Well, tomorrow begins the long journey home. With the little guys, I don't think we will be able to drive more than about 6 or 7 hours per day. So it will take a while to get there! By the weekend we should arrive! I have be assured that our vehicle which broke down in Helena Montana is fixed and paid for by the original mechanic who did the work that failed. So that is a huge blessing! We will pick it up Friday if all goes according to plan.
We have enjoyed a great trip to say the least! Our older 3 have had a great time doing ministry with the High School Team and then connecting more intentionally with their Mexican friends the last few days. It has been good for their hearts to come back "home".
The twins have also done quite well! Judeson has struggled some for sure but all in all they have done well! They even sat and listened to children's church upstairs doing the regular church service (Lane preached). They have NEVER done that in their lives. They are always to hyper! But they sat and listened and were the only boys who received a "you behaved well" sticker at the end! Jackson even understood that there was going to be a surprise at the end of their lesson and that he needed to behave well etc! Sheri hadn't heard that there was going to be this surprise so she certainly didn't tell him! I asked him later at home how he knew and he said "mommy told me." So it is pretty obvious that he understood it from the Spanish that was spoken! Incredible! They had a great time playing and running with new friends down here and they even loved the food here too! Maybe it is a sign we should move back! Ha!
Please pray with us that someone at our church will take up the torch and lead the way to continue Evangelizing at the Vineyards! We have talked to a number who are interested but follow through can be light. Please pray!
All in all we have enjoyed this trip immensely and thank each one who has contributed in some way for us to come, be it financially or via prayer or encouragement.
Please continue to pray us home! Especially for the long hours for the twins in the vehicle that are ahead of us!
Lane for all of us
