Benchmarks

Sooooo... Karissa has been here for 4 weeks today! We are shocked and can't believe how fast time has flown and we know that we only have a little bit of time left before she will head home. The Lord has been faithful in all that He's done and given both Karissa and I amazing experiences and time together. We are looking forward to her last two weeks here and what the Lord will do.

Today also marks a year from the day I went to the bush last year for my first full week. I spent a week with my family out there. It was one of the hardest times of my time here because I was new to the culture, family and language. Oh how far the Lord has brought me - my love for these people and desire to serve here is truly from the Him...

Be watching for a blog in the next couple of days - we have a lot to say so you should make time for a sit down date with us!

My sweet Anna!
I love reading your musings and updates. You are such an encouragement to many people, but especially me! I'm so thankful that God has allowed you to share this time with your friend - what a blessing. I can tell by your writing that you have a renewed energy for the work and I am so thankful.

Know that we love you and pray for you daily!

Love,
Margaret

Hi Sweet Girl!

I've been checking your blog everyday to see if there's a new post. You have no idea how excited I get when there is new news from Africa! You are such an encouragement to all of us, Anna. I can only imagine how much they love you over there by knowing much we love you over here!

Praying for you, and loving you from afar...
