To commemorate day 366 here in Baghdad, I think I'll endulge in a short photoblogging session...

Jennyjo on one of her many trips downtown with a boy named Muhammud (of course)

Dan, myself, Jennyjo, and Don getting into the Christmas spirit in the Al-Faw palace...finding a 17ft tree is rather difficult in Baghdad.

The first photo of the band...

Jennyjo on another trip...the Baghdad chapter of Young Life!

Our first trip out of country - a C-130 to Qatar back in August. Every seat is first-class if you're headed out!

Jj doing a little recon in Abu Nuwas...the site for some exciting underwater demolition!

Yeah, that thermometer is pretty accurate...

A glimpse into the center of my blogosphere...if I never see another cubicle I'll be a happy man.

Our crazy Bible study group...never a dull moment.
Jj modeling the latest in Arab fashion in Qatar.

Jj's little room...she did a bit more decorating than I ever attempted!

Sunset in Qatar...good times.
366 is a lot, but not quite enough...I should be rolling out of here in the middle of February, with Jj about a month behind me. We can't wait to see you all, and please keep up the prayers!

Thanks for the great photos.
You & Jj are in our prayers constantly. We are praying for all our soldiers that the LORD God will go before you and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard.
