We recently traveled back to the United States for a three month mini-furlough and what a whirlwind it has been. We arrived in New York City and the transition back into our native culture began! There are many things that a missionary has to take care of the first few weeks it can be a bit overwhelming.
Doug hasn't been in the US for five years, and he had forgotten how things work such as paying for gas at the pump, and all the differences in technology. He is not a tech geek, and the less he has to do with computers,smart phones, and GPS the better. He is truly an old fashioned, flip phone kind of guy.
Rebekah graduated from high school, and we had a great time with all six of our children being together for the event.
Doug has been able to visit many of our supporting churches, and will continue to do so throughout the summer until we return to the Canary Islands in September. We appreciate all the work that Randy and Heidi Geiger are doing to take our place in our church on the island of Tenerife in our absence.
Here are some recent photos.
