My due date is still a few weeks away,
The traveling part of our home assignment is over now.
Once again, the Lord has granted us safe travels and good times of fellowship with friends, family, and supporting churches
In a few hours (1:30 PM Feb. 6 our time, wee morning hours Feb. 6 for most of you) we'll be starting the very long journey from West Kalimantan, Indonesia all the way to San Antonio, Texas.
The ultrasound showed that we are only having one baby this time, and that this time it's a boy. We're very excited.
After we get back, we'll just have a couple of weeks to pack up and get ready to leave for our home assignment in the USA. We appreciate all of your prayers for our travels.
We wanted to let all of you know that we're planning to return to the States for 6 months of home assignment from February-July of next year.
We ask for your prayers for Rachel as she works on her first translation project--a small book called "How the Jews Lived."
We're happy to announce that the Lord has blessed us with another little one on the way.
Any of you who've ever fought with rabbits over a garden may understand something of what we face to keep our produce for ourselves, except that rabbits can't swing in from the treetops to snatch away bananas, cassava, and pineapple tops.
