I know, I know I stink at this blogging thing. We just got back from our 2 wks of Missionary Renewal in Springfield. What a great time we had seeing old friends and making new ones. Having lunches with our leaders and mentors is always a very rewarding and refreshing time. However it did make for some long days. I did get my birthday day off though. Susan took me to a place that she and Megan loves, The Aviary. Wow, was it good. I had something I have never had before. It was called Poutine. The pic will follow the posting. We had a great day together and I took her shopping. Then later in the afternoon our great friends Steve and Jill McCarthy and crew (NY missionaries to Uruguay) took us out for a birthday dinner.
Ethan has worked all summer in Springfield assisting AGWM and the ISMK office. He was glad to get home last week where he can sleep and rest a little before he heads back to school next month. Megan has been at home with us all summer. She has had an internship with a fortune 400 company in their marketing department. They have both had a great but busy summer. We are planning a few close trips as a family before they have to buckle down and start their senior year at Evangel.
World Cup update, USA and Ecuador did not make the cup this time. So my interest in it was not very high. Of course we have rooted for our Latin American teams but again none of them made it to the final 4 teams. France beat Belgium today. So they will face the winner of Croatia and England for the Championship. I mean who really care about these teams.....lol.
Itineration update, We are traveling a lot. Susan and I have been burning up the road getting our budget raised so we can get back to Ecuador ASAP. We have been in so many new places and we have made many new friends. We are still trying to finish up raising our monthly support. We still need about $500 per month. If you would be interested in partnering with us please give me a call at 479-387-5757 or send an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to connect with you.
