Have Your Cake and Eat It Too!!!!

Monday was the day that we hit the States. Our trip was very uneventful....just what we like!! We have had such a great time visiting family and enjoying our daughter's birthday. We will be here in Neosho just through tomorrow and then off to see all our friends in Wisconsin. We are so looking forward to spending time with the Body up there!!! I'm not looking forward to the colder weather but our kids keep asking if there will still be snow. We are truly blessed beyond measure of the goodness of the Lord and the family that we have, both natural and spiritual. Thank you God!!!!
Don't forget to check our Calendar for where we'll be!!! We'd love to see you!!

Heading North

Well the time of year is coming quickly, when we go the the States. It is always difficult to get things in order here, the 'to-do' list grows by the minute, and just Nica life in general makes every job take longer; but we will be there soon. When we hop on that plane it doesn't matter much, whatever is left will be here when we get back :)

I am finding it more and more difficult with each passing year to leave for the States. I know to many that seems is the 'promise land' after all..haha. Nicaragua is our home!

Going to the States has been and will always be a great 'recharge' for our batteries. We get to spend some much needed time with family, and get to see so many of our dear friends. Spiritually it is a rest and oasis for our souls. Nicaragua is such an oppressive nation that, at many times, weighs down with hopelessness....BUT God shines through in those dark places! It can become weary of the constant battle that is raging, BUT He again lifts our heads!

I am so grateful with the challenge that God has placed before our family. I look forward to see what great things He has in store for Nicaragua this year!

With much love and gratitude for all that are filling the void and moving forward in obedience to that which we have all been called to do....keep pressing on!!!

Please see our "calendar" for where and when we will be in the States!
