They say home is where the heart is and our hearts are where we are so I guess that means we are home! 🙂 We are grateful for our church here in Florida that has provided a wonderful place where we can live and work on the Old Testament translation for the Higaunon. We are also thankful for all of you who have been praying for us.
We did have some bumps on the way here… but that was all good.
Here are a few details of our trip:
Laura had the longest birthday ever – a whole 48 hours due to a long layover in Tokyo and then crossing the international date line! We spent a lovely week with friends in Hawaii where we got over jet lag and saw a few sights. Upon leaving for the mainland, the airline was asking for volunteers to be bumped so we said “YES!” We went to our assigned gate later that day and once again they were asking for volunteers. It was nice riding first first class the next morning to L.A. after the airline put us up in a hotel for the night!!
We arrived in Florida June 2nd and the following day at 20 minutes to midnight, Justin, Nicole and their 3 precious children arrived after driving straight through from Syracuse! (still can’t believe they did that!) They have several meetings arranged here in Florida as they raise support for their ministry.
Monday night, Robert & Ean arrived for a visit! They left Saturday morning. It was great having everyone under one roof even if for a short time!
Thanks to each of you who pray for our family and the ministry we’re involved in.
Since we’ve been home, we’ve had some good visits with Lance’s sister and brother in law. We also had Lance’s laptop repaired and now we’re shopping for a car.
We are scheduled to attend NTM’s “Enrichment” conference from the 20th to the 25th of this month. Please pray for our travels and time together with fellow missionaries.
Secure in Christ’s love,
Lance & Laura
