We had the privilege of having one of Greenville's best families over for dinner tonight. These pictures don't do the evening justice. We dined on rice and beans, monkey bread and faithful stories! Our kids played together and laughed together. You would have never guessed 15 people were in our little red house.
Our two families are true kindred spirits. Not only do we have large families, homeschool, and have many similar beliefs in almost EVERYTHING, but we have the same passion and faith for our family, friends and God.
My heart is so sad. These precious people are moving to Alaska next week. They have been on a long three year journey that has prepared them for this calling. At our table they shared their testimony on how God has led them thru trials and tests. With amazing faith they followed blindly to His calling... not knowing why things were happening to them... but just trusting.
They found out a few months ago that God was preparing them for the ministry in Alaska! A place much different than here! 2 southerners moving to a place where daytime and night take on a whole new meaning.
They are leaving with books and clothes and gave away everything else. To some, this may seem like an impossible task, but its what their "hard training" had prepared them for.
Our families will always remember tonight. I will never forget this family and will pray for them daily along with our other missionaries.
Enjoy the pictures of the ELEVEN children and the two sets of parents they belong to. You would have never guessed they were in the home. They played and laughed and blended perfectly!!!
We love them!
