It seems like missionary life is full of travel. Especially life on furlough.
I can’t believe it was only September when we were leaving our tribal home for a time in the US.
After getting on a slightly bigger plane, I arrived in upstate New York, where my dad’s family lives.
From there, I took a bus to Massachusetts, where I got to share about the work with the Nahuatl with some dear friends and supporters.
Next stop: Ontario, Canada, where I spent the night with some friends from long ago. It was so great to re-connect!
From there, I headed to Michigan, where I am staying for the bulk of my home assignment time.
I took a trip to southern Michigan to visit my brother and spend time with some other friends from South America, the Coes.
When I got back to my sister’s house, I got a job offer as a bilingual reading interventionist at her school. I was excited about this opportunity to make some extra money to help with all my traveling!
Soon enough, the weather started changing, so I decided it was time to get in one more road trip before the snow started falling. Off to Missouri!
I got back to Michigan just in time to hang out with my family. My parents arrived from Florida for Thanksgiving and it has been wonderful to be together again.
Thanksgiving looked more like Christmas this year in Michigan. We have had record snow falls for November, so I will take a little break from traveling while the roads are icy. Soon enough, though, I’ll be off to Indiana, Traverse City, Florida, Colombia (yes, the country!), and Wisconsin. And that’s just part of what I have planned for the rest of this time in the US, so for now I’m going to hunker down out of the cold and enjoy time with my family.
