I'm thrilled to be writing to you from MY living room!!!! We arrived safely in Graz yesterday. The boys traveled quite well considering the uproar they've had for the last 3 months. Nathan was so excited about seeing our house, his toys & room.... both boys have played non-stop (aside from just crashing into sleep mid-play) and you can tell they are enjoying themselves.
While state-side we had a wonderful time with our families and getting to know the new sisters & brothers-in-laws. Our church family is awesome and blessed us beyond belief. We miss them and are so glad to know that they love us and support us all the way! Thanksgiving was a special time as we spent it with my family and had a little bit of Christmas too. A few days later we spent time with Danny's extended family. We don't see either side often enough and it was nice to end our furlough with family.
I've already spoken to a few friends and they've missed us and are looking forward to getting back to our routine of seeing each other. Pray for us as we also reach out to some of our friends who are in need of our great God.
Thanks for praying and the encouragement. Today we went by the visa office and were given some not so great news, but God has it all in control. Sooo, we'll let you know when we know more about it all ourselves. It's going to be very exciting to see how God works this all out.
