Our Weekend

What a fun couple of days!  On Saturday we drove up to Traverse City for the weekend.  Noah's brother and sister in law threw us a going away party at their church and it was great to be able to see some of relatives and supporters in the area.  The boys loved the warmer weather and sun, and had a great time playing with cousins in the church nursery.

On Sunday we got to spend some time with the fun folks at Long Rapids Congregational.  This was a church that sent a group to Barakel for a winter retreat and got very excited about what God is doing in Honduras and our part in that.  They gave us the opportunity to share more about that in their service.  And then we enjoyed a fantastic meal with them.  We had to skip out on the softball game, but we heard it was quite fun too.

Sunday night we were back in Traverse City, and we decided the boys were old enough to be introduced to the joy of pizza and movie night.  It was a hoot!  We watched Milo and Otis, and really, they only watched about 20 minutes of it before they got up and started playing, but we kept it on and Noah and I laughed through the rest of it.  Every once in a while, one of the boys would come back over, declare with full gusto what animal was on the TV and then wander off again.

Monday we met our landlady for our Costa Rican house, because she lives in Noah's home town!  What a funny world!  She and her son met us for breakfast, and we were able to ask questions and she drew us pictures of the neighborhood, told us all the neighbors names, told us where to get fruit and how to take our trash out!  It got us so excited!

Hard to believe we are down to 13 days!  Just 13 days and we will be on a plane south!  And God keeps moving with support.  We are at 83% now.  That means just $435 more a month and we will be at 90%, what we need to be at for Language School.  Keep praying with us!


  1. Wow! How cool is that!? Only God would pull off something like your Costa Rican landlady living near where you are now.... :)


You are clever, tell me whatcha think!
