Where It All Began...

After finishing CTEN orientation in Kerrville, we drove to Dallas on June 14 to visit friends and share at a church on Sunday. Fernando and I met seven years ago in Dallas while studying linguistics, before he went to Africa and I went to Mexico. We went back to the very spot we met, right by the mail boxes in the dormitory! It made me miss a lot of good friends I made, but knowing they are serving the Lord all over the world is a great encouragement.

We stayed with my friend Christina and her husband, Jeremy, and really appreciated their hospitality! Christina and I were teammates in Mexico. She had to return to the U.S. due to health problems, but God has healed her, and it was great to see her happy and married to a great man. We are also excited for them as they prepare to serve as Bible translators in Mexico in the near future.

We enjoyed catching up with other friends, and we want to thank them for their kindness, hospitality, and prayers for us, as well. Some, but not all:

Fernando's friend from college 

Daughters of the Wycliffe translators who served on the Garifuna Bible translation project (actually, we saw them in San Antonio a few days before)

Friends from college/linguistics studies and their sweet family

On June 16 we shared at Mt. Sinai Baptist church. It was special to share in a U.S. church together for the first time as a couple, and we were blessed by the kind, warm reception and interest in the Garifunas and our work in Honduras. We want to thank the pastor and congregation for inviting us, praying for us, and making us feel at home.

On June 18, we drove back to Houston and flew to Seattle. We are getting settled in and will share more with you soon! Thank you for praying for our travels!
