We’ve seen people applaud and weep in response to God’s work among the Yetfa. Parts of furlough have been busy and demanding, but overshadowing the demands of furlough have been times of refreshment. We’ve spent time with family, reconnected with old friends, and made some new ones.

While reporting and ministering to churches, we’ve also had healthy doses of recreation. We’ve…

Ridden rollercoasters

Watched knights jousting

Swam at 2 beaches

Been to 4 state parks

Explored 2 Cave systems

Enjoyed Tubing, Horseback Riding, Hunting, Fishing, Hiking, Skeet Shooting, Shopping, Bounce Houses, Mining for gems/fossils, Crabbing

Visited the Space Center, Lego Land, 2 Zoos

And much more!

It’s inevitable. As missionaries, there’s no way around heart wrenching thrill of ‘going’.

The most frequent question we hear these days is “Are you ready to go?”

My answer is always, “I’m ready to go, just not ready to leave.”
