Days 62 & 63

August 6, 2013

Sunday was a fantastic day for us.  We presented our ministry to a small group of young couples, about eight of them.  Our hosts for this event were a family we met while in DRC when they were there for their adoption, which was one of the hardest stories I’ve heard yet.  However, they were able to bring little Levi Alan home – our Levi’s middle name is Allen and both were named because both grandfathers have the same middle name, though it’s a battle of the spelling…we love it!

After church, a few of the couples went out to lunch and treated us to a fun meal at Buca di Beppo.  It was great to get to know them a little bit further – a couple of seminary graduates, or soon-to-be, and even one couple that has done a vision trip with MAF, since he is a pilot/mechanic/IT.  So fun!

Once we were back at our hosts’ house, we readied for a neighborhood BBQ on their cul de sac.  It was fun to meet their neighbors and talk to one who was even raised in a remote part of DRC!

All of that made for a long day, though, so after the kids went to bed Matthew and I went on a little date, thanks to our awesome hosts.  There wasn’t anything open in Shelbyville, Kentucky at 9pm on a Sunday, so we went to Kroger to get some road snacks for the next two days of driving.

Yesterday we jaunted off toward our next destination: Houston.  It’s a long drive and we have a few stops planned on the way.  We managed to find a cheap hotel in Mississippi, just across the border from Memphis.  Today’s goal is somewhere on the eastern side of Texas.  The kids are doing really well in the car, still, only occasionally causing us to pause and consider dropping them on the side of the road.  Just kidding, mostly!

If you haven’t noticed, there is a little schedule of our next few weeks posted to the right on our website, under our picture.  If you’re in any of those areas, just send us a note and we’d love to see you!
