In North Carolina

We do indeed have internet here at the JAARS campus in Waxhaw, so pictures will be soon to come! The plane ride(s) were fairly uneventful and on the second leg we were seated with another passenger in our row of three but when he noticed free seats elsewhere in the plane he offered to give us more room and moved! It was an amazing blessing. Not only that but seated behind us was a Wycliffe member from Canada who then proceeded to be on the van ride home with us.

While driving to the JAARS campus we found out there would be no way for us to get the groceries we needed for the week until Monday (we arrived late Saturday night) and were wondering what to do. Our new friend then offered to not only take us to the nearest grocery on Sunday but to show us around the small town of Waxhaw. God took care of the details, as usual:) We asked our new friend about good restaurants in the area and took him out to show our appreciation...but the italian food was so good we were the lucky ones! And the southern hospitality at the restaurant was like none I had ever experienced.

God has been working in our hearts regarding missions for several months now in various ways. We are excited to see what He does, whether it involves going with JAARS or elsewhere in missions!

Many blessings as you open up doors.
