Goodbye Africa, Welcome to Oregon, See you soon North Carolina

A few weeks ago we made the long trip over sea and land from Mozambique, Africa to Oregon. I am happy to be back in our home town but it was definitely sad to say goodbye to all my friends in Africa. It has been a surprise blessing to get this time with family and friends.

Our trip was only planned for a short visit but it has now been one of transition. We will be here for another few weeks and than we will make the move to North Carolina. Having never lived in the South we are excited to experience all the new and enjoy all the beauty.

Heres to enjoying the familiar and the new.

God Bless you and keep you through the Holidays.
