Road trip to Naples

On the way there, we stopped at an outlet mall to look around, and we bought Nathan some sunglasses (and a bathing suit). Tomorrow afternoon, we have a meeting with the group, and then we will be going back home to spend Father’s Day with our dads. It’s a quick trip, but it’s good to be out of the “normal routine.”

Tickets back

We bought our tickets today to go back to Mexico. We will be leaving on July 27th, a day after our 8th anniversary. We bought the tickets today so they wouldn’t get more expensive than they already were. So, now we have a return date. It will be difficult to leave family again, but we have a lot of work to do there. We will enjoy the next few weeks of being back in the USA.

Grandma C moved today

Janell and Grandma CJanell’s grandma moved today closer to our part of Florida. She used to live near Orlando, so it’s good to have her closer to us when we are home. We went over there tonight to be with all of the family at her new house. It’s a pretty nice place, and she will be only 5 minutes from her sons’ houses and families. Also, Janell’s Aunt Patrice is going to be moving over here, too. So, it will be like one big family reunion for them all of the time. It will also make it a lot easier for us to visit everyone when we come back to the United States in the future.

Spirit Life Tampa Bay

Today, I had the opportunity to share with Sprit Life Tampa about the ministry in Mexico. Janell and Nathan stayed home because he had a rough night, but the time at the church went well. It is always good to be with people who are really praying for you and are interested in your ministry.

Nathan’s trip to New Hope

Today, I officially turned in the last of the work for my Theology of Jonathan Edwards class I was taking for my Master’s degree. They extended my deadline because Nathan came early, and I finally finished the extreme amount of work that I had with this class. I can honestly say it was the hardest class I’ve ever taken, especially with all of the other stuff that has been going on in my life lately. I’m so relieved to be done with it! We’re going to go out and celebrate tonight.
