where HAVEN'T we been?

here's a brief rundown of some of our last trip. we are so thankful for the Lord's grace and also for the use of aunt kathy's car!

harvest pictures

it was a great missions conference to end our long trip. we were with many veteran gfa missionaries from our church and were able to spend time with the arnolds. so we were with people who have both survived and are surviving this crazy thing called "deputation!"

we spent most of a day touring gettysburg from the arnolds' van. it was fun though i don't think the kids were too impressed. our favorite part was spending time with the other missionaries-especially dr. b!

if you spend any time at all with maggie lately she will tell you about the dairy farm where we stayed in pa and how the cow licked her hand. it was cold in the morning so she borrowed someone's hat. i don't think it's really "her."

some of our favorite missionaries

we've had the blessing of being at two missions conferences with the gibb family. they are extra special to us since they are going to vanuatu, the mission field of john and maggie paton. at both conferences their family was an encouragement and a challenge. you can read more about them on their website.

mystic sweet communion with those whose rest is won

while in mass, we were able to visit some j. edwards sites and the graveyard where david brainerd, jerusha edwards, solomon stoddard and timothy dwight are buried. there were also memorials to the edwards. words really can't explain the blessing. the edwards' sights were especially interesting since i'm reading marriage to a difficult man (ignore the title, read the book) about edwards. i think the time at brainerd's grave will be one of the top 5 highlights of deputation for me. steve posted more pics on our other website.

yes, we are finally home after 4 weeks of traveling. i'll try to post some pictures from our trip soon. we've been spending a lot of time cleaning and organizing and trying to figure out how to live in one place for so long! thanks for praying for us.

on the road

the Lord has been sustaining us these last 3 weeks as we've traveled. we're tired but doing well as we head in to the last leg of our journey. i've tried to post some pictures but they are not necessarily in order. sorry i couldn't come up with more witty captions, either. it's late. i'm tired. i'm pregnant and we have an 8 hour drive tomorrow=) hope all of our faithful viewers are doing well. we miss you!

madison, oh

we spent 2 nights with friends in madison on the way north. maggie enjoyed playing with some big kids and we had fun seeing the tyrpaks.

while staying in indiana we made a quick trip to indy to attend a service at colonial and see some friends. it was worth the drive.
