For both Joel and I, Thanksgiving is our favourite holiday of the year. We love the Fall weather, the turkey dinner, and the time around the table with our families. While it’s a hard weekend to be away, we are excited that a taste of home is getting closer.
Exactly one month from today, we will be landing in Canada for a two-month stay. The purpose of our trip is to rest, spend time with family and friends, and share about what we’ve been up to in Macha. As we are entering the peak of hot season we are also looking forward to some cooler weather, a Canadian Christmas and lots of time with the people we miss dearly.
We have planned some visits to share at churches and will also be having some dessert nights where you can learn more about what we’ve been up to and what we hope for in the coming year. Stay tuned for more details. We’d also love to meet with you over coffee or a shared meal and catch up on life together.
While we were are home, we will be needing a vehicle to help us move around. Do you know anyone who is able to help with this? Perhaps, a snowbird who is heading south for the winter and leaving one behind. Or maybe you’re going on vacation and will have one that won’t be in use for a week or two? Even a short period of time would be useful for us. If you or someone you know can help in any way, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
It’ll be a busy month before we go as we have stepped into new roles and have much to learn. I’m also excited that my good friend Jenn is visiting for the month and will be helping me with teaching and ideas for moving forward. This momma is also excited for a few nights away without kids for the first time in close to two years. We appreciate your prayers over the next month as we prepare to go from home to home. And we look forward to catching up with many of you, very soon!
