In the last week and a half we have driven 2,600 miles and been in the car for 38 hours. Honestly, it hasn't been too bad. Not only have we had great conversations as a family, but we've been able to connect with friends along the way. It never ceases to amaze us, that even after months or years of not seeing good friends, it's like you were never apart. God has brought us all on an amazing journey and for a brief moment we are able to catch up and share in each other's lives again. What a blessing!
Last Sunday morning, we had the opportunity to speak in Jill's home town of Kingfisher, OK. The Kingfisher Church of the Nazarene was the church that came alongside Jill, encouraged her call and gave her opportunities to thrive a teenage Christian. This family will always hold a special place in her heart. In the evening, we spoke at Edmond First Church of the Nazarene, where Jill's family currently attends. Their love and support were overwhelming. We are grateful for a church that gives so freely to missions and believes in it's missionaries.
From El Paso to Edmond, OK, to Kansas City to St. Louis. From Columbus, OH to Harrisburg, PA and now in Hartford, CT, we can't wait to arrive "on the other side". Five hours from us lies our future of language study in Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada. Five hours from us is Macy's first class in a French Kindergarten. Five hours from us is the beginning of something new.
