Our Two Sons Home!!!!! Many Adventures Ahead!!

Since Josh's return from Afghanistan to US soil <YAY!!> we have been pretty busy with traveling to see him at Fort Drum, NY a month ago; orchestrating a yard sale for Operation Nehemiah two weeks later;  and the following weekend welcoming Josh HOME on Aug. 15th for his leave.  In the midst of this past month my sister, Cari, when out to Calif. to donate her kidney to my brother, John, who has been desperately in need and that finally happened the day before Josh's return! It has been very emotional week!

We are now praying and preparing to leave this weekend to be a part of our former PEI (Canada)  church for a week long camp. They have made Operation Nehemiah the camp missions project and we are very excited to be able to go and share what God is doing in South Sudan.  It's hard to leave while Josh is here,  as he will stay back to continue to visit with family and friends here in MA. But we will have another two weeks with him when we return. 

We would ask for your prayers for this trip and a longer midwest/southwest trip in late Sept./October.  We are stepping out in faith believing that as He guides, He will provide! Already we are excited to see some things fall into place as we try to hammer out this longer trip!!  We have many challenges ahead logistically, and are also praying through many other things as we endeavor to move forward. Your prayers and support are so precious to us!!

This will fill you in on our new venture  to volunteer full-time with Operation Nehemiah and what our role will be. 

If you are interested in having us come to your home, or church to share what God is doing in South Sudan…. let us know!
