This month we attended the first of what we hope will be many marriage retreats over the course of our lifetime. In years gone by, I’ve watched everybody else go to these, and it was nice to finally be able to participate in one of them together. We learned so many invaluable things that we are sure will help our marriage going forward.
The retreat ended on Saturday and we somehow found ourselves in Pennsylvania the next day for a couple of meetings (It was quite a drive to get there, but we made it!). I’ve only been to Pennsylvania one other time that I remember, when I was a young boy, so it was neat to go back as an adult and to be so close to the memorials of our nation’s founding. It was especially great, however, to meet our brothers and sisters in Christ who are serving Him several hours away, and who treated us with such great kindness.
From Alabama, to Georgia, to North Carolina, to South Carolina, to Pennsylvania, to Tennessee, to Virginia-this month has been packed. We’re getting into a season of our lives right now where we’re not able to come home as often, but we’re excited about that because it means we’re out making our way closer and closer to Chile! God has been so good to keep our cars running and providing everything we need. Please continue to pray that we will be a witness everywhere we go and that God will use us on deputation to bring glory to His name.
