Fall Memories

This week was full of new memories made. Jamen showed Uncle Ben all his cars and together they played.
Jamen iced Grandpa's head to help his headache
Jamen painted for the first time and Jade watched very intently
Jade and Grandma played with toys I played with as a kid
Jamen and Grandpa played blocks together
We took walks with the dog and Aunt Allana enjoying the warmer fall weather
I showed Jamen and Jade the soft silky milkweed seeds and how much fun they are to play with
We took a trip to Maine and enjoyed the ocean view!
While in Maine we visited Grain Surf Boards, which was very exciting for Jon!
Throughout this week the Lord has continued to encourage me. He has encouraged me through people giving us fresh eggs and milk to enjoy and by the little things that I enjoy doing, baking and making homemade remedies to ease colds for my sick kids. I've been encouraged by showing Jamen all the fun places I use to play, trees climbed and little rivers to throw rocks in. Our time here in NH is not over yet but already I've been able to come to a peace about saying goodbye to the things I've held dear to my heart. I don't know when we'll be back here but I am glad for new memories and old ones that I will always treasure!

Life on the Road

I've decide its high time to write a little more about our life each time I post pictures. So today I wanted to share that we are now completely done with missionary training! Jon turned in his final paper yesterday and we are now officially en-route to Paraguay! We are planning to be in Paraguay in April but to do that we must say goodbyes to family and friends and continue raise support. The first of many stops was to visit Great Grandma and Grandpa in NY.

Currently we are in NH visiting with my family. Its been two years since we've been back to NH and 10 months since Grandma and Grandpa have seen the grandkids. Its been good for me to be back here as well to really say goodbye to all the places I have grown up with.

But its not goodbye yet, Jamen is loving the time he has with Aunt Allana...he miss her when she goes to school and asks to go with her.

More stories with Grandma and Grandpa

Jade being cute as ever!

Please pray for us we say goodbye, pray that we will be diligent as we continue to organize speaking engagements. Pray that we will do things in the Lord’s timing. Pray that God’s people would be moved to support this ministry. And pray that the gospel would go out where it has never gone before as a result of our collective obedience to the task of reaching this world for Christ!
