We are in Iowa and it is very cold here; we’ve been on the road for the past two weeks between Michigan and Iowa. We have seen a lot of snow and have safely traveled many miles over snow and ice covered roads. PTL.
I am enjoying being in Iowa and spending time with Jenn, our oldest daughter. She is a reporter and we watch her on the evening news each day; I can’t believe how grown up and professional she is. I often wonder where all those years went when they were little and at home with us. I miss those days.
Another thing I am enjoying is seeing the snow; I know that may sound crazy to many of you. However, it’s a beautiful sight to see fields and trees covered with white snow glistening in the sunlight; it will be our last winter for four years. I won’t miss the “mess” of winter but I do miss the seasons when we are in Africa. Fall is my favorite time of the year and during the months of September – November I have magazines in Africa that have beautiful Fall pictures in them that I place out on my table. It’s not exactly the same but it’s the closest I can get.
Thanks for all of your prayers and support; we keep on pressing towards the goal. I will try to start blogging more frequently and sharing not only the itineration news but share with you some of my thoughts and feelings as we continue traveling down the path God has placed in front of us.
