Visa exit in the States!

30 Jun

We left South Asia for our visa exit on the first of June.  Our time in the States has been filled with sweet family time and memories, as well as catching friends and family up on life in South Asia.  Maddie and Myra completed grades 6 and 4 and will move up to their next grades in August.  They miss their friends in SA, but are soaking up so much fun time with friends and family in the States over the break.

We have spent time with grandparents playing at the farm, playing with animals, riding ponies, swimming, and fishing.

Maddie and Myra left for camp for 2 weeks where they were able to be with other young girls they have been getting to know over the last 3 years.  It is a camp that focuses on the girls’ spiritual growth as well as encourages them how to be a true follower of Christ.  Maddie and Myra look forward to summer camp every year and we are grateful for wonderful grandparents that send them to Camp Skyline each year!

Our family has been blessed to visit with friends and family in Georgia and Alabama.  We have had so many encouraging people listen to our story and we hope you are encouraged by the same love and power that Jesus has given all followers  to love God and love others.  Thank you to all who have welcomed us into your homes and have been a part of helping us feel refreshed and to stay connected with those we love and miss.

Thank you to all of our friends and family that love, support, and pray for us.  Also thank you to 3 Circle Church who have continued to show us love as we’ve been on this journey.  It is a blessing to be a part of what God is doing in South Asia and we would not be able to take part in it without the support you have provided.

We look forward to continuing the adoption process of CK and hope to be able to bring her to the States with us over Christmas.  Please keep our family in your prayers as we continue working through the process and as our family welcomes this precious addition.  You can also stay up to date with all the kids at anchor home on a password protected blog, Anchor Navy .  Message us for the password!
