This is us arriving in South Africa on June 26, 2012.

We leave Cape Town tonight, bound for America, the land of milk and honey. It’s almost three years to the day when we departed America for the unknown life awaiting us in South Africa. It was the best decision of our lives. Also the scariest.

Tonight at 11 p.m., we will board a 10 hour flight to Amsterdam. We have a 22-hour layover there where we plan to see the city, a museum and a cafe or two. Then another 10 hour flight to the US! We will arrive on Tuesday, smelling good.

We will be in Ohio, Texas, Florida and Michigan for the next two months. We’d love to share a cup of coffee and talk about life together! Well, maybe we each have our own cup.


USA Bound

Guess what? Our entire family will be in the good ol’ USofA for the entire month of July and August. In just 11 days, we went from having enough money for one plane ticket to buying all 7! I’d say that’s a size-able miracle!

Check it out!

If you’d like to meet up or share a cuppa while we are in town, please let us know. We would love to share with you!


Thank you so much to all who have given! Anything given above and beyond will go toward our traveling and visa expenses. As you know, boys like to eat. Can’t wait to see you!

Missions and Life Support

A caring friend will do that—recognize that you’re camouflaged under the social media facade and call you on it. Looking back over my blog posts and Facebook and twitter feed, I can see that my language changed; I became more cautious and less candid. Continue reading
