Amanda’s German Garden Work

Amanda’s German Garden Work

Leaf Me Alone Nothing like a hard day's work in the Smelser's garden.  Ok, well it took me a lot longer than one day.  I really did enjoy working out in the garden, but I have to say the thing I hated the most was picking up all those leaves.  So I wished all the leaves would just go away and "leaf me alone." So it started out picking cherries off the cherry tree, raking up all the cherries when they fell on the ground, picking weeds, picking blackberries off the blackberry bush, making sure the roses were up to par, cutting the hedge, David and I raking the moss out of the ponds, David...

Wow, God, how did You know we needed a living room?

Wow, God, how did You know we needed a living room?

God takes care of you no matter what! I have to keep reminding myself of that all the time. I try to do everything myself, and it just gets me into trouble sometimes. Well, living life as a missionary helps with this issue if anyone else is struggling. As a missionary I have to lean on God for everything especially our income. This might sound funny, but it is really hard to rely on God for money instead of working the normal leave your house 8-5 job. God uses people like you to help us and I am so thankful for that! Well, anyhoo, Katy met a couple through her English class. This couple was looking...

David and Amanda Knapp’s Move To Peine, Germany

David and Amanda Knapp's Move to Germany from David & Amanda Knapp on Vimeo. On May 2, Amanda and I left from Tulsa International Airport and eventually made it to Hannover, Germany on May 3rd. According to our schedule we had 3 layovers that ranged from 30 minutes to an hour and a half. Our first flight landed us in Houston. We raced to our gate only to discover that our flight to Frankfurt was delayed. We were delayed for 2 hours. The terror alert being orange may have had something to do with it but really we are not sure because they didn't give us a reason. We landed in Frankfurt,...

Amanda I just wanted to thank you for 5 years of marriage. You are the only girlfriend I ever had who didn't tire of my mundane personality or my crazy shenanigans.

Amanda’s Adventures

I just wanted to tell you about my job opportunities that have become available. I will start with Community Support Services the last week of June to help kids with mental disabilities. I have had some experience with the mental health center in my hometown and loved it, so thought I would try it here. Also I am planning on starting a paraprofessional position this next school year. I have had two interviews concerning the elementary age level. Next week I should hear from the schools to see if I am hired. I am so excited. I love jobs dealing with kids because they are such a joy and fun to be around....
