New Hampshire Trip
This week we got back from our trip to New Hampshire, something we have been planning and praying about for several months now. My parents and grandparents (on my mom’s side) are there and we had not seen some of them since way before Emma was born! Needless to say, we really wanted to go, but were not sure how it would work out. If I wasn’t able to get a job for the summer, we wouldn’t be able to afford to go; but if I did get a job for the summer, I had to rely on my employer letting me have a whole week off at the beginning of July! However, God is faithful—he provided me with a job working for one of the men in our church who has a concrete business, and who knew our situation and was very gracious in letting me have the time off for our trip!
We had a great time with my parents and sisters! The kids had a blast playing with their Aunties. My grandmother was delighted to see Emma for the first time, and we got to see almost all of my aunts and uncles. We even got to hear my dad, who is a mission representative with New Tribes, speak at a nearby church.
On the way back, we decided to take advantage of our traveling and swing by the new Answers in Genesis Creation Museum just south of Cincinnati. It was a great experience, with an excellent presentation of Biblical and scientific truths. The kids especially liked the dinosaur exhibits. What a blessing that we were able to go there!
We continue to thank God for His blessings. Please continue to remember us in your prayers as we have four more short weeks here in Michigan for working, packing up, speaking at churches, etc. Pray for wisdom for us, and that our faithful God would continue to lead us.
