Many thought we were crazy (ourselves included!) to undertake an almost 4 week West coast trip with our two boys as part of our Home Assignment, but we are glad to have taken this special opportunity to travel as a family. During the trip to California and Washington (with a stop in Oregon to visit Nils’ brother and family) we stayed in six different homes, visited eight churches, and participated in a variety of Bible studies, small groups, mission committee and church staff meetings. We also had a few opportunities to see a few sights on the West Coast as a family (click to see some photos). Yes, we were tired upon returning to Minnesota, but we enjoyed it immensely and feel quite blessed by the whole experience! Thank you for all of the prayers lifted up for safe travels, good connections and good health!
We look forward to connecting with more of you during our last visits here in MN. If you are in the neighborhood, please join us, and pray for these visits:
Peace in Mexico. Violence has escalated in Northern Mexico, including Monterrey, in the last couple of months. Our plan continues to be to return at the beginning of July, so we pray for peace in our hearts about this as well.
