We made it! We arrived on an airplane in Houston, TX, on June 14 and have been living with my (Mark’s) parents in Katy. It has been a great time of catching up with them and seeing many friends at our home church, Katy Bible Church.
We are now in Littleton, Colorado at our mission’s headquarters. We arrived last night and will be here a week. When missionaries come in off the field, they like to take them aside at HQ and see how they are doing and what the coming year holds.
Another event makes this day special for Donna and me. Today we celebrate 18 years of marriage. On this day in 1989 we promised we would love each other with God’s love for the glory of Christ. Well, we are still growing, but I am so thankful for this dear woman who is my friend and companion for life. All glory to the Lord for his wonderful gifts.
Please pray for us as we begin visiting our churches and supporters, that we will be able to share our joy at what God has done and is doing, and that God will enable us to return to Ukraine fully supported next summer. Thank you for your continued prayers.
