A Brief Update

March 10, 2012

Whew – today was a busy day!  This week was a busy week!  But today was such an encouraging day for our little family.  First thing this morning I (Lisa) got to go to the Lutheran’s Women Missionary League at a church I used to attend long ago (up until I was 6).  This group, led by a good family friend, had already begun supporting us monthly, so I wanted to take the opportunity to say hello, talk about our mission work, and answer any questions.  It was such an encouraging morning.  The ladies all had stories of missionaries and other world travelers and asked some really great questions (and, no, I did not have all of the answers).  After a year in deputation and five weeks focused on the road, we thought we’d heard all of the questions that could be asked of us…but this morning there were a few new ones!  Anyway, I had a great time and was sad to rush off, but I had to get to our next presentation opportunity.

I ran back to the house and Matthew and Amelia were ready to go.  (Levi wasn’t feeling well, so he stayed home with Grandpa.)  We went to the church that is connected to the high school I attended (and the elementary/junior high).  Again, it was another great opportunity to share our mission!  We saw people that I’ve known for a long time and met a few new faces.

This afternoon Amelia and I had a lunch date with a dear friend of mine, the maid of honor in my wedding.  We don’t get to see each other very often, so we met at Panera and spent over two hours talking about life, its struggles, and how God is our only source of strength when we’re in the trenches.

This week was busy too – we went back to our storage unit and got it all organized and ready to be left for an indefinite amount of time.  I had a night out with a few other ladies.  Matthew attended a monthly men’s group that he has found to be very refreshing each time he goes.  We got to spend one morning with some very good friends at one of those places with the blow-up slides and bouncy houses.  Levi and his buddy Finn (their son) had such a great time!  We spent more time on paperwork, covered some of our stateside bases, and spent time with family.  Levi has been having an off week; we think it’s a growth spurt since he spent all last week eating non-stop.  Amelia hasn’t been sleeping well, so we anticipate more teeth coming (did I mention she sprouted two) any day now.  Her six month check up is on Monday – we’re excited to see how she’s growing!  She is such a happy baby, so it’s hard to tell when she’s uncomfortable.

And, if you didn’t see our most recent tweet: we estimate ourselves to be 93% supported after today!  Praise the Lord!

    Wow, you HAVE been busy! And 93%, that’s wonderful!
    We haven’t seen any teeth yet here, but lots of drooling and interesting diapers so I don’t think it will be long…
    Glad to hear things are going well for you!
