Burches, Coffee and Our Trip

My wonderful friend, Collette

Last night we had our friends, Philip and Collette Burch (HIM missionaries here in Salamanca), over for coffee after prayer meeting (which by the way was really blessed with the Lord's presence). We ended up around the table playing Phase 10 which has to be our son Cameron's favorite game right now. And guess what? He beat us all!



Logan was our "waiter", bringing us ice water, coffee, creamer, etc. It was pretty cute - he had the whole towel over the arm thing going on, too. We got a good laugh out of it.


There is just no way to say how wonderful it is for us to have Philip and Collette to mentor us, to fellowship with us, provide encouragement and advice, immense help with the language and just to be good friends!

On another note - tomorrow's the big day! We are leaving to go North! Our first week will be spent at Pell City Camp - Marc's one of the evangelists - then a week for family - and a week for traveling back, etc. We are so looking forward to this. The Lord answered prayer (seriously) yesterday and gave me a sunny day in the middle of rainy season to get ALL my laundry washed and dried on the clothesline. Now I have today totally set aside for nothing but packing and cleaning. Oh yeah, and fixing food for my family - seems like someone's always hungry...smiles...

I have no idea if I'll have time to blog in the next 3 weeks....if not, I'll see when we get back to Salamanca! Hasta luego!

Mom and Dad are looking so forward to coming down to Pell City to see you and Beth and Steve. I wish I could be there too. Phase 10 looks fun and Logan reminds me of Katie. She loves to do the whole restaurant thing. Have a good trip!!

Hope you have a great time at camp and with your family! Not sure yet if we will be there or not...most likely not!

We had a great time at the Ohio camp with Larry's Mom and Dad! There are such warm and welcoming people that attend the camp. We were truly blessed!!!!

I'm praising the Lord for a Sunny day after 3 cloudy ones... trying to get sheets washed from our TLC team and getting ready for more company... but that's a "FUN problem" as we say. God bless you and have a safe trip... Love and prayers, Laura in Romania

Melodie, I have enjoyed reading your blog. I know God is using you guys in a special way. I can't believe you have been married that long, It doesn't seem that long ago that you were dating at G.B.S. Well, that is life. God is good.
