Getting Settled

On the 12th, we took all the things we had packed and headed to the airport.  It’s amazing how much you can accumulate after a year and a half.  We were able to get a rate where we each got two bags, but we found that it wasn’t enough.  I wondered why we had collected […]

Observations after 48 Hours

When we moved back to the States in the summer of 2013, I wrote a blog 24 hours after we arrived.  I just wanted to write down some things we noticed.  I fully intended to do the same thing after moving back to The Netherlands this time after 24 hours, but between jet lag and […]

The Countdown

We have tickets to go back to The Netherlands.  We were going to leave a little earlier, but we’ve been having trouble getting our Visa this time.  We were officially rejected, but we have appealed the process and are waiting to hear from the immigration department.  Please pray with us that we will get it […]

I’m Making a List…and Checking It More Than Twice

There seems to be so much to do in the few weeks we have left in the States.  I’m normally a list maker.  Mike laughs at me often because my lists can become quite lengthy.  I have a working to-do list at the moment.  Every day I try to get as much checked off as […]

Househunters International

When we prepared to go to The Netherlands several years ago, we went around to many churches to gain prayer and financial support.  Inevitably, someone would ask me if I had seen the show How It’s Made.  There was an episode where they showed how wooden shoes are made. During this past year, I often […]

Home Sweet Home

The summer is really flying by!  We were in Arkansas for three weeks.  I love being able to be with my family, and it was a treat to be able to stay with them during that time.  While we were there, we spoke at several churches and a kids camp.  From Arkansas, we went to […]

Road Weary

One of the things that we knew we would not enjoy about America is how much of the time you spend on the road.  Normally, I don’t think that many people are in the car quite as much as we are.  We are usually driving each Sunday and often other days during the week.  We […]

Checking Things off My List

I’m pretty sure that I’ve said it before, but I’m a list maker.  When we were preparing to pack everything up in The Netherlands and move out of our house, I had a huge list.  I was so happy to check those things off.  When we got back to the US, I made another list. […]

Observations after 24 hours

I had the grand idea to write a blog about our initial observations on America after our return, but at the 24 hour mark, I was busy getting dinner ready.  After that, I hit a wall and could hardly keep my eyes open much less think and compose anything that made sense. We got in […]

A Lot of Lasts

The way that our missions organization works, we serve four years on the field and one year in the States raising money to come back.  Sometimes it’s a bit of a hassle going back and forth, but there are some pros as well.  For example, we don’t get to see family too often.  It’s not […]
