A week ago today we were in Missouri shopping for and packing our boxes To go in a container. It has been a full week! I want to just say woe is me, because there have been some hard things going on, BUT there have also been some good things too! Last Tuesday we got to spend the evening with our good friends in Missouri, BriAnna and Micheal. We used to get together every week for a bible study when we lived there and we grew to be very close with them. It was awesome to see how God has grown them and been faithful to them… We love this family and their 3 girls!!

While we were in the midst of packing and shopping we got to stay with our friends Jonie and Jason and their two little girls (3 mo & 2). In the midst of their busy lives they managed to house is and hang out with us too!! I love their hearts to serve and give to others, it’s a gift from God. They are willing to do anything for us at the drop of a hat! Our friendship has grown and deepened as we experience life together and loss together, the Lord bonds us in these things and I will be forever grateful for these friends!

Last Wednesday we dropped our (boxes of) money and hard work off at Friends In Action in Mansfield Missouri. Not sure when they will be shipping out, but I know our stuff (&Del and Ari’s) is ready to go! A big thanks goes out to all of you who were a part of that, honestly we couldn’t have done it without you!!

Thursday we got to just hang out with our friends for one more day and Friday we were off, we stayed in a hotel which was fun for the girls. We decided to go out to eat, so after lots of driving around we finally stopped at this pizza place and ordered, we waited and waited and waited!!! It turns out they gave our pizza to someone else, so they gave us some of our money back and basically offered us whatever we wanted and we took the pizza to go and left. We ate in our hotel room, surprisingly enough the pizza was not very good, but we ate and we got a discount… Woohoo!! And Saturday we were off to Georgia. The plan was to speak at a sweet little church that is partnering with us to reach West Africa, and we got into Warner Robins, Georgia at a decent time so we got to hang out with the church family at a function at the Pastors house! What a blessing to experience this body of believers a little more! We stayed with our generous friends, the Schoolcraft’s who we are always blessed and encouraged by every time we are with them! We did our presentation at Shallom Christian Fellowship and we were once again blessed by them and their fellowship!

Fall in Missouri

Fall

Monday morning we got to get in the car for our last leg of the journey to central Florida. On the way home we went shopping at Costco and Trader Joes to get the necessities of course. We were welcomed home by our precious family and a place to stay. We are once again in a travel trailer behind TJ’s parent’s house. We will be here until we find a more permanent place to stay, were so grateful to Lori and mark for getting it all ready for us to stay in for a bit. ¬†We are praying for and looking for a place to stay near Port St. John or Cocoa, so if you know of very affordable place, please let us know!
