevin Teh's cologne in it!
Bravo to the four of us! I think we did a great job of thinking of practical jokes! It definitely gave me great memories! Thanks traveling buddies.
Chelsea on her master piece!

Dani, our little Indian Princess. She really adds a lot to the trip! Thanks for coming Dani, it's been too much fun! Chelsea, our Bright Eyed Princess who was the practical joker at the hotel. I have to congratulate you on the perfume idea!
Grace, our Patient Princess. She has been enduring a stye on her eye for a lot of this trip. I know it has hurt her and she hasn't been able to wear her contact lenses like she likes but she doesn't complain. The Lord has been able to use it for good to teach the girls during the ATI conference.
Nickie, our Responsible and Reliable Princess. Nickie definitely does more than her fair share of work at any given conference. Thank you so much Nickie for all that you do!
