One of the joys of ministry is seeing our kids share their stories with friends and churches. Often, when we arrive to a new home or church, our kids are shy and quiet at first. They are once again in a new place among new faces. But by the time we are packing up and getting ready to leave, they are talking people’s ears off. The boys love to tell stories of their experiences with cobras, monitor lizards, and climbing coconut trees. On top of telling stories, Jonathan loves climbing the Pastor, as if he were a coconut tree. As parents, we often tell Jonathan not to do this, but Pastors are often very playful with him.
A couple of times, Rebekah has had the opportunity to share in churches about her Agutaynen friends. Churches enjoy hearing her perspective and often ask her questions, too.
Our time in the States is nearing an end. The kids still have a few more opportunities to meet new people as we continue to share in churches and in homes. However, our travels are now primarily just in Michigan. Thank you again for your prayers.
