2 Years in Portugal

Today, two years ago we left America.....





Flew on three different planes over a 24 hour period.....




And finally arrived at our new home....


with our 17 pieces of luggage...


and found cala lilies in our yard!


God is So Very Good!
Happy Anniversary to us!

Happy anniversary, Nina! Your pictures bring back so many memories of our own trips through the airport with a half dozen little ones in tow. Even the footlockers are the same!

Happy Anniversary to you guys!!! I can't wait t oget to Croatia with my family and know what it's like to celebrate being on the field. =)

Don't get me wrong, we celebrate everyday each step closer and certainly don't stop living. However, deputation knows how to drive a woman completely insane! I want my own home, kitchen, bed, and my own normal! lol (if that is possible in a foreign country)

All in His own sweet time, we will get there soon. God Bless You all!

Awe!!!! It makes me want to cry and laugh to see those pictures. So much excitement, yet, we were so sad here that you were leaving. Your life has been such a light to me. You seem to always be lifting up other people... and I love you for that. I really just love you, and I'm so happy that your life is going so great! You're happy where God put you, and that's how you know you're under His wings. It can't always be easy, but it is always right. I love you and I miss you! I may try to hit you up on skype later today. The boss man is off work, so I get a little play time :)
Love you ohhhh so much!

Hey, I just took a trip down memory lane.
I went back and read some of your old post. The day you left and the story of the flights and then getting to your new home.
The video you did for candles in the corner? that is such a hoot.. well the end of it anyway. I played it 5x.
God has blessed me with an awesome daughter. He knew something I didnt know when you were about 15yrs old. He knew you would be a preachers wife/missionary. I wish I could have known. It would have save me alot of heart ache when you were a teenager.
Nina, I cry as I type this. I love you so much and miss you so much. My heart aches sometimes just to hug you and my babies.

I love you sweet girl. Mom
