Hey It's Good To Be Back Home Again

We've made new friends.
We've visited with old friends.
We've climbed the high mountians.
Our Little Papoose is now the Big Chief.

We are tired.

After traveling 8,400 miles, visiting 15 churches, and having a whole bunch of fun we are finally back home. I will give a more detailed update later, just wanted to let everyone know that we are safe and sound.

Here I sit in McDonald's once again. Sorry that I have not kept in contact as well as I initially intended. Connections and time restrictions have kept me away, but here I am to let you know that we are alive and well. We spent the first five days in LA getting my parents situated and visiting with family. It was great to be with Kimberly for a few days and get some quality time in. Liz was also there for a couple of days, so I couldn't resist a picture with my cousins who are also my good friends. Harold is still trying to forgive Kimberly for getting us lost in New Orleans. We had two services on Sunday. Since Wed. was the 4th of July we didn't schedule a service, but spent the day with family. We left Fri. morning and headed west. We camped out that night in a state park in TX. On Sat. we drove up to Altamont, KS where Chad and Aimee are pastoring. It was really great to spend some time with them. It is always exciting to see how God is using young people from our generation. After the service on Sun. morning we went back to Tulsa. We were very disappointed that Bro. Gremillion was out of town, but getting to see Brian and Jamie R. made up for it. Since we spent two weeks with them in Haiti, we feel right at home with their family. It is now Mon. and we are back in Altamont. They are graciously letting us stay in their fellowship hall for a few nights. We were unable to schedule a service for Wed. because the church already had a group there. Harold is hoping to tour the Cessna plant tomorrow, one of his instructors from Moody works there now, so we hope to see him. I want to go the original Little House on the Prairie which is only 30min from here. We shall see what the day holds.
The boys are doing well. Thank God for DVD players. It has been a lifesaver. So far they are handling services well, we just have to keep them from falling apart when it is over. God is really helping us, but we still need your prayers. We still have many miles to go, but at this point we are still excited.
I will post some pictures at the bottom. Someone really needs to help me learn how to put them on the post.
