Goodbyes continue. We have been blessed by having the opportunity to visit more friends for dinner, desert, and fellowship. The Dwyers are fellow missionaries on their way to Australia. They are with the Navigators, and will be doing ministry work in Sydney. The Roops are a great family we have known for a long time. Their children are home schooled, and we have done some field trips and other fun stuff with them. Madison and Linnea have been in AWANA's together for 7 years. Both families have been very encouraging in our trials during our itineration, and it is with mixed emotions that we leave them. However, we know for a fact that we will be seeing them in Honduras in the future. We look forward to that time.
Madison has been diligently packing and her room is almost complete. I'll probably finish it up while she is at grandmothers house. She will be over at her house getting wonderfully spoiled until Saturday where we have a family going-away party. Sunday, church, and a fellowship going-away party, then leave Sunday evening to San Francisco where we will catch the red-eye and arrive in San Jose, Costa Rica around 9:30 in the morning. Well refreshed I'm sure. I should have an opportunity to write again, but if there is a few days delay, you will all know why. It will also take a few days to set up Internet, so there may be as much as a week delay from this and my next blog. Patience please, but we will have some wonderful pictures to share by that time, so the wait will be worth it. God Bless to all.
