Enjoying Oregon

Posted by:

We feel so blessed to have this time in Oregon.  God has given us WONDERFUL re-connect time with friends and family in the Northwest.  We really needed this.

On our way up, we enjoyed time with Aaron’s family in Arizona.  Then we arrived in Oregon at the end of June.  We have gone canoeing, celebrated Landon’s birthday, gone rafting, visited my sisters in the Portland and Seattle areas, watched our baby start turning into a toddler, done some fixing around our ...

Has it been long enough?

This pic was taken on our trip to Durango end of February.

This pic was taken on our trip to Durango end of February.

Well, we haven’t posted anything to our website in AGES, and during that time NTM converted our website into a blog.  For most people, that is a good thing.  Blogs are easier to post to and they are easier to read/follow.  I, however, am not good at change (Yeah, I know, I’m in the wrong occupation if I don’t like change! haha), and it has taken me a while ...

Language Progress!

Praise the Lord with us!  We received the results of our language evaluations, and we did much better than we thought!  We still have a long way to go, but we have worked hard and it is so fun to see God blessing our efforts.  He is the one who gives us the ability to grow in our language abilities, and we praise Him for that.  He is so good to us!  For more details, read the related news article.
