After driving all night and going 4 days on 11 hours total sleep, we arrived in GA to smiles and good ol southern hospitality on Wednesday morning. This place is our favorite place in the world. We love the pine trees, fresh peaches, coastal living, and armadillos. Every scent and sight invoke the deep emotions of home.
But why are we taking 8 weeks in St. Marys GA? To recap, our home area is Camden Country GA. We have spent the majority of our married life there, and Jon has spent the majority of his single life there. We have always been a part of the same church here at First Baptist St Marys, and they just so happen to our sending church. We only left to go to training at the Missionary Training Center in Missouri last year.
Now we have a summer break from training for 12 weeks. We have decided to spend the lion’s share in our sending church for 3 reasons. The first reason is we are a bit homesick. We miss the sights and sounds, and are jumping at the oppurtunity to be back home. The second reason is to help our church with their busy June church calender. We have a kids camp and two vacation bible schools during June, and workers are needed. We are thrilled to jump right in next to our friends. The third reason is to explain our ministry and financial needs to both our sending church and individuals within the sending church.
We are having a blast staying with a couple in our church. They are really sacrificing for us to stay in their home for 8 weeks! Praise God for these people!
Anyway, this is just a quick update to where we are and why we are here. We will update next week and discuss what happened at Kids For Christ Camp. Till Then
