We have just returned to our home in Vista after ten days with family and friends. We have been blessed by time and conversation with friends of many years. We have been overwhelmed by their generosity and the opportunities to share all that God has been doing in our lives.
We have spent time with family in celebration of our nephew’s marriage and enjoying numerous activities together.
One of the hard parts of serving overseas is the people we don’t see regularly that have played significant roles in our lives. I am well aware that can happen even if you live in the same state or even city without intentionally making plans for time together. However the fact that the meetings are not possible seems to make the opportunities to spend time together that much sweeter.
These visits, both on this trip and previous ones, during this year have provided a source of refreshment for me (and I hope for you that we have visited) as we move closer to our departure for Cameroon. July 12 is coming quickly!
