On the Road Again!

We are headed home again after living in the RV for 4+ months.  Have I mentioned it's 200 sq. ft. of living space...?  for 5 people?...  mostly boys?  (I just wanted to clarify for any new readers out there.)
Wow.  What a trip.  It was a new experience for all of us.  Between the constant hall shuffle (that's where 2 people fight for the coveted hall space), the constant stuff shuffling (that's where we creatively find new places to store stuff), and the constant synching of schedules  (that’s where we make sure someone is not stuck with all the kids or w/o a car ), we survived the adventure!
But the ministry adventure is far from over.  In fact this is the end of the beginning.  As we head home we hope to take a little bit of a breather from work and the constant activity.  We are feeling a little bit physically drained, but encouraged by the awareness of the need for Biblical training in remote areas of Peru (and hopefully, in the future, Brazil). 

Since I haven’t put up any photos lately, I thought I would make this update short and fill it with more photos.  Some of them are from awhile ago and I had forgotten about them until recently.  So, sit back, grab some popcorn and a drink and enjoy.  J

The guys recieved mail from our church youth.

Mission Bay (San Diego, CA) at sunset.  And no, the SUV and boat are not ours.

By Mission Bay at sunset.  Gorgeous!

Having a pic-nic at Balboa Park.  (And no, we really aren't trying to
advertise for Cheetos, PureLife, and 7Up... but now you know what we had...along w/ an awesome Sub).

Fountain at Balboa Park (Josh and Andrew by it, and Robert acting all cool...)

The famous Pea Soup Andersen's restaurant.  We stopped by on our way back from visiting
friends in Santa Maria, CA. 

Robert and Josh prefer to have their own fight instead of taking the picture pose....

Sunset on the West coast...

More sunset photos!

Mt. Helix overlooking El Cajon.  Awesome sun rays.

Our newest prayer card photo.  Also taken at Mt. Helix.

I have a few more photos, so check back in at another date.  Meanwhile, please keep us in your prayers as we travel the 2000 miles back (and that gas prices won't be too bad!).

"Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses."  I Timothy 6:12 

Quick update:  We did an International Ministry Dinner and it went great.  We had a Brazilian dinner (thanks to Denise Rosa, the Brazilian Pastor's wife ~ they work under Shadow Mountain Community Church) and a video presentation.  We hope to do one in Birmingham and Fort Lauderdale.  If you are near either of those areas, stay tuned!
