We’ve had a lot going on lately! The month of November flew by at our house! Jon spent most of it in the Dominican Republic leading the practical phase of this year’s Discipleship Training School. I’m happy to report that the kids and I survived, but we sure missed him! The day after he returned, his mother and grandmother arrived for ten days and the next thing we knew it was Thanksgiving!
We counted our blessings with some of our YWAM friends, and eating Gram’s homemade pies for the first time in years was definitely at the top of the list! The kids enjoyed special moments with their grandmother and great-grandmother making pies, decorating cookies, and trimming the Christmas tree! We were so glad that Gram got to see for the first time what our life is like here. It’s so hard to explain in mere words everything that we experience. Last Saturday, four generations of Jon’s family served together in the Gerardo Barrios children’s ministry…what an amazing opportunity! We did lots of fun things too like climb the volcano, and visit the beach.
Oh, and in the middle of all of that, we celebrated Jon’s birthday! There are so many reasons to celebrate him, and I am thankful to have him in my life!
Below you will find some pictures of the latest madness around our house!
