“A penny for your thoughts.” These days, our thoughts are here and over there. We are trying to make the most of our remaining days here in the States, yet preparing for our return to the Philippines. Our time in the States is quickly coming to an end. We are no longer counting months or weeks until our departure/return to the Philippines, but counting now in days and hours.
We have had a great time in the States . . . sharing with you our partners . . . visiting family . . . checking out colleges . . . enjoying sights, sounds, and tastes of America. To help us remember our travels across the States visiting churches, we have collected souvenir pennies along the way. Check out these pennies and see where we have been.
This past week, our family participated in our church’s VBS. This was a highlight for our kids as they learned verses and their team won the team competition.
Also this past week, Stephen’s folks stopped by for a short visit. We started their visit with a 5k run for Luke, Stephen, and Grandpa Jordan. Then we tried to catch a foul ball while attending a Whitecaps baseball game. Our time came to an end by touring the USS Silverside submarine docked on Lake Michigan.
