We're Home!

I know it has been 4 days since we left but we really have been on the go since arriving home. We flew home without any problems. Rebekah was so anxious to get home that the flight from Miami to Lima was exceptionally long for her. David was at the Lima airport waiting for us. That was a surprise, a great one! On Wednesday morning we flew the one hour flight from Lima to Trujillo where we were welcomed by Benjamin, Abigail and Jacob along with Martha. It was SO WONDERFUL. Okay, yes, I cried. It was so good to hold my children again. It is fantastic to be back together. Wednesday night at church we really surprised a bunch of people by showing up unexpectedly. It was fun! On Thursday we had a city wide churches activity here at the seminary so I got to see al my friends at once! Friday after lunch we headed out to camp as a family and spent the night. That was fun and refreshing. It was sad passing the accident scene and reliving those memories. So, we are back to our busy life in Peru. Rebekah is staying busy and is sore from being so active yesterday, she is obviously out of shape! Her hand is doing okay although we are having some problems with swelling.

Saying good bye to Grandpa and Grandma in Indianapolis.

Praise the Lord for safety, for being back home where God has called you, and for the fabulous reunion!! Won't heaven be wonderful - reuniting first with the Lord, and then with all our loved ones who have gone on before - and spending ETERNITY with them! Wow!

We will have such perfect fellowship with God - never broken by sin or distance.

Our prayers are with you.

We are so glad that you made it safely back to Peru. We've continued to pray for you all as you make your transition back to the States for furlough. Enjoy your family!!!
