September Update

I apologize for not updating my blog more frequently. Our family has been traveling the past few months to visit our supporting churches. It has been such a blessing to meet new pastors and their families, and to reunite with old friends from the past. We have been treated really well and appreciate the hospitality shown by all.

We have also enjoyed seeing family in Ohio-- we even got to see the newlyweds for a day, Hannah and David in Michigan, and Jenny and Michael in Indiana. Although our visit was too short, it is encouraging to see them all so happy as they start their new lives together.

Our visit to the states is winding down, and before we know it we will be on the island of Tenerife once again. We received news that our dog Billy escaped from the farm where he was staying, and the woman caring for him has searched everywhere with no success. Billy was Doug's favorite.....hopefully he will find his way home. We are also eager to see all our friends and church people upon our return, and get back to our work in Santa Cruz and San Isidro.

We have meetings lined up in September, and the first two weeks of October. We will be traveling in the south, to Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama, and Florida. Looking forward to what the Lord has in store for us. Then we will return to Rochester and have two days to pack up and head to Raleigh, North Carolina where we will be flying out for our return to the Canary Islands.
