We’ve had a lovely month and a half of sitting still and getting acclimated to life back in PA, but it’s time to go on another trip! We leave Wednesday morning for North Carolina and will be down there for a week. Looks like we picked a great week to head south, too, considering the weather forecast for this week up here in PA! You would think the middle of March would equal spring, but I guess NE PA didn’t get that memo. So it’ll be nice to be a little further south for a week and get a little bit of warmth! I hafta tell ya – we sure do miss the Peruvian summer happening right now! At least Elena is getting her fill playing in the snow!
So yes, we will be in NC all this week. I will be teaching Sunday afternoon which I’m looking forward to. We’re especially looking forward to spending time with our friends and meeting their families.
Before I sign off this morning, I wanted to tell you a little bit about my evening with the Pioneer Clubs at our church last week. It’s been awhile since I’ve taught kids in English and I was actually a little nervous! But, it went very well. The kids were very attentive and curious about life in Peru and missions work. They asked some great questions…. you know, typical ones like, “What’s the government like in Peru? Is it socialist or capitalist?” ha! Not quite what I was expecting! In the end, I just really hope the kids were challenged to be missionaries where they’re at and serve the Lord however they can. Here’s a little picture of me teaching:
When we get back from NC I will be working on a newsletter to send out. Of course, if you follow our blog weekly, there won’t be a lot of new information in there this time! But, we will be sharing a bit of what we talked about with our V.P. so be watching for that! We had a great meeting last week and we are all excited about our future with BCM.
Have a wonderful week! I leave you with a fun picture of my kids, bonding last week under Elena’s Peruvian quilt:
