For those of you closely following our itinerary, yes we made it safely to Colorado. We encountered very little ice, and we behaved like responsible adults driving during the day and sleeping in hotels at night. We took the drive up to be our only vacation on this two month trip so we went back to our favorite place, Bryce Canyon, and also got to experience several beautiful parks as we drove up the scenic byway 12 in Utah. We needed the family time and the break.
If you are missing us again already, just remember that we have all of our upcoming events posted for you. If you are in Phoenix and haven’t even gotten a chance to see us yet, your chance is coming. November 25th, next week, we have a dinner being held for us at Christ’s Community Church in Glendale. Please RSVP Kathy Twitchell at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to attend this dinner. Thank you for your prayers for our travels, and be looking forward to pictures of both our trip and the first ultrasound very soon. (Since it is Annie writing the post and Louis is in charge of pictures, you will have to wait one more day, but it will be worth it in the end.)
We love you all so much! Thank you for being a part of our lives and for caring about us in so many ways.
We arrived back in Arizona safely and are finally getting past our jet lag. We had no problems coming back, and we praise the Lord for His blessings and for all the prayers we know were covering us on our return to the States. Davy was an excellent little traveler, too! We are taking this first week to rest and recuperate before we bear down and get to work on fundraising and meetings. We are excited to see everyone here, and also taking the time with our families to continue to build their relationships with Davy.
We know that God is going to provide for us in amazing ways during this trip. Even though we have not been able to do any real work toward gaining monthly donations while we have been in Lebanon we have continued to move steadily toward our monthly goals. We are confident that the extreme effort we will be pouring into this area and into our reconnection with those people who support us in prayer, donations, and service to our ministry will bring blessings that will surely overflow our cups.
If you want us to come to your church or if you have anyone who you know would like to connect with us and learn about our ministry in Lebanon we appreciate the help in your planning for and with us. We are going to be extremely busy during these two months and any help you can give us through prayer, planning for us, and sharing with others about our ministry will go a long way in helping us have less stress and reach our goals.
While Annie will be in the States for the entire time until the baby is born, we are trying to see as many of you as we can while we are both in the country. We are having two Open Houses in Arizona while we are fundraising in the States so that we can see people at an event that is laid back and informal to share our stories of Lebanon, our needs and prayer requests, reconnect with as many people as possible, and to let people play with and love on Davy.
