An Update

I wanted to give our neglected, but loyal blog followers an update on our lives! 

We had a wonderful holiday break.  The kids' school breaks from Thanksgiving until the beginning of January so they had lots of time to sleep in and play.  Erik worked during that time, but he did take one week off so we could get away and have a relaxing vacation.

I am not teaching at Moffat this term and instead am working part-time at Rift Valley Academy where our kids attend school.  I'm dusting off my Reading Specialist certification and am working with some students as well as supporting teachers with the language arts curriculum.  It is fun to be back in the school doing what I love.

We are also counting down the days until we are back in the US (59 days).  We are excited to see family, friends and 3 nephews that have been born since we left.  We are also excited about McDonalds, Buffalo Wild Wings and Cheerios!  

Our two year term with Samaritan's Purse/World Medical Mission has ended so we will be transitioning to SIM.  We will primarily be in the Nashville area but will be traveling to various parts of the US during this time and we would enjoy catching up with you either in person or by phone.  Also, if your church, small group, or even a business group would like to hear more about what God is doing in East Africa, please email us as we would welcome the opportunity to meet with them and share about the work.

It is our hope that we will have all of our financial support in place so that we can return to Kenya at the end of August.  Please pray for us during this time as we try to work out all the logistics for our time in the US.  

We are so grateful for the many of you who support us financially and through prayer.  We could not do what we do without you!

  1. I am so excited that you will be making a trip back to the states! I am sure there are plenty of people that are ecstatic to see all of you. Tell Erik we are short a pediatric surgeon in Colorado if he wants to pick up some shifts ;) Your family is such an inspiration to us. We continue to pray for you. We keep your yearly Christmas picture up year round to remind us. Will you still be getting the financial support from us through Samaritan's Purse or is there a new way to make sure you receive it?
