Weekend Away…and an awesome opportunity!

October 1, 2013

On Saturday morning we loaded up in a familiar fashion and headed out on the eight hour drive to Salem, OR.  We arrived in time for dinner with some friends from our home church in Tacoma, who are now the pastor and his wife of Evergreen Presbyterian Church in Salem.  We spent the night at another member’s house and were up early for church Sunday morning.  Matthew was able to share a bit with the congregation about our ministry to DR Congo and we spent quite a while after church getting to know as many people as possible.  The welcome we received was warm, even though the rain was pouring and relentless outside.

That afternoon we gathered for lunch again at the pastor’s house.  His wife’s sister is one of my dearest friends in the whole world, and was the matron of honor at my wedding.  For the evening, Matthew and the kids went over to another church in the area and she and I got caught up at her apartment.

We slept another night listening to the pouring rain before heading out Monday morning.  Thankfully the rain ended where it began: at the mountain pass.  It was such a great weekend sharing, meeting new people, and getting caught up with old friends.

Today we will son be headed back over to our house to make final touches before moving in (well, the work won’t be done, but final touches for us actually moving in to live there).  We have just three days because on Friday we begin the first training module at MAF!

However, I first want to announce that my fantastic friend Tara is offering an opportunity for you to purchase any of the great items from Lemongrass Spa in order to help us raise funds for our outgoing cost goal.  I will write more in depth about this tomorrow, but I wanted to mention it since the sale begins today!  You can go here and begin shopping!!  If you’d like to read a bit more about it, head over to the facebook event.
