In August, we landed in Des Moines, IA, and attended our home church the following Sunday. We the hugged family as Chelli, Samantha, Serenity and Sadie would not be going back to IA for at least 2 years.
Then travel to and spend the night near KC with some great friends. The next day we traveled to meet with Serenity’s dog trainer and then on to Springfield, MO. The next morning onto some good friends in Nashville and the following day onto Knoxville to stay with our supporting church, Southside Baptist.
In the morning, we travelled to Toccoa, Ga and stayed for a week to help Samantha get settled into her new position as resident assistant at Piedmont U in Demorest.
After saying goodbye to Samantha, we travelled to Somerset, KY, and zoomed a meeting with Oak Hill Baptist.
The following Monday we Travelled to Ashland, OH, staying at Chelli’s home church, First Baptist. We visited family, churches and supporters during that week.
We then spent a few days in PA visiting new and old friends. We then travelled over the mountains to Lynchburg, VA. Thanks to our kids’ successes in school and scholarships, specifically the Missionary scholarship offered by LU, Serenity can study Bio-Tech. After a week of helping Serenity settle in, Chelli and Sadie said their goodbyes and I took them to the airport in Roanoke, VA. A few more days, churches and new friends, I said goodbye to my second daughter and left for Cincinnati, OH.
I stayed with one of the greatest soul winners I know, Charles Proud and his wonderful wife. Wednesday I was at Bro Whitecotton’s church in Indianapolis, IN. I then travelled on to the Chicago area to stay with some great friends. Due to Covid, some churches were not open or could not have an itinerate missionary report.
I then travelled back to IA, meeting with pastors, churches, friends and family. The trip was over 6000 driven miles besides the flights. Many a goodbye along the way. Can’t wait until we abolish that word in heaven!
It has been two weeks and a few days since my return to Germany. We are back in full swing.
I am very open to video conferencing. I have found an incredible OT Missions text I would love to share with your church!
