Cold,Dill Pickles, Bathtub and Hot Water

Thanks to all of you who prayed us home safely.  We left the Philippines at 9:00 Friday morning and arrived in Mississippi Friday evening, 22 hours later!  We are so thankful for God's provision of safety and also His help with our making our connecting flight in Japan!
Brrrr this central air conditioning is cold!! While it is warm here in Mississippi, guess it's going to take us a bit to adjust.  But, those dill pickles are just yummy! It's so funny the things that God gives you the grace to not even think about until you return.  Those hot baths are a real treat, but even more so is the hot water to wash my face!
Thanks for praying us home and we would appreciate your prayers for God's direction for our future.  We have already been approved to go to Mexico if that is where we feel that God is calling us, but are praying for God to show us where He wants us to go and what He wants us to do.  We will keep you posted and thanks again for praying.

Thank God for safe travels. Now on to a new chapter in His plans for you. Please keep me posted.

Just did our presentation to the church today. Lots of questions about the transition. You would have loved being here.

Hope you can manage to swing by our way in the next couple of months so that everyone can get to know you.

Dear Steven, Deborah, and Lindsey,

You probably don't remember me. My name is Ronnie, and I was a volunteer at the ABP in San Pedro several summers ago. I'm actually heading to Manila next week with my fiance to visit family and was going to e-mail you to see if I could take you guys out to lunch, but alas, you've recently left! :(
I'm sure God has some wonderful things in store for you! I'm also sure that MTW Philippines won't be the same without you. I was definitely sad to find out that you had left. Thank you so very much for your service to the Lord and my country! Mabuhay kayo. If you're ever in the NJ/PA area, be sure to hit me up :)
