Byron and I have been on the mission field for close to twenty years now. We can be very thankful for great parents who visit us on a regular basis while in Brazil. We can also be thankful for great friends who pray for us and pick right back up with our friendship while in the States.
So much has changed in the States over the past twenty years. When we left for Brazil, Bill Clinton, was in office. 9/11 had not occured. American troops had not gone to Iraq. It nice to know that the love of family and good friends doesn't change just like the love of God - unending, everlasting.
Over the next six months we hope to reconnect with aunt and uncles and cousins, college and high school friends, and supporting churches. It's not much time, but we'll do what we can!
