This party is goodbye to all of our friends at this blossoming church, but not for good, just for a while. We have been through a number of these goodbye parties before, but because for many of new friends it is unimaginable that someone would leave this small island and go to the great land of America and every return, is inconceivable. The missionary life is not a typical life. It is hard for us as you might imagine. We have invested heavily in these peoples lives and putting down deep roots into this community. Now to be plucked out of our lives to care for our medical needs is not easy and come with many emotional strings.
We plan to return to live with them once again in September if the Lord continues to keep this door open. A lot can change over that much time, but we are trusting the Lord has His plans. He has been good to us as we have served Him over the years. Please pray for our departure on November 20th.
