So Thankful for Updated Technology

A week ago we sat wondering what was going on with our daughter. I know that it wasn’t that long ago when missionaries could talk to their families and those that went to visit were out of connection, but I’m so thankful that now we have ways of contact. I have been spoiled having an IT for a husband and…

Wow, the weeks flew by way to fast! Last Wednesday, January 3rd found us leaving West Plains at 8:00 with luggage and our sweet girl for the airport. Emotions were high but we were so excited for Abigail and this amazing experience. A tradition we started was going to the Waffle and Pancake House in Ozark before she left on…

Last Minute Crazy Has Begun

What’s it like to send your 18 year old across the sea? Let me be the first to say that it can be an awesome feeling, because you know they are going to serve the Lord, but at the same time it can be nerve racking. This time has been harder because she has always gone for 10 days and…

Touch Down! Home!

I can remember watching on our cell phone the progress of the plane making across the world back to Chicago. I will NEVER forget seeing that little blue plane on the screen show it had landed and she was back on US soil. Then within an hour I got a text, we are in Chicago and eating. Talk about relief,…

Releasing Her into God’s Hands

I will never forget that hug goodbye, her wave and then her text that they were boarding. Then a few hours later the text again that they were boarding the plane in Chicago and it would be a long flight through the night. I think I was awake most of the time she was in the air praying that God’s…

First Goodbye

As I said in my last post Abigail found WMA at the SHEM convention at the ripe age of 15. What I didn’t say was when she told me she wanted to go, where she wanted to go! She informed me she wanted to go to Iraq and I informed her NO she WASN’T. Of course she knew that would…
