This is a HUGE opportunity that i definitely think that you are ready to handle!! Let God bless you, but also bless those around you! Love you bud! Good Night

  10. hey everyone! thanks for your prayers so far. we’ve been here for a while. there are extra guitars here so i can play with kevin too. no one’s really sick so far, just some people have had stomach aches but that might have been from flying or something. we have to get up pretty early tomorrow for breakfast. like 6:30 or something. so i’m thinking i’ll go to bed. but i’ll probably eat candy and watch eucher or something.

    love ross

  11. Hey Dog,
    Enjoy the day – it will be awesome. Work hard, play safe, and let the little kids win. Praying for good weather, healthy body, and a wonderful experience. God is good, let him do the work (take that figuratively speaking okay, he is not going to come and put 2×4’s together or nail drywall). Love Dad

  12. Hi Ross,
    So happy that you could go on the adventure! Pretty cool-huh? Have a wonderful day and keep them singing with your music talents.
    Work hard, play harder! Take care,

  15. Hey Bud!
    Hope you have a great day working in the villages! Isn’t it awesome what you can give to those people?! Let God work in and through you, i’ve thought of you all so many times! I hope you have a great time, don’t work too hard, love on those kids! I love you can’t wait to talk to you! Stay safe bud!

  16. Hi Ross,
    How was your first day at building? I think Jason said you were in the same group so I hope you kept each other in line. Does the family you’re building for have lots of kids? What a blessing you will be to them. God will make a special place in your heart for them and even though you can’t speak the same language may the love of God show through in the work and play you do. Have fun and stay healthy.

Thank you for raising such a great guy. He has truly been a blessing to our team!

  38. hi june. hope youre having fun. good job.

  39. Hey Ross, We found internet in the hills of buckeye land – saw the horseshoe coming in – not that big of a deal compared to the big house. But the house you are building for your family is even bigger – God will bless your work and someday, we can all see the fruit of the Ivanrest teams labor. I hope today was awesome. i remember the day we dedicated the house six years ago. I get chills thinking about it. I’m sure you did too. We love you and hope you are staying healthy. Have fun and keep smiling – everyone loves your smile! Love mom and dad

  47. Dear Ross –
    The house/dedication/family pics are awesome! It has been fun to watch slabs of cement turn into actual houses! Five houses are now no longer just houses – each has become a HOME!! Please be assured of our continued thoughts and prayers as you serve God and show His love in so many different ways. No volcanoes here, but there is a beautiful full moon in the Michigan sky tonight – what an awesome reminder of our great God! Our love to all, Beth Vanden Bosch (and the rest of the V.B.’s)
    P.S. Stucco(ing) looks like way too much fun!!

  48. HI i’m so sorry I have been neglecting you. You HATE updating… I’m waiting… and waiting… and NOTHING! Oh well, I hope that your village daays are going really well, have fun with those kids! This is where God works the biggest!! I love you bud and I can’t wait to hear all your stories!! Have a great day, I’ll be thinking about you, and praying for you!

  49. i saw a volcanoe errupt last night. it practically shot lava on our car. it was pretty hot, if you know what i mean. hi turtle. i think the building days were more fun, but that’s just my personal preference.. i mean, i only think it was better because it was the same kids everyday and they could remember you and they wanted to play with you again. well, i don’t know anything else to say. thanks for all your prayers, they’ve been working great. i had the stinkiest farts yesterday. even ask lara andsandy. but don’t worry, i got medicine after my third one. i haven’t done it since…

    love ross

  50. haha you sicko…

  51. Hi Ross!
    How cool to see a volcano! It sounds like you guys are having a great time! I’m happy for you and the rest of the team that the medicine you got is working!!haha
    Praying for you!

  52. hey ross!!!
    whats up buddy? i just got back from cali last night and guess who i hung out with….Brian! he says he loves you and can’t wait to see you. when you get back and hes at kuyper were all gonna hang out!
    love you

  53. oh gee…you’re so gross… but to be honest glad they had to smell it and not us at home, because pretty likely you would of enjoyed making us all gag way too much! Ok…anyways…hope you are having a wonderful time! I love looking at the pictures, you look good, i can always find you just by looking for those shoes, love it!! I’ll see you soon! love you bud!

  54. Ross,
    Sounds like your having an amazing time…can’t wait to hear all about. Please don’t come over to our house until after the 5th of July. I want to make sure your “system” is cleaned out!! Please check in on Kimberly for me! Make sure she is feeling better. Prayers being sent your way!!!
    God Bless, Love Kimberly’s Mom

  55. Hi Ross,
    We are back home from our little time away and glad to be back. I’m sure that at times you are looking forward to being back home, too. But keep working and blessing the people you are with and there to minister to. I would have loved to see that volcano! Maybe it will go again in January. I hope you’re feeling better. When you think about all the prayers that your team is praying and all the prayers from us at home and from those who know all of you, isn’t it just amazing that God can hear and answer all of those prayers at one tme???!!!! He is amazing and loves to hear from his children. Your work there is increasing the size of God’s family and someday you will see them again! Isn’t that amazing, too? We love you, Ross, and even though I don’t expect you to talk for hours about your experiences when you get home, we do look forward to you being home and adding life to our house again. Have a good night!

  56. last night, we got stuck on the dirt road that we had to ride on for like 2 hours cause a tree fell on our van… it acually was only in the road but it was like the size of my house. i’m really sick now… not. i feel fine. some people are still getting sick. but we go to the village today and i get taco bell and find somewhere to buy a sword… i’ll talk to you guys when i get home.

    love ross

  57. Ross, It is so great hearing little bits from you about your trip. Glad to hear you have stinky farts, must be a true VanderLugt! Be careful when you eat that taco bell stuff, make sure what you ordered is what you are really eating. Just wanted to let you know that I am praying for you and thinking about you.
    Love–your cousin Dawn
