Home Again!

Wow - it feels like forever since I've blogged and let me tell you, I've experienced withdrawals. I guess I hadn't realized how much I enjoyed doing this.

I cannot post what I want to right now - we're in the middle of our very busy Sunday, but I promise a "report" and pics of our 13-state, 1 foreign country, 5,750 mile trip very soon. Actually I don't know how many pics I can post because my camera officially died during our trip. Thanks to the generous gift of a friend, we were able to purchase a new camera - it is so necessary in our line of work - to help make the connection visually between our churches and pastors here in Mexico and our churches in the States.

Besides that, how can you truly blog without a great camera, right?

Steve, Beth and kids are with us for a few days and we're having a great time. Right now we're preparing to drive out to our village church in Cuchicuato to attend the evening service....and lots more plans for the next few days.

I loved checking everyone's blogs and getting reconnected with your lives.

I cannot say adequately what a wonderful time we had at Pell City and spending time with family and friends. But now we're glad to be back in Mexico, where God has called us to serve Him.

More later.....

Hey, We're glad that y'all got to go, and glad that you got back safely too! =) We're looking forward to reading the report. Sorry about the broken camera, but happy for the new one. =) I've enjoyed seeing some pics of y'all's visit on Tamra, and Janella's blogs.

My girls wanted me to Thank you for posting the website to Odessy, for they LOVE getting on there and listening to new stories, and we didn't know about it until we saw the link on your blog several months back. =)

Take care and have fun with Beth and Steve.
Love, Heather =)

Glad to know you made it back OK. I was wondering when you were to be back home. I loved the picture of Marc(and you all) at the Dixie Stampede(on Myranda's blog). That was hilarious. I so wish we could have seen you.
