After a 19 hour flight, the Wallers (minus the two non-Wallers in their airport shot) are spending the night in Ethiopia before heading to Zambia. I wonder if Nathan can even get Nurie's texts now.

Poor kid will probably get hit with one hell of a roaming charge if it is regular texting. Hopefully he has Whatsapp. We all know Shrader uses all the internet bandwidth in Kafue to post his pomes so Nurie might be waiting awhile.

Grimacing Kylee is available! Jill Rodrigues

Enoch can be Kylee dream boy farmer! Ohio home has oodles of land to grow Plexus.

Jill: Nuri send Nathan pics of you chewing purple gum while wearing your fanciest dress with modesty panels made out of grandmas curtains! Be sure to show him your bare ankles. 
 

Nathan: Nike!

I don’t frequent these forums often but I thought I’d ask, has anyone seen a pic of Erin Bates’ little baby with her eyes open? The only pics I’ve seen are with her sleeping. 
 

ETA: I found one. 😂

No, they don't follow Gothard. They're just hard line IFB.

Plus doesn't it cost to be a part of IBLP, ATI, etc.?  I don't think anything Gothard related is free.  Those week long family retreats the families attend each year aren't cheap as well as Alert & JTH.  I'm not sure the Rods could scrape together or grift enough money to be an active Gothardite family.

My husband Uncle Catfish (?) is from Canton and he has relatives in Wooster.  It isn't too far from "civilization" and is actually a charming town.  Lots of Amish in that area.  Maybe this family is going even farther off the grid and joining them.  Heck, what am I thinking?  No social media then......hopefully those skinny children can fill out on some of the fine Amish cheese that is made around there.  I can dream...

I am from Wooster.  I was shocked by this news. I currently live about an hour away from Wooster, near Cleveland. Population is probably about 30,000 and is the largest city/town in Wayne County. Nice community. semi-diverse for central Ohio. Has a liberal college there - College of Wooster. And surrounded by Amish, mennonite, etc.

ETA: Everyone is so focused on the two Keller brothers, who look as though they're flying somewhere to meet up with their Robotics Team, that everyone has failed to notice that the #Davidncil family are all dressed as matching pumpkins.

I wonder if the Zambia family shaves the kids’ heads for disobedience. Pris really is a trooper and a baby incubating machine. A trip halfway around the world while almost 5 months pregnant while managing 4 kids. Those were the months when I could barely keep my eyes open.

Yes, that's Davia. Love her! 

Also noticed that the young woman is back. Looks like one of David's sisters. She's too old to be Esther's oldest daughter, who is only 15 or thereabouts.

Yep. Alatheia turns 16 this year. 

It's going to be very interesting how the Shrader kids re-adjust if they go back to the US. Most of those kids don't know anything beyond Zambia. I imagine their lives have been extremely insular while living there too.

The blog doesn't say.  But earlier, they said if the pathology results were cancer, then she would be induced.  So sadly, it seems to be so.

I read the post, and I have questions. First, they said they would induce if the pathology came back positive, so I assume the worst. 

Next, it appears that Anna is attempting a home birth. Can midwives induce at home in Kansas, or did she have to be induced elsewhere only to go home and hope it worked? She will go to the hospital in the morning to be re-assessed if she hasn't had the baby overnight. She's right around 37 weeks, so the baby should be fine. Her medical team seems to be proactive,  so hopefully they can start treatments, whatever is decided to be best, right away.

I think in some inductions, the mom goes to the hospital to have her membranes stretched, and a cervical softening gel is inserted.  This in the hope to start labor, or at least soften the cervix.  Then in the morning, she returns to the hospital for a pictocin induction, unless she gave birth overnight, stupidly at home with an early baby.

Is that Davia in the first picture? If so, she's still the queen of the "over it" facial expressions.

Between Davia and the young man in the second picture, I am getting the sense that the Schraders are pretty unimpressive.

Agreed! and Pris super doesn't understand this one, because it's clearly obvious that the author of the Bible book is talking about and to a batch of people, which there's no way she's escaped that fact as someone steeped in the broth.  I doubt she'd write "today we ministered to the Namibian's"; or maybe she would!

 What's wrong with that ? How are the two Corinthians supposed to know that the book belongs to Roman. .

That's in no way exclusive to fundie dingbats. I see it all the time. I find it amusing when people use apostrophes correctly in one sentence, and incorrectly in the next. 

People don't understand the proper usage of commas and periods, either. 

Back on topic: I think that photo is the last time Jill R washed her face. That's the only logical explanation for the eyeliner crust. She did have "closer to god" 1980s hair, though.

Well, not Klan level racist, but probably somewhat. Gothard and his friends subscribe to the revisionist history view of the Civil War, glorifying the Confederacy and glossing over what it was really about.

Don't the Rods follow Gothard already? Or am I making stuff up? I mean, the banana curls, the make-up to highlight their countenance, the modesty shirts/skirts, the daddy worship...

I've always assumed that attending the seminars was just too expensive for the Rods. But yes, virtually all their views line up with Gothard's. I hope they don't subscribe to his truly chilling views on things like cancer being caused by wives not being submissive, but then again, I'm not sure even all of his diehard supporters buy into that. I hope not, anyway.

Oh, I don't doubt for a second that Nurie wrote it. She's Jill's favorite and truly believes her mom walks on water. Too bad the Kool-Aid she drinks isn't the real kind, or she wouldn't be underweight at all! Out of curiosity, why don't you think Nurie wrote it when we have seen her on video many times talking just like this and endlessly praising her parents?

How pathetic is Jill's ego that she has to be praised constantly? It must be tiring never doing anything wrong. I certainly wouldn't know.

It appears to be a patterned sweater or blazer over either a collared shirt or a turtleneck?

The weird alien flash that we noted in Abbie's maternity photos seems to be erupting from the back of David's head here, like a supernatural cowlick.
