Visit to US

It had been almost two years since we had been back to MN and three years since we’d been to Chicago, and so we were so excited about our trip to the US in April.  It was such a wonderful time with friends and family!   We had an opportunity to relax, rest, play and recharge.  We were able to show Matías and Lucas some of the Chicago sites we enjoyed from our time living there.  We are very grateful.  Here are a few of the many highlights…

Gracias por sus oraciones.  Thank you for your prayers.  This trip was a gift from God that helped renew our spirits and allowed for some time to rest and play.
