They Made It!

The Contreras Family, missionaries in Spain made it to our house last night after a 12 hour drive. I feel so bad that they would drive that far to spend 2 nights with us, but missionaries understand things like that. For the chance to meet other like minded christian workers in the cause of worldwide evangelism…I guess we’d do just about anything. We praise the Lord for their safe arrival.

Dani brought a gift for me from Pilar. Pilar and her family are also missionaries in Spain and had the Contreras family in their home prior to them coming here. Isn’t this Spanish plate beautiful?!

Thanks Pilar!

The kids are having a great time running and playing. They’ve already watched movies, played soccer, climbed trees, played with hamsters, thrown a baseball and they’re now in search of something else to do…..always something else. We’re about to go to a restaurant and introduce the Contreras family to Portuguese food and then to the park.

It looks like the girls are having a good time ganging up on the one with the orange shirt.. I cant tell if its a boy or girl? The plate is very pretty. Im glad you gave us a picture of you and Dani.

    I am so in awe at how the Lord has orchestrated all of our time together and how all the children have gotten along so well. Your girls are beautiful inside and out. (I wish Pilar could have been here too with her family but soon we can all meet!)

    I bet y’all are having so much fun! That kind of drive is like driving from here to WDW. With one lunch break and a couple of potty breaks. Maybe one snack break. Sometimes, we can make it in 10 hours.

    You will have to take photos and report what you are doing!!!

    Oh wow, I’m so jealous!!! What a treat and I’m sure you two hit it off great.
    Seems like the kids had a great time despite a gender wall, who wouldn’t with hamsters?

    So glad you had a good time!
