Safely Home!

Thank you for praying for our departure Tuesday. James returned the rental vehicle in Raleigh and flew out from there. The kids and I flew out from Tampa. It was a bit overwhelming closing up the house we were staying in, doing the final packing, and managing three emotional children, but the Lord’s grace brought us through. My dad and some sweet friends helped us out at the airport with our 16 pieces of luggage. I could not have done it without their physical and emotional support!

When we arrived, our furlough replacements, the Schmidts, and other BWM missionaries, the Estremas, met us at the airport. Pastor Schmidt was more than ready to hand the car keys back to James! There are few other things that can cause you to lose your sanctification than driving in this crazy city!

At church that evening, the church people surprised us all with a party to express their appreciation the Schmidts as well as welcome us home. It was a special time. They planned and executed an Argentine asado (BBQ with all the fixin’s) and presented gifts to the Schmidts, Martin (their translator), Victor (who taught every Wednesday while we were gone), and us. They gave testimonies of how the church body unified through our absence and they saw the importance of taking it upon themselves to encourage one another and reach the lost. Those three things are DIRECT answers to our prayers for them!! Praise God!

By His grace alone,
